The clear speaker is an eye-catching concept from Swedish design firm People People. According to the website, the speaker was designed to blend a “high tech” look with more traditional interior elements — all while being as green as possible.
Much of the speaker’s environmental impact is reduced via clever shipping strategy. The unit arrives dissembled in a small flat package. The glass sheets that make up the speaker box are then ordered through a local glass repair shop close to the buyer. This reduces cost, shipping weight, and also supports local businesses. Consumers then just have to assemble the parts, IKEA-style at home.
