When Philippe Starck designs anything — even a lowly iPod and iPhone dock — we take notice. Zikmu is another winner, a pair of wireless speakers the famed industrial designer created for Parrot. The 2.5-footers radiate sound from 360 degrees, giving you a bit more placement versatility.
These Bluetooth speaks still need to plug into an AC outlet, but the lack of connecting speaker cables is still a plus. They use Parrot's NXT tech, and instead of just isolated tweeters and woofers making all the sound, the whole speaker vibrates.
We especially like that floating illusion. Nice one, Phillipe. Look for the Parrot by Philippe Starck Zikmu speakers next Spring for $1500.
