Embodying the tenets of good design in a way that would make Rams pretty happy, the Braun Audio 07 from Abdelrahman Shaapan does the job of playing music and looking minimal while it does. The Braun Audio 07 is a simple Spotify-playing machine with a bare-basics aesthetic and interface… In short, it’s sensible. It does what you want it to do, without a fuss, letting you navigate Spotify using a touchscreen display, while a volume knob that sits on the salt-pepper weave speaker-grill lets you adjust how loud your music is.
The speaker can be hung on a wall or placed on a surface like a desk or mantelpiece. Wire-routing pathways let you connect the Braun Audio 07 to a power source, and it seems like a secondary port lets you plug and connect multiple Audio 07s to create a powerful stereo setup.
