In concept, the firm ships the speaker in a small, flat package that is assembled at home "IKEA style." The glass components will be ordered through a local glass repair shop closest to the customer. "In that way the speaker reduces shipping with up to 90%, and supports local handicraft in one go. A very economical and ecological solution," says People People. Furthermore, components that break first, in this case the rubber ring and speaker cone, can easily be replaced, ultimately reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.
Speaker is not available for purchase yet, but People People welcomes you to drop a line if you'd like to be kept up to date on its development.
