The aesthetics of everyday objects can be a tricky one to get right, particularly when those objects have technical specifications that impact their overall design.
One such product is Luciano, a tabletop Bluetooth speaker designed by Paolo Cappello. The speaker combines advanced sound technology and high end components in a carefully crafted handmade ceramic form. I love how the curvaceous, minimal aesthetics feel so naturally organic - rather than disguise the process of amplification like so many other audio products available, they seem to enhance it, without even hearing anything from them.
Unfortunately, I suspect that with the considerably high-end price tag, I won’t be hearing its audio qualities anytime soon, but for now I’ll settle with the fact that the Luciano truly looks how I imagine it to sound - beautifully natural - I’d certainly have this on my tabletop any day.
