The centuries-old tradition of coiling and carving bamboo is unique to Vietnam . Craftsmen shape the material by hand to form shells. Multiple layers of varnish are then applied to create a natural finish. The resulting design merges traditional manufacturing techniques with modern technology-the spherical shell lets sound resonate acoustically, a Bluetooth connection offers flexibility, while the integrated potentiometer allows precise volume control. Related: Beautiful Speakers Made from Sustainable Bamboo and Leather The speakers are made by Bruno Chandon, an engineer who loves innovation and sustainability. He received a chance to combine these two interests when he met Chung, a rural craftsman skilled in working with bamboo. With the help of French product designer Marie Hautecoeur, he designed this remarkable speaker, which he then equipped with the best possible drivers, amps, and other components. + Hazang Bamboo Bluetooth Speakers + Hazang Kickstarter
