The People People Transparent Speaker offers a clear(er) choice for music and design lovers everywhere

Last week we were pleased to help bring a great new product to the Kickstarter community. The Transparent Speaker by Stockholm, Sweden based design firm, People People.

We met People People at CES 2012 almost a year ago. Like everyone else, we had seen the design all over the web a couple of weeks before, but there it was, live and in the flesh. It was freaking gorgeous!

Talking to Per Brickstad of People People, we totally got their take on consumer electronics- “Home audio components are not all that atttractive, don’t always sound that great, and are pretty much disposable.” We have to agree.

The Transparent Speaker is designed to fit in perfectly with any decoration by presenting the drivers in a simple, iconic manner that looks great, sounds great, and allows for wireless connectivity.

The simple, iconic design seems to have found a fan in Pop Music too! A couple of weeks ago, the speaker made an appearance in the new will.i.am and Britney Spears video for “Scream and Shout”. Pretty awesome placement if you ask us.

We look forward to bringing our Swedish friends to CES again next month and letting people get their hands and ears on the Transparent Speaker. For now, jump on over to Kickstarter and pledge to be among the first to get the Transparent Speaker when it becomes available!

Engadget – “…a potent sound-pusher, but also as a highlight of industrial design.”

Wired – “…perfect for someone who wants to add some boom to their room without clunky cubes dissing their design aesthetic.”

Cool Material – “…it just looks freakin’ sweet.”

psfk – “…effortlessly blends into any environment instead of sticking out against the decor.”

VentureBeat – “…beautifully designed and sounds great, but it’s also built to last more or less forever.”
