Parrot Zikmu by Philippe Starck

Yesterday, I saw an elegant wireless ipod speaker at Lane Crawford’s Pacific Place home store for HK$13,000. And today, I google and find more information about the speaker.

function

  • tall, svelte speakers are designed to work in pairs over WiFi or bluetooth
  • 360° NXT surround sound
  • can play from music from a computer, or from iPods and iPhones by way of the dock up top

philosophy

  • “We were not aiming to create just another speaker. Our design focused more on making the air vibrate. There is actually a three-dimensional feel to this vibration, meaning that the air is palpable, almost humanlike in presence, like a fragrance”
  • “…as the look will go out of date as fast as the parts. The important thing is to give people something they can use, and continue to use.”
  • “…including a heavy duty carrying case that, as Starck joked, took more time to design than the speakers, and will make you look like a mafioso hitman.”

Zikmu is in my wishlist now! Money will out from my pocket!
