Light Speaker — A portable sound and light experience

The Light Speaker is a portable Bluetooth speaker inspired by a traditional lantern and has a simple and functional form. The light feels like a real flame, glowing together with your music, and certainly adds that cosy feel if you are gathered around a campfire. Let’s face it, people have gathered around campfires since the beginning of time. Even now, the soft glowing warmth of campfires, fireplaces and open candles still bring us together and make us feel good.

The Light Speaker has a big, open, omnidirectional sound delivering rich bass, stable mid-tones and crisp high notes. The solid borosilicate glass cylinder creates a sealed valve for the passive 3” woofer sitting in the bottom. The dome-shaped enclosure on the top holds a powerful 2.5” full-range driver sending out 360 degrees sound.

The Light Speaker features “Transparent sound” meaning it’s tuned to channel the true intention of the artist. It gives natural and immersive sound typically not found in portable speakers. Plus the speaker only weighs 0.6 kg (1.3 lb) and comes with an elegant handle accessory. In true Swedish tradition, Transparent Design even include an Ikea-style wrench for attaching the handle to the Light Speaker to make you feel that bit more manly.

Head to Transparent Design’s Kickstarter page to purchase one for yourself for $215.
