I love the way that the Lexon Hybrid Radio has been designed with a bit aesthetic throwback to a traditional type of craft. There would be some sense in giving this established technology a futuristic appearance; however, Mathieu Lehanneur's approach seems to be a more authentic and interesting one.

"Digital intelligence is blended here with a raw material, what might be called smart and craft!" This is what is said of this lovely electronic product. The speaker component of the gadget has been covered with woven rattan for an unexpected and broadly perforated surface. The natural woody tone and texture of this section of the Lexon Hybrid Radio contrasts yet complements the white or graphite casing. A digital display further reinforces this whimsical juxtaposition.
