    The brief for Kiwi & Pom was to create a shower radio concept for John Lewis that solved the design problem of achieving good signal reception. Kiwi & Pom wanted to create a concept that changed the archetypal ‘shower radio’ model, proposing a design that would also feel at home around the house or garden.

    Key features of the design include a rubberized finish and oversized dials, offering grip and ease of use for wet hands. Preset buttons allow multiple users to select and save their favourite stations.

    Kiwi & Pom disguised the aerial within the strap - allowing for a longer antennae to be used for best reception, while also providing a useful handle and hanging strap. Kiwi & Pom also proposed a concept for a removable wall-hanger suction cup, allowing the radio to be hung in the absence of a tap or hook.

    An easy-touch on/off function allows the user to turn the radio on and off just by pressing the front panel.

John Lewis Shower Radio

The brief for Kiwi & Pom was to create a shower radio concept for John Lewis, which solved the design problem of achieving good signal reception within this specialty product.

Kiwi & Pom wanted the design of the shower radio to feel at home around the house or garden, as it would in a bathroom. The design solution offered a clean, minimal aesthetic and elegant form.

Key features of the design include a rubberized finish and oversized dials, offering grip and ease of use for wet hands. An easy-touch on/off function allows the user to turn the radio on and off just by pressing the front panel.

Kiwi & Pom proposed a strap for the radio to incorporate a built-in aerial, providing better reception and disguising the antennae within a useful handle. As most shower radios incorporate the antennae within the length of the body, integrating the aerial within the strap allowed for longer antenna to be used, achieving great reception.

The strap offers the option for hanging over a tap or shower head, or carrying from one place to the next. Kiwi & Pom also proposed a concept for a removable wall-hanger suction cup, allowing the user to hang the radio wherever they choose.
