It was love at first sight and sound when I clocked eyes on Orla Kiely's new PURE EVOKE Mio radio, which she launched at her shop in Covent Garden last night. The digital and FM portable radio features her nostalgic signature stem print and is finished with a mirror chromed handbag style handle, walnut veneered cabinet and cream fascia.
The portable design features an optional ChargePAK that gives you 24 hours of listening between charges - so it's perfect for sailing away to the sounds of the Shipping Forecast wherever you are (or perhaps that's just me with the Shipping Forecast fetish).
Not only does it look good, sitting pretty on the side, but the PURE EVOKE Mio radio by Orla Kiely is packed with useful features - you can connect your iPod/MP3 player to listen to your personal tunes, and with textSCAN™ and Intellitext® you can pause and control scrolling text and store information for browsing at a later date. There's an alarm, kitchen timer and 30 presets too.
'I love to create quality and functional down-to-earth designs that integrate colour, pattern, texture, graphic control and rhythm that continually work and rework together,' said Orla Kiely. 'Radio is also a passion and PURE’s EVOKE Mio was the ideal product to apply my signature stem design to, as it is both practical and a thing of beauty that will complement any home interior design and sits perfectly within my homeware range.'
