Eco Radio Log

It is a "green" radio made out of a rough wooden log. The radio is solar powered.
There is no battery or any power wire. The top left button turns the radio "on" and changes the volume. And the top right button changes the radio frequencies. The little holes are the speakers and we wanted them to look like a music equalizer.
More fantastic work by Christophe Gouache can be found here.

Every day, after you remove one apple from the tube and eat it, the rest of the apples will move down and reveal today’s date. At the end of the month, the tube is refilled with 31, 30 or 28 apples.
