There is nothing more elegant or sophisticated than the curvaceous shape of a wine bottle, which is why the SoundBox iPad dock station mimics that form.

Created by Italy-based designer Emanuele Canova, the SoundBox iPad dock station is made to blend into the home rather than stick out like a sore thumb. The speakers don't just focus on good looks, though. They provide the iPad with a unique charging station while also offering great sound quality for users to listen to music or videos. Nevertheless, its true crowning feature is quite undeniably its sculptural presence.

Implications - Budget-crunched consumers are increasingly opting for functional home accessories that double as art. Product designers can reach this ever-growing market by creating beautiful, sculptural objects that serve a purpose in the home. Stats for Wine Bottle Speakers Trending: Older & Warm
