The Stockholm-based audio brand has developed the Small Transparent Speaker so that many of its parts are replaceable and can be upgraded as technology advances.
Two winners will receive one speaker each.
As its name suggests, the speaker is transparent. It is contained within two tempered glass panels, secured together on an aluminium uni-frame.
The product's left/right audio outputs are located next to each other on the glass front. They have a diameter of 7.5 centimetres and are fixed to the clear body using contrasting black screws. Two visible wires connect the speakers to the base, which contains a Class D built-in amplifier with two 15 Watt outputs.
The brand has designed the components of the speaker so that new developments can be swapped or added in. According to Transparent Sound, this means that the Small Transparent Speaker can last forever.
Through its "sustainable closed-loop" design system, users are able to update their product by changing a small part, rather than the whole unit, and can still keep up with the latest technology.
"It's our belief that products and objects for the home should not feel outdated after just a year," stated the brand. "We want our products to get better with age, rather than become obsolete."
Every Small Transparent Speaker features high-quality signal processing. This feature aims create deliver clear audio through maintaining a balance between low, medium and high frequencies and therefore helping the user hear more details in the music or recording.
The product can be connected to devices through a Bluetooth connection. It can be paired with Amazon's Alexa Echo, or added to an existing Sonos setup. Transparent Sound designed the base compartment of the speaker to house the modules for Alexa's wireless connections, which can be replaced with the newest technology as it upgrades.
Founded by Per Brickstad and Martin Willers, Transparent Sound's name refers to the transparent panes on its products but also as an objective for an "honest, open and sustainable" business.
