Decorating with music: the best stereo systems for the home

|

Music is one form of art that all of us are close to and live with on a daily basis. It accompanies us through different moments of our life: from the speakers, the soundtrack of our day spreads through the air. For example, is there a certain song to which you are particularly attracted, which reminds you of something special? For me, yes! 

There is no person who in some way is not in tune with music.

In the world of project design, music has its own place, the special discipline of sound design

Designing sound also includes choosing music that is able to adapt and enhance the environment or occasion in which they are used.
In short, be careful: just think using sounds incorrectly in certain environments could completely change the mood. That’s why I recommend to always have a good selection of music at home. You choose the right genre of music for you and as far as home stereo systems are concerned, I will give you a hand.

Here are the best stereo systems that embrace all the concepts of music and design, those that combine high quality sound with great aesthetic appeal. Let’s play!

Serpentine Stereo by Osloform

Osloform is a company of young designers based in Oslo, Norway. They have created a stereo system with an eye towards the vintage-contemporary trends. 

It’s made of flexible wood fibres with brass effects on a stone effect backing. It’s a handmade limited edition. Basically a collectors piece.

Caruso by Minforms, designed by Paolo Cappello

A piece defined as multisensory. A sideboard (with all the usual functions of a sideboard) which connects with your smartphone, allowing us to listen to the hits of the moment. Right now, I can’t get Ritmo by The Black Eyed Peas and J Balvin out of my head. The design is both nostalgic and avantguard. Top marks.

BeoSound 2 by Bang & Olufsen

A wireless speaker, with an extremely contemporary shape and use of material. It also has Google assistant integrated within and so you can ask to skip the song if you don’t particularly like it. If I hear the song “Baby Shark” again, I’ll go mad!
It’s spectacular and minimal, it hasn’t missed a thing.

Coulisse by Filippo Protasoni for Clique

As Pupo (an Italian singer) once sang, Su di noi nemmeno una nuvola (above us, no clouds), then suddenly in the clouds above us his voice resounds: a suspended bluetooth speaker made of Carrara marble and lycra. The touch of blue adds an extreme chromatic note to a very classic material of design. For the chic and elegant.

Sound Tree by Elipson

If you can’t help exaggerating or you are looking for something really over the top, I think that nothing beats this system. Yes, it has risen to the top to decorate an entire ceiling of a house or perhaps best suited to a restaurant (maybe at my home I wouldn’t venture this far). 

For those who are theatrical and like a spectacle.

Planet di Elipson

Versatile table or floor versions, and of course from Elipson always a sphere element and definitely more placeable in the home. More than beautiful!

Osound by Digital Habits

A wall mounted sound system, with a design inspired by the dawn. Thanks to Bluetooth technology, it can play any music that we desire and we can also control: next/previous, play/pause and adjust the volume with a simple movement from our hand. Poetic.
I confess, it’s my favourite!

Vitruvio by Soriano Blanco

A speaker characterised by pure, geometric shapes. A suspended sphere which is connected to the external wooden structure by rubber ties. It has a nordic flavor, minimal esthetics and includes Bluetooth technology. But that’s not all, thanks to the vibrations generated by sound, the sphere moves to the rhythm, thus giving us the ‘movement of sound’.
