Innovation & Technology: Denki Puzzle by Yuri Suzuki at the Design Museum

As part of the museum’s Designers in Residence program, Tokyo-born Yuri Suzuki enlisted the help of Technology Will Save Us to create a simple DIY kit that encourages people to fix their own electronic devices.

Continuing its support for the next generation of design talent, the Designers in Residence program at the Design Museum in London this year has asked its five lucky finalists to explore and respond to the brief: “Thrift”.

Answering this theme, Tokyo-born Yuri Suzuki enlisted the help of Technology Will Save Us to “re-design the communication system of electronics,” and create a narrative that encourages users to fix their own electronic devices.

Denki Puzzle is essentially a DIY kit comprising bespoke printed circuit board (PCB) components, which, when assembled (each component is shaped to visually represent its unique function), can be made into actual working appliances, such as a radio or a light.

Suzuki hopes that users will creatively experiment with the interactive puzzle, and gain basic knowledge and understanding into the complexities of modern technologies.

You can read about Suzuki’s first completed project during his residence at the Design Museum (Tube map Radio) via Dezeen.  Also, keep watching the site for our review of Digital Crystal: Swarovski at the Design Museum, which continues until January 13th. – Samantha Fox
