MUON, Giant Speakers by Ross Lovegrove


For serious audiophiles, great speakers are a necessity. For serious lovers of modern design, sophisticated style matters just as much. Rarely have the two needs come together in such size and shine as in KEF's MUON loudspeakers.

Music lovers know KEF as the British manufacturer of top-quality speakers, and they're chomping at the bit to at least get a listen to the 7 foot tall, four-way speaker system. For design snobs the allure is MUON's looks and rare pedigree. Made of high-shine aluminum, vacuum molded into deep curves, MUON was created by modern industrial design icon Ross Lovegrove. 

Only 100 pairs of these speakers will be made, and with each pair valued at $140,000, every lover of sound and design can't possibly own them. Assuming they fall into one of these categories: Esquire Magazine guests, high-profile philanthropic donor, celebrity or other VIP though, they may get a chance to sneak a peak through November. One pair will be displayed in Esquire Magazine's project bachelor pad, Esquire North: The New View, a triplex penthouse apartment in NYC's Central Park North.
