H&D Hotlist #042: New design products, furniture and home accessories

Slender Figure

Among Sony’s Life Space UX series of products blurring the division between technology and interior design, the Glass Sound Speaker appears to be a simple cylindrical lamp, but it is actually a wireless Bluetooth speaker. The device flickers to a glow when it is turned on, and slowly fades out when the power goes off. The lightweight, battery-operated speaker offers up to four hours of playback and can be controlled via the Sony Songpal app.

The Glass Sound Speaker LSPX-S1 retails for $1,199 at all major retailers.
