You don't usually see the cones and inner wires of amplifiers since they're typically concealed within the bulky rectangular cover of most sound systems. The Soyuz Speaker is different, shedding much of this excess material and weight in order to deliver practicality.

Despite its slightly more raw appearance, Olavo Pena Monken's design is quite attractive. He's made the drums of the pair of speakers and the subwoofer bright red to become focal points. The cords have been sheathed in red tubing as well, for a clean and decluttered arrangement. The Soyuz Speaker is framed openly by strips of metal, giving the user plenty of places to clutch the iPhone dock and providing an intriguing industrial aesthetic.
