Japanese designer yuri suzuki has sent designboom images of his ‘london underground circuit maps’ project developed
as part of the designers in residence program at the london design museum, on show until january 13th, 2013.
responding to ‘thrift’ as a theme, suzuki’s work explores communication systems in consumer electronics.
a printed circuit board (PCB) is used as a precedent for developing a electrical circuit influenced by harry beck’s iconic
london underground map diagrams. by strategically positioning certain speaker, resistor and battery components throughout the map,
users can visually understand the complex networks associated with electricity and how power is generated within a radio.
