Niche speaker brand Moss knows it’s treading a well-worn path with its new Bluetooth speakers, but the Singapore-based studio has blended high fidelity with neat design and fantastic attention to detail that sets it apart from the rest. Set up by British audiophile and designer Nik Lee, Moss is devoted to a single product, a tiny cylindrical Bluetooth speaker that’s bedecked in fetching coloured stripes, giving a hint of Memphis-era style in a tiny package.
For just $99, the dolly mixture colours and no-nonsense polished acrylic housing create a speaker that’s simple to use, easy to carry and won’t clutter up the shelves with matte black mediocrity when not in use. The hand-polished acrylic also bulks up the sound and aficionados of the heyday of the Manchester music scene will find the colour names familiar.
