Hairy Creature Speakers
These speakers are like friendly pets to have around. You can take them for a walk and enjoy their glow in the dark. On request of Yamaha, Studio Tord Boontje has transformed these industrially produced speakers into handcrafted objects. This approach to technology stems from the studio’s desire to make everyday objects warm, characterful and materially interesting. The exaggerated handle on top clearly expresses the portability of this rechargeable Bluetooth speaker and references transmission antennas. The light is amplified by a custom made an acrylic lens, which also functions as a sound reflector.
