Spiraling Wood Speakers

The UZU Series Speaker has a Zen-Like Presence

— May 28, 2011 — Art & Design
Add some Zen elements into your home with the UZU Series Speaker. This simple and serene audio enhancer has an organic presence that will really bring a touch of the outdoors and a sense of subtle spirituality into your home.

Brought to you by Team Tokushima, the UZU Series Speaker seems to take a page out of Apple's design book. Instead of flash and flair, these speakers are beautiful and calm. The spiraling lines in its design that remind me of a Zen garden actually conceal a numerical control router; the design is both practical and attractive.

Available in a light and dark wood finish, the UZU Series Speaker can be hung on the wall or rested on a table.
