Korean designer Jarim Koo has created a new portable speaker that is functional and fruity. Inspired by the way we interact with bananas, Koo's creation takes the shape of a modern fruit.

The 'Banano' portable speaker was designed to give consumers an experience that proceeds basic audio benefits. It was purposely built to be a contemporary piece of interactive technology, which Jarim Koo uses to question whether the connections made in our brains as a result of peeling a banana would translate into such an object and provide consumers with a completely different set of stimuli.

This innovative speaker features a sleek banana-like design with a peel-ready panel that exposes or conceals the speaker. By minimizing less necessary functions and buttons, Koo designed a product that is as simple as possible with the feeling of a uni-body.
