Designer Philippe Starck has put his stamp on a home sound system designed specifically for iPod, iPhone and other digital audio sources . The Parrot speaker system features a pair of 2.5-foot tall black columns each reminiscent of the business-end of a trumpet.
We were not aiming to create just another speaker,” says Starck. “Our design focused more on making the air vibrate. There is actually a three-dimensional feel to this vibration, meaning that the air is palpable, almost humanlike in presence, like a fragrance.”
If you live in Los Angeles you can buy the Parrot speakers at Fred Segal on Melrose Avenue.
Strack is a design genius and just like him I believe that today, products are "stupidly complicated, just to show the intelligence of the people who do it, but they don't show the intelligence of people who design it, they show the stupidity of people of design it". Simplicity is always the way to go.
