Yeah, just drop me in the cargo hold of the next long-haul COSCO freighter out of Elizabeth, NJ. Bound for anywhere, I don't care. So long as my ventilation tube remains open and my supply of Daft Punk, Neil Young and Lindstr√łm doesn't run out.


The KT's 15 speakers are entwined in an elaborate installation of CNC-cut cardboard, providing a "spatial sensation that is in-between the notion of the concert hall and the iPod headphone." Designed by MAT Studio and Elastik, It was the winner of Dezeen's contest for the best conversion of a shipping container, and was on display for a few thousand lucky listeners at Tokyo Designers Week recently.
