Taking inspiration from the 1960s radical design movement, the project attempts to blur the boundaries between art and design and encourages audacious investigations of color, texture, and form. The five potential combinations are reminiscent of a chess game, thus earning the name Scacco Matto, which translates to checkmate in Italian.
The Bluetooth speaker/Lamp is composed of three Wireless components held together by magnets to encourage users to interact with them, changing their appearance and functionality. The three components can be simultaneously recharged one on top of the other.
