Stockholm based Transparent is known for making simple and functional audio products in contrast to many other technology companies that can be perceived as complex and pretentious. Now the brand is adding another colour option to its transparent speaker collection, that literally camouflages into your home.
— Following the success of the Small Transparent Speaker last year, we wanted to build on this, while adhering to our brand’s mission of creating timeless and circular speakers. Matte black, an essential colour to any home, offers an understated yet expressive aesthetic which also encapsulated our ethos for simple yet functional design, comments Per Brickstad, co-founder and chief designer in a statement.
The matte black finish is added to the single aluminium uniframe encasing for the speakers and the transparent speaker’s previously red cables have been updated to uniformed black cables. Spec-wise, the speakers have gotten a new Digital Signal Processor (DSP) chip to create studio-level sound quality, as well ass true wireless pairing to stream music to multiple speakers simultaneously.
