Regular rechargeable batteries that can also be wound-up if there’s nowhere to plug them in. Most likely consumers wouldn’t want to use the crank option to fully charge them on-the-regular. However, these could be great for camping and other situations where electrical outlets are un-available.
I grabbed this out of a section in this month’s Azure Magazine that highlights great design coming out of Istanbul. From the recently disbanded ünal&böler, ömer ünal designed these book and wine hangs called Sek. It’s an interesting concept, one that he seems to have explored in a few of his other projects (salkım, nar, petek, and sema), all of which approach book storage in an interesting and unique way. Plus, I’m a big fan of the photo.
