verona-born industrial designer paolo cappello has developed ‘torototela’ and ‘caixa’,
integrated speaker-furniture systems for italian company miniforms. the smaller of the two desks,
‘torototela’ measures just 50 cm (20 in) wide and is meant to be a work surface for laptops or ipads in small,
urban interiors. the station is compatible with any audio source that has an output jack.
