Cotodama was first introduced to the public in 2016 with a concept that was then overlooked and treated as another gadget brand. Since, the Japanese brand has evolved, proved critics wrong and gained in notoriety.
After releasing last year, a new version of their iconic Lyric Speaker Canvas, Cotodama launched yet a new iteration. This time, with Saint Laurent. The French house had already unveiled, earlier this year, another hi-fi collaboration with Danish brand Bang & Olufsen.
Design wise, the simple, minimalistic look of the speaker echoes the brands obsession with simplicity. While the backboard, stamped with the Saint Laurent logo, serves as a reminder for how sleek your musical tastes are, the front one displays lyrics for more than 2 million songs. The brand itself describes their design as “providing constant inspiration and motivation through the power of words.”
The €2400 collaboration speaker is a chunk more expensive than the regular one (about 700€). It is available at Saint Laurent Rive Droite in Paris and Saint Laurent Malibu , in Los Angeles.
