Acoustable – The coffee table audiophiles would love to gather around!
While most of the coffee tables are just meant to harmonize the mood and overall decor of your living room, there are a few that tend to changes the notion. Enter the Acoustable, a high-tech coffee table with built-in sound system from Belgian designers Jérôme Spriet and Wolfgang Bregentzer. Born out of a reflection on music and ways of listening to it, the Acoustable combines a coffee table and sound system into one unit. The coffee table offers an easy way to integrate music more seamlessly into daily life. Positioned between the table’s base and top surface is the sound system that includes Teac speakers, woofer and stereo amplifier with USB and iPod connection ports. There are USB adaptors within the table that can be extended to hook into PCs, iPods and phones.
If you look at the exterior of the table, it simply looks like yet another gorgeous coffee table, as no technical components are visible. A built-in pocket can be used to house the remote and the player. Acoustable is made from a polymer and mineral blend that combines the advantages of stone and plastic. If you are interested in buying one, you will have to get in touch with the designers, as there is no info on the website if they are selling the thing.
