In my childhood home there was an old portable radio, one of those appliances that had the names of several European cities on the tuning dials. A feature from the time when one could still listen to stations from foreign countries.
The list of those places, which to me as a child appeared so mysterious and exotic, stimulated my imagination and gave that ordinary forgotten object a deep sense of magic.
When recently I had in mind to design a radio I remembered that sensation and decided to create something that would allow you to travel with your imagination into a landscape of exotic sounds and languages. An object that – in contemporary key – expresses the analog flavor of the old appliances.
Palomar loved the idea and together we developed The CityRadio.
