This iron is a radio. By disconnecting the function from the form, we reinterpret the interaction with the object, and play on expectations and deeply held discomforts.
We all learn as young children that the metal plate of an iron is hot, you do not touch it - but now, exactly this is necessary. Here, the plate is used to select stations, while the knobs and dials control the rest of the radio's functions, such as volume, and switching between AM/FM.
