At Maison & Objet this week, Lexon announced its new range of renewably-powered small appliances, encased in corn bio-plastic with bamboo trim (and not at all shy about it's eco-chic aesthetic). The collection, designed by Elium Studio, the brains behind Lexon's all foam radio from 2007 and the waterproof Tykho radio from 1998, refines the finish qualities of bio-plastic, pairing its matte, unchanging finish with the "artisan touch" and "elegant patina" of bamboo.
The press release includes only the cute crank-up radio pictured top (which you can plug an iPod into, by the way), but I dug around a little bit on Lexon's site and found pictures/renderings of the rest, including a cell-phone-like pocket flashlight, calculator, wall clock and travel clock, all powered by the sun.
More after the jump.
