Danish designer Arne Jacobsen first created the Cylinda in 1967, and mid-century barware has never looked better.

Music can't make much of an impact unless it can be heard, and tunes that are played like they're meant to sound—rich, deep, clean—can be a revelation. San Francisco–based product designer Joey Roth created these porcelain speakers with ceramic, cork, and Baltic birch, simple materials complemented with high quality electronic design that will bring out the sonic beauty in any album you put on. The speakers will hit stores in November, but you can pre-order now from Joey's site.
