Retro Eco-Friendly Stereos

Live a Greener Lifestyle by Using the Card Radio

— August 17, 2011 — Eco
When it comes to eco-friendly, minimalist design, the Card Radio scores quite well.

The Card Radio is a simple stereo that was designed by SUCK UK and Christopher McNicholl. The item is made entirely out of cardboard and it's quite attractive even though it's extremely subtle in terms of design aesthetics. It features a 9W speaker, external knobs and retractable aerial. For those who still prefer the comforts of an MP3 player, the piece has a 3.5mm audio jack that will let you connect your device so that you can enjoy your own music.

Overall, the design of Card Radio is clean, simple and effective. The whole approach to eco consciousness has been executed brilliantly and it shows minimalist design at its best. It's a nice change from some of the fancier products that have been released.
