Designers of electronics have gradually been doing away with all of the bells and whistles that make using such equipment so confusing. The Muji Bluetooth Speaker demonstrates this shift with wonderful clarity towards a purist form and a clutter-free system of controls.
The unusually soft-looking sound system is manufactured in white, takes the rational shape of a square and features lovely rounded corners. It's meant to be mounted on a wall just below eye level with a single cable dangling down from the bottom. This is where it connects to its electrical cord, but pull on it gently and it will power up the gadget. A remote control and a row of clearly marked buttons on the top of the Muji Bluetooth Speaker facilitate user-friendly interaction to complement its approachable appearance.
