For true lovers of all things analog, the cardboard ‘Berlin Boombox’ provides a good way to stay in the past, but ahead of the curve. The piece is a screen-printed stereo that is made of cardboard and actually features a stereo amplifier. Those who first see this product will wave it off as a cool home decor piece, but it can actually play music too.
The boombox was designed by Axel Pfaender and has already surpassed its goal of a $14,000 pledge on Kickstarter.com. The design of this stereo is exactly what old school music fanatics miss, yet presents itself as a very modern concept. Ultimately, it provides a healthy dose of nostalgic appeal with a good forward-thinking punch.
