Transparent’s ‘Light Speaker’ Is A Hi-Fi Audio Device Disguised As A Lamp

We’ve seen our fair share of outdoor-inspired lamps over the years, but it’s safe to say that a recent union of technology and age-old design has helped to rekindle our interest. Not only does Transparent’s aptly-named “Light Speaker” boast a hearty helping of each aforementioned trait, but it’s also been outfitted with a great-sounding audio system to boot.

The Transparent Design Light Speaker adopts a handful of aesthetic traits from its camp-savvy predecessor, including a compact, domed design, translucent body, and circular “burner.” However, users will be intrigued to hear that the omittance of an actual flame doesn’t leave this lamp without its most vital trait. Instead, the team at Transparent has spent countless hours studying the temperature, movement, and brightness of traditional lanterns, recreating their unique illumination within the Light’s transparent, cylindrical body. Each example boasts a borosilicate glass that allows viewers to enjoy various settings and styles of light, including coal-like embers, white reading, or flickering candlelight — all of which react to the music that’s being played through the device’s internal speaker system. The best part? An IPX2 weather rating ensures that you’ll actually be able to utilize the Light Speaker while you’re huddled around the campfire; something that many thoughtfully-designed speakers won’t boast. Head to Transparent Design’s Kickstarter to snag one of your own for $215.
