Lofree Poison speaker merges modern audio with vintage aesthetics

Article taken from Design Boom


From the company who brought us the retro-modern typewriter in early 2017, Lofree again merges nostalgic design with advanced technology, presenting the ‘poison’ speaker. it enhances a 10W dynamic driver that delivers mid and trebles from the front, and bass from the rear. as you can imagine from this vintage set, the speaker functions through radio channel surfing, but can also work with an AUX connection and wirelessly through bluetooth.

Even with its powerful and high-quality audio capabilities, as well as its range of technological advancements, the Lofree ‘poison’ speaker is a compact unit that is portable. its vintage aesthetics follow a streamlined body, which features a minimal amount of buttons (four) and a single dial on its top. available in venetian red, pure white, olive green or turquoise blue, this curved form is complemented with a metal grille, leather strap, and metal strap holders.
