Speakerbuddies: A Mix Between Sculpture and Speaker

Speakerbuddies: A Mix Between Sculpture and Speaker

British designer Alex Underwood exhibited an interesting looking series of speaker that he aptly named Speaker Buddies as part of the 100% Design London fair. The speakers look like a sculpture of a child, with the speaker as its head. Looks like something out of modern art. The speakers are designed to work in pairs.

The speakers themselves are made out of polystyrene and are lightweight, which contrasts nicely with the way they look. Underwood has chosen to integrate polystyrene because it's often a not highly regarded material. If these speakers ever see production, our guess is that they won't be made out of it.
