verona-based designer paolo cappello has created ‘caruso’, a bluetooth music cabinet for the italian company miniforms. the trumpet-shaped speaker references the gramophones that once played scratchy 78’s, taking them to their digital-age version.

 

‘I wanted to design something that gives music back its shape, even now in the digital age. something with a strong iconic and recognizable appeal. a product that everybody immediately can understand as a cabinet that plays music without even listening to music.’ cappello says.
