Another First for The Australian Hi Fi & AV Show
Boe Vintage Bluetooth Speakers make the best of old and new. By combining 21st century technology and mid-century style we are producing desirable products that are friendly to the environment. All of our bluetooth speakers utilise re-purposed valve and transistor radio cases and accessories, seamlessly merged with new integrated circuitry to create a product that has all of the benefits of a new bluetooth speaker, without any unnecessary manufacturing.
With our Vintage Bluetooth Speakers we focused on making the most from the least. Understanding that there is a market from bluetooth speakers, we worked to create a unique solution with the minimum environmental impact. We avoided making new enclosures, controls and speakers, by re-using obsolete radio components (simultaneously keeping these out of the waste stream). We then eliminated producing a power supply by specifying a power cable that will plug into any phone charger. Finally, we eliminated the battery, since our power cable also engages with phone battery-banks, maximising mobility without producing unnecessary batteries.
The Vintage Bluetooth Speaker shows that contemporary functionality does not need to come with a hefty environmental price-tag. Through clever re-use of existing materials, a functional, beautiful, cost competitive product can be developed with a substantially smaller environmental impact than traditional new products. Our design practice is focused on blurring the lines between new and old by merging contemporary technology with vintage materials.
