Wireless Speaker or Art Piece?

Wireless Speaker or Art Piece?

pandoretta° is the newest wireless sound system from Austrian tech brand Poet Audio and we love its unique look. The piece of tech resembles an art piece more than it does a speaker—especially when displayed on one of their wood bases. The 360-degree system promises to be the finest in the world, with seven speakers and a 170-watt amplifier that delivers high-end sound streamed from your smartphone and computer.

Developed in Graz, Austria and designed by Thomas Feichtner, pandoretta° (€3,490; $3,949) features a unique aesthetic that looks both retro and futuristic. The exterior case is made from brushed stainless steel with circular cut-outs, while wood chambers house the wiring inside. Offering lossless aptX apt-X Bluetooth technology, the gadget works with Apple Airplay and has two hidden analogical inputs that allow you to hook it up directly to a TV.

The optional pedestal is available in solid oak (€1,990; $2,252) and nut (€2820; $3191).
