Its not so much the product I admire, it’s the story and intention behind it. After he received his degree in industrial design, he didn’t want to work in the city as it was too far from his hometown, but there was no work in his hometown, so he decided to make small wooden objects and sell them. Eventually he developed a range of wooden radios that are constructed using traditional techniques and provides work for up to 30 locals craftsmen.
