LEXON | Radio | Tykho 2 LA100W White
White Tykho 2 AM/FM Radio LA100W with rubber cover
The Tykho Radio is a style icon and a great example how form and functionality can work harmoniously together. The updated design of the new Tykho2 is again reduced to the absolute minimum, there is the speaker, + and - push buttons for the volume, two round buttons for AM or FM, an antenna for reception and that is about it. The antenna rotates and doubles as station tuner for frequency search. The white radio is entirely encased in a silicone rubber cover which makes it splash-proof. This allows to use it in the shower, by the pool, in the kitchen or as outdoor radio, even on the beach.. The Tykho2 keeps the minimalist, playful design of the first version, designed by Marc Berthier in 1997, but carefully modernised outside and with built-in rechargeable battery and USB port.
From the Lexon range the Tykho radio has won the most design awards, it is part of the permanent New York MoMA collection and chosen by the Pompidou Centre Paris as one of only 2 objects that signify the 1985 – 2000 period.
