Scandinavian tech company Transparent Sound has produced a see-through speaker made from a single aluminum “uniframe” and tempered glass panels.
Transparent Sound’s product, aptly named the Small Transparent Speaker, is the result of stripping things back-to-basics and focusing on technological expertise. Its simplistic design provides an unobstructed way of having a home speaker that doesn’t take up too much visual space.
It is Bluetooth and Wi-Fi-equipped and has been designed to welcome new technological advancements, allowing for certain parts of the unit to be replaced instead of making way for a new speaker entirely. It also features True Wireless pairing, meaning it can be joined with another speaker for double the sound, and it can be combined with any existing Sonos speaker set up.
The Small Transparent Speaker comes in a larger size, too, which are both available in either black or white iterations. The smaller version is priced at $550 USD, while the larger iteration is priced at $1100 USD.
