A limited edition, wall-mounted CD player in the shape of a fan, designed by Ideo designer Naoto Fukasawa, launches in the UK in Muji stores on 5 November. The design features a power cord which, when pulled, turns the player on and off. The sound emits from the surround and controls are placed on the top edge of the device. The product is already distributed widely in Japan, but it will be seen for the first time in this country when 100 players are launched in 11 Muji stores in London, Reading and Kingston-upon-Thames. The CD player retails at £79.
