BAXX / Foldable Acoustic Amplifier


iF concept design award 2013

iF concept design award 2013

Put your favourite song on “Repeat” or share your entire music collection with your friends. Simply plug your Smartphone into BAXX and bring these sounds to life. The sound is created by the specially designed shape alone. It intensifies the sound and amplifies it throughout the whole room. BAXX works with any Smartphone without the need for any complicated technology. Thanks to its innovative material, BAXX can be folded flat, you can plug it in and out easily, and slip it easily into your bag. The milled lines open up the flexible plastic core so that you can fold the plate - as often as you want.

Even the news that our concept was chosen on the shortlist has totally pleased. But now to be among the 100 awardees is incredible. We are proud to have convinced the international jury of our concept.
