Passively amplified speakers come in all shapes and sizes, but industrial designer Steffen Kehrle’s installation is notable not only for its looks, but for its source of sound. While most passive speakers amplify the sound from a mobile device, Steffen’s Speaker consists of five cones that boost the sound from headphones.
Steffen made Speaker for headphone maker Master & Dynamic. It was featured at Wallpaper* Magazine’s Handmade exhibit and at the Salone del Mobile furniture fair.
It’s a fun concept, and the speakers look nice. It’s a shame we don’t get to hear if they’re any good.
