We first met the team behind Swedish synthesizer company, Teenage Engineering back in 2018. They create audio gear made for people who love sounds, music and design, and since the launch of their OP-1 synthesiser in 2010, we’ve been fans of their work.
Having bonded over vintage audio gear, we decided to collaborate on a pair of limited edition cages for their OD-11 wireless speakers, destined for Tom Dixon’s new Manzoni restaurant in Milan.
Teenage Engineering’s acclaimed products strike a balance between unconventional design and unrivalled functionality. Juxtaposing their modern technology with traditional saddle belt-making methods and hardware, we drew on a playful design informed by functional restraints; bridging both high design and subversive fantasy.
