Owners of mobile sound systems can vouch for the circumstantial advantages of having them at hand. This set of portable speakers by Paulo Encarnação is ideal for carrying around in a bag or stashing in the glove compartment of your car, ready to turn up the volume on a great song so that everyone can hear it.
The designer has conceived a pair of tiny nearly spherical amps that have wind-up cords for tangle-free storage. They can be nestled snugly into a capsule-shaped case for protection. The two devices are formed from an ultra glossy material with shiny metallic detailing. These match the highly reflective container for an alluring futuristic aesthetic. Inspired by the contoured cladding of space age robot design, these portable speakers by Paulo Encarnação are likely to look current for years to come.
