Funky Growin' Up speakers are inspired by trees

Most speakers still come in boring rectangular boxes, so it's refreshing to see designs that break the mold. Designer Marcos Ignacio Madia has given us few details about how the Growin' Up speakers work, but they look like a modular design with woofer, midrange, and tweeter modules that you can stack and add to as your needs and budget grow. You can even experiment with different dispersion patterns, by either turning all of the drivers to the front, or rotating some to create a more omnidirectional sound. What's not clear is whether the multi-driver unit in the gallery is a center channel or a surround speaker.

Clearly, the Growin' Up concept needs more development, but I think the funky look could work well in a contemporary home.
