Red Dot: Best of the Best

Icon of sound

A high-quality speaker should feature components that are well matched to evoke an authentic world of sound. Ideally, this sound should invite listeners to leave their everyday life behind. The Glass Sound Speaker LSPX-S1 virtually stages the listening of music, evoking an experience that reaches all senses. Made of cylindrically shaped glass, it fascinates with its iconic appearance. It has been designed for sound enthusiasts who place them on a tabletop to enjoy its crystal clear, space-filling sound. A special aspect of this speaker is that it is enticingly illuminated and thus turns into a multi-sensual object while listening to music. It can be controlled via an easy connection to a smartphone, providing users with the freedom to create their own individual performance of illumination and sound. The audio is projected by the entire cylinder body, providing a very crisp sound with a perceived circumference of 360 degrees. The Glass Sound Speaker LSPX-S1 thus delivers a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere that soon draws in all listeners within a room. Thanks to its inspired design approach, it emerges as an icon of both sound and form – listening to music is redefined by a new dimension.

Statement by the jury

»The approach the Glass Sound Speaker LSPX-S1 takes to make music come alive and illuminate at the same time is impressive. This beautiful sound sculpture represents a successful symbiosis of outstanding appearance and high functionality. The design concept is highly convincing and has been perfectly implemented. This is the kind of speaker that music enthusiasts yearn to place on their living room or dinner table.«
