Why have your cell phone lying on your bedside table, when you can be woken up by a superb design object such as the AC 01? No fumbling around in the dark, no radiation emissions, and no unwanted calls in the middle of the night; just the pleasure of trusting your sleeping hours to a wonderfully simple object that, thanks to its extraordinary simplicity, will delight you every time you wake up to it.'
