tap and shake the beoplay P2 speaker to control music on the go

created by danish designer cecilie manz, the beoplay ‘P2’ is the smallest and most intelligent member of the B&O PLAY family of wireless bluetooth speakers. with a button-less design, users can double tap its anodized aluminum grille to play or pause music, and shake it to skip tracks. without the need for buttons, the speaker is shaped like a small, smooth and rounded pebble that features a defined rim to separate the metal top from the soft polymer base, and a leather strap for extra portability.
