MUJI Cardboard Speakers Take Generic to New Heights

Generally speaking, when it comes to audio gear, most folks tend to adhere to a few high-end brand names. But if you feel like bucking the trend and getting putting some distance between yourself and the rest of the lemmings, you might check out these cardboard speakers from the Museum of Modern Art. Named for the Japanes phrase “Mujirushi Ryohin” (“no-brand goods”), the MUJI Speakers are an audible expression of your defiance against rabid consumerism. They also fold up for easy portability. Just $42 at the MoMA store. (Of course, if you’re really that conscientious, maybe you could resist running out to buy some new speakers in the first place.)
