A Lovely Minimalistic HiFi Speaker

Not a day goes by when a company (or a hip-hop artist) introduces a new connected speaker system into the market. Many/Most don’t quite meet my design/sound/taste sensibilities so I keep on using the good old headphones and occasionally turn up the tunes on my Sonos. Today, I stumbled upon this wonderful speaker designed by British industrial designer, Oliver Staiano. It has a wood base with four timber legs and has a felt covered front. It has smartphone docking startup and of course it has a power cable in the back. I like the idea of natural materials – wood and wool – bringing a minimalistic warmth to our increasingly digital music, though I don’t think one can go out and buy it 🙂 (via & Photos courtesy of Oliver Staiano)
