Tombox is a line of portable speakers produced in Germany, and their retro looks are not the result of imitative design; each speaker is an actual loudspeaker of yore, cleaned up and repurposed by a duo known only as Laudahn and Holldobler.
We reuse discarded loudspeakers and give them a second chance as portable amplifiers. The built-in, rechargable battery will keep the system running for a period of up to two weeks (depending on volume). [Each] comes with a charging device, a 3.5mm cable and plug, suitable for laptops, mp3 players and much more.
The Tomboxes exhibiting some interesting design choices. I'm digging the blatancy of the handles and the isolated boldness of the old-school silver volume knobs. The backsides of each unit have a rather unusual system of metal knobs to create a serpentine cable wrap. And the larger versions, which lack handles but sit on casters, are meant to be towed via dog leash. As quirky as they are, the Tomboxes pull off that hard-to-nail combination of retro, minimal, stylish, and practical.
