At the design tradeshow Maison & Objet in Paris last week, tech company La Boite Concept debuted their latest design, The Cube, a coffee table cum hi-fi speaker.
It’s the latest addition to their range of wireless Hi-Fi speakers. The Cube Thruster Edition is a speaker which allows you to wirelessly connect all your music players, whether that be a laptops, tablets, smartphones, turntables or TVs.
The compact and sleek design belie the audio quality that both the Thruster and it’s sister speaker the LD offer, with a frontal central woofer equipped with a double-bass reflex.
The exclusive “Wide Stereo Sound" system means an effective enhancement of stereo effect and a wider, clear surrounding sound wherever you are located into your room.
Traditional loudspeakers have an ideal stereo field that is restricted both in horizontal and in vertical ways. This restriction of stereo effect is progressively increased when people are getting closer of the loudspeakers, up to the point that it completely disappears when you stay in front or right above them. This sound system allows optimum listening while you are sitting or standing close to the speakers and even when you are moving through your room. Its active and passive crossover systems are also a part of the technical design which allows high-fidelity to remain clear at a low volume of sound when you are alone or louder, with many people, when you have a party as well.
So that's the technical part out of the way what about the aesthetics? What so many speaker systems lack is the ability to blend into your furniture or at the least remain inoffensive. La Boite Concept’s design acts a transitional piece, providing a high-quality sound system with the function and appearance of a side or coffee table. The table comes with a high quality black glass top panel with an extra shelf underneath, and is available in black mat for the Thruster edition, or solid-oak tree, dark grey lacquer and light mat grey in the LD version.
And just in case you are worried about putting things on top of what is just basically a giant speaker it has been fitted with an anti vibration system too.
