In the name of fashion, Louis Vuitton doesn’t disappoint when it comes to gadgets. With several high-end audio products already under its belt, this portable speaker is a merry addition to your list of stylish gadgets.
The team at Louis Vuitton pairs superior sound quality with cutting-edge technology, turning a utilitarian item into a work of art. The design is inspired by the Toupie (‘Spinning Top’) handbag designed by Louis Vuitton’s Artistic Director of Women’s collections Nicolas Ghesquière. Just as the Toupie rewrote the rule book for evening bags, the Louis Vuitton Horizon Light Up speaker aims to reinvent the world of portable speakers.
Through its audacious and visionary design, the speaker is taken to a new level of desirability. When at home and not in use, it becomes an objet d’art, showcasing the craftmanship that is central to the House.
Only when the device is switched on does its purpose become obvious in an explosion of sound, light and movement. As the covered woofer vibrates like a heartbeat, a dynamic light-show synchronises to the beat with a colourful digital interpretation of Louis Vuitton’s iconic Monogram flower. The unconventional shape offers myriad acoustic benefits. When sitting on its dock, the sound is played at 360 degrees, but by placing the speaker on its side, music can be sent in a specific direction.
The Louis Vuitton Horizon Light Up speaker weighs approximately 1kg and measures a mere 18cm in diameter, it uses Bluetooth connectivity and is compatible with Apple AirPlay® 2, and Qplay via Wi-Fi.
