Audiomatryoshka Speakers Don’T Wobble, Won’T Fall Down

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  February 3, 2009


The word Matryoshka isn’t exactly a part of the English vernacular, but once you realize that it’s really just the Russian name for those little nesting dolls your grandmother has sitting on her mantle, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.

This concept for a set of speakers the designer calls “Audiomatryoshka” is definitely bold, if not a little over-the-top for most decorating styles. From where I’m sitting, the magenta-colored “dolls” could also pass for psychedelic pink penguins or maybe some electric purple bowling pins – perfect for a trippy dream sequence out of The Big Lebowski.

Russian designer Alex Mamontoff created these speakers as his way of modernizing the classic art form and making it more relevant to today’s audience. But the fact that you can’t open them up and put one inside the other sort of defeats the purpose, IMHO.

The artist has no plans at this point to manufacture these speakers at this point, but Mamontoff has actually made a working model of the speakers using a rapid prototyping system. In the mean time, if you want some penguin-shaped speakers, you might have to settle for these.
