Miniforms Cabinet and Desk with Integrated Speakers

Designer Paolo Cappello must love the era when home audio and furniture shared a closer relationship (remember your parent's hi-fi cabinet systems?). Revealed at the Milan Salone Satellite 2011, his TOROTOTELA micro desk and the CAIXA media cabinet both offer integrated audio speakers...


The Miniform Caixa was designed to be a stylish, large home entertainment hub, offering hookups for your, computer, MP3 player and a HDTV to a pair of high quality speakers and amp. Available in a lacquered white, black, or red with options for same or contrasting colours inside, we're surprised the likes of IKEA haven't considered following suit with a mass consumer media cabinet in mind. We guess that's what IKEAhackers is for.

The CAIXA's smaller sibling is the Torototela, a pint-sized oak desk with a modest footprint, perfect for laptop users. Like the CAIXA, built-in speakers provide additional audio output, optimizing utility in a tiny form factor.
