Victor Johansson has designed this amazing ceramic smartphone speaker that stylishly combines practicality and design. The designer said that the idea came from a key bowl – a place to keep your keys when you get home, so that you don’t have to look for them on your way out. The only difference is that this is a place to keep your smartphone, not your keys.
The use of the ceramic speaker is the result of another great idea. The NFC pads under the surface detect where the phone is placed exactly. There are three different areas where you can place it, and the pads trigger the action your chosen position represents.
This way you can choose between Play, Pause and Radio, simply placing your smartphone on the part of the surface that triggers the desired action. The moment the placement is detected you will see a clear text indicator in the ring around the placing area.
The way to pair this ceramic smartphone speaker to your phone is through a simple Bluetooth connection. There are no double controls or various steps in connection. Just pair and enjoy your favorite music.
The walls of the ‘bowl’ are made of glazed ceramic and the placing platform is made of white oak surrounded by a fabric ring that houses the action indicators.
This product is beautifully designed, practical, easy to use and still provides room for improvements including wireless charging of the phone used, or remote control for full practicality. [via] watch video below
