Project Details

Date: June 4, 2014

With Figaro I was aiming to create a timeless consumer product that irradiates personality and stands out from the crowd. The concept is meant to appeal to the design conscious audiophile, who puts equal value on aesthetics, and sound quality.
With the use of valve amplifiers, Figaro is paying tribute to antiquated technology, while welcoming modern standards as it features Airplay, making the user able to stream music, radio or audio books directly from a smart phone or tablet.

The completely analogue interface is a statement, suggesting a reduced level of complexity in a product category that is characterized by increasingly bewildering user interfaces. The goal was that no-one should ever need to read an instruction manual for this radio.
