Swiss design studio BERNHARD | BURKARD – founded in 2010 by Fabian Bernhard and Thomas Burkard – designed ‘Ballo‘, a unique speaker for Hong Kong based brand OYO – Objects You Obsess. The speaker‘s shape is a perfect sphere with no actual stand. The BALLO speaker lays, rolls or hangs for a 360 degree music experience. The design follows principles of minimalistic design. A colorful belt fuses two hemispheres. It protects the speaker and increases the bass tones when lying on a surface.
The mono-speaker comes with a built-in rechargeable Lithium battery and is compatible with most audio devices. The 3.5mm jack is a regular plug for headphones. When pluged-in, the speaker turns on automatically. For stereo sound two BALLO speakers can be connected with a stereo wire.
