The Berlin Boombox is designed by Berlin-based designer & illustrator Axel Pfaender. He decided it's time for a cool and fun MP3 soundsystem ... something you want to show off, like back in the days.
It's a contemporary take on the design of oldschool boomboxes. The minimalist graphic art in black and white makes the Berlin Boombox a real eye-catcher.
The Berlin Boombox is made from heavy corrugated cardboard, features a strong carrying handle and a single big knob for power and volume.
The Berlin Boombox comes as a kit consisting of a die-cut cardboard structure and all electronic parts. Assembly is easy, glue-free, tool-free and takes only a couple of minutes.
Don't worry, no geek knowledge necessary.

Axel Pfaender is a Berlin-based illustrator and DJ. With the Berlin Boombox he decided to combine his his two passions – music and design. He started a Kickstarter project to get the necessary funds to bring the Berlin Boombox to the market.
The Kickstarter project was very successful, reaching $20,000 after 30 days. But even more important than the money: the tons of positive feedback, retailer request and love from design blogs, gadget blogs, magazines, and radio stations.
