A collab between Amsterdam-based Leff and designer Piet Hein Eek, the cylindrical speaker connects to media devices via Bluetooth, USB or auxiliary input cable to provide high-quality audio in a relatively small package—it's just 2 inches in diameter. Rechargeable LiPo battery pumps out the music for up to 8 hours. Available in either brushed stainless steel or brass or copper-plated steel.
“We love clocks because they are functional and can be pieces of art at the same time,” says Arno Ruijzenaars, fo-founder of Leff Amsterdam with brother Dennis Ruijzenaars and designer Erwin Termaat. “As nobody really needs a clock these days,” he adds, ”it is a great challenge to develop clocks that people just like to have in their surroundings because of the design.” Leff Amsterdam has proved more than up to the task with its noteworthy series of design-centric desk and wall clocks along with offshoot audio and wristwatches.
Both in-house design talent and noted collaborators like designer Piet Hein Eek are responsible for the company's memorable offerings. Leff, from the Dutch ‘lef’ is derived from the Hebrew word for heart and certainly the partners put their all into developing products that stand the test of, well, time. “With every project,” Arno says, “our goal is to create a design classic.”
