These Ultra-Thin Speakers Require Folding

If this is the kind of design that Royal College of Art student Hannes Harms is producing while he’s still in school, he has a long lustrous career ahead of him. This flat, foldable boombox is already something worth lusting over.

Made from 0.5mm thick laser-cut stainless steel and backed by an ultra-thin electrostatic flat speaker, this compact speaker can be easily shipped on the cheap. And when it arrives, the only assembly required would be some rudimentary origami along pre-scored lines to form the speaker’s stand. The results are all kinds of beautiful, but it’s too bad the necessity for wires would muck it all up.
