I saw an ad for these super sleek wireless speakers in 944 Magazine this week. 944 nicely describes the stylish speakers by saying, "The tech whizzes of wireless multimedia brand Parrot have forged an unlikely partnership with legendary architect Philippe Starck. Parrot's Zikmu In Color By Philippe Starck wireless speakers are sleek, colorful and ultramodern, seamlessly melding a fashion-forward aesthetic with high-tech functionality. The long, lean speakers can play crystal-clear audio from devices like the iPod and iPhone, and are enhanced with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities. They can also communicate with each other from anywhere in a room, delivering surround sound without the use of wires. In five eye-catching shades, such as Sorbet Lime and Dragon Red, the sculptural speakers also make a serious visual statement, accenting a room's existing color palette." Designer Phillipe Starck explains the benefits of this product in this way, "Zikmu is the simplest design possible at present. Our device is totally modern, not just because of all its technical capabilities, but also because it is as simple as possible. Its only purpose is to produce the maximum effect, with the most advanced and incredible technology, and the least amount of material. Now that is what I call magic."
