Berlin Boombox DIY Cardboard Smartphone Speaker in Lemon

Looking for a gift which keeps on giving? Look no further than the fabulous Berlin Boombox! This modern-day, cardboard ghetto blaster comes flat-packed for easy and glue-free self-assembly. Follow the diagram, slide in the speakers, connect up the wires, slot the components together, add the batteries - this really is the perfect crafty present for kids, teens and anyone who loves the satisfaction of putting things together and see how they work (not to mention, it'll keep them occupied for half an hour on Christmas morning!) And when they're done, they've got a funky, retro-style speaker into which they can slot their phone or other mp3 or bluetooth device into the 'tape deck' space and connect for hours of portable, quality music-playing. This makes a fantastic gift for her or him and even the coolest kids on the block!

Not only does the Berlin Boombox Mobile Smart Phone Speaker in Lemon look flipping marvellous, like something that's stepped right out of the 1980's, but it is also the most eco-friendly earth-loving stereo speaker in existence! That's quite a claim! And something that we at Cuckooland want to be a part of! Why is it so green, I hear you ask? The Berlin Boombox, designed by Berlin-based designer Axel Pfaender, is made of recycled corrugated cardboard and can itself be recycled. It only contains a teeny weeny portion of plastic and electronic waste. There is also great care to avoid unnecessary shrink-wrapping, plastic materials and the like. Let's not forgot though that this is an audio product and whilst we are over the moon that it is such an environmentally friendly product, we also want it to deliver on quality and sound. And boy, it really really does! You will find it hard to believe that this little monster is constructed out of cardboard. The Berlin Boombox comes in a flat packed DIY kit which is super easy to put together; all the necessary components are included so you don't need to worry one bit. It features a beautiful aluminum knob for the fancy electronic stuff like power and volume control. What's also pretty cool is that the Berlin Boombox connects to any smartphone or even other audio devices, either via an audio cable or via Bluetooth. All design, screen-printing and production of the cardboard case is done locally in Berlin, so this is truly a German engineered and produced product. One that we love! Oh and did we mention its super light to carry around. The most Unique Gift of the year surely!

How to make the Berlin Boombox
Designed in Germany.

Brand: Berlin Boombox. Designed and Made in Berlin, Germany.

When you ask Berlin-based Axel Pfaender (inventor and designer of the Berlin Boombox) what his passions are, he would say art and music. He is both a talented illustrator and a keen DJ. The invention of the Berlin Boombox combines two of Axel's passions – music and design. His illustration is inspired by architecture, vintage industrial design, Memphis graphics, 8-bit computer games and Japanese Anime. Axel came up with the idea to create a mobile speaker inspired by the old school ghetto-blasters of the 1980s.

In 2012, Axel started a Kickstarter project to get the necessary funds to bring the Berlin Boombox to the market. With an overwhelming response to his ingenuous product, Axel was able to get his clever invention made. With every element of the product's creation being completed locally in Pfaender's home town of Berlin, (design, screen-printing and production of the cardboard case, packaging and logistics), the Berlin Boombox can certainly claim that name! Jumping aboard the German train (so to speak), we are very excited by our new European collaboration.
