We can’t decide if the Museum Speaker looks more like it was created for outer space than for a concert hall. This futuristic piece of audio art was actually built exclusively for the Guggenheim Museum, and it features solid Pennsylvania ash wood that’s thermally treated via a process called torrefaction that makes it both darker and better for sound. The intricate speaker grille and rear panel were made out of sheets of phenolic resin, which also contributes to the peerless sound quality. In terms of actual sound, the speakers are professional grade, using proprietary Oswald Mill’s tech, and they emit concert-level sound in a truly compact package.
