The Drop the Beat speaker may have been inspired by drops of water, but it happens to resemble a penant light more than anything. Hung from the ceiling, the slim body does take some notes from the shape of a water droplet. For instance, the base has a triangular shape, quite like the initial rise of a body of water when a drop descends into it.
Designed by Vincent Säll, the Drop the Beat speaker is nevertheless more edgy and contemporary than naturalistic. Available in a slew of vibrant colors, it would suit modern homes and offices while complementing computers perfectly. With a touch of Scandinavian minimalism, the Drop the Beat speaker isn't immediately recognizable as a speaker.
