Natural Keyboard by Robbie Tilton

Do you ever get the urge to stand in the grass barefoot instead of indoors on carpets or hardwoods? Living in an advanced technological world tends to remove many natural experiences from our lives and have them replaced with all things cold and metal. In an effort to create something “both visually and tactile-ly stimulating,” Robbie Tilton designed and fabricated the Natural Keyboard as a way to return to a more organic product.

The wireless keyboard is made of organic materials with the body and keys both made of wood and the frame being outfitted in imitation moss giving the piece the “tactile sensation” he was after. No watering required!
