COPENHAGEN, DENMARK Vifa’s Helsinki speaker offers sound on the go or to stay and is our latest Vanichi Editor’s Pick. Sometimes big things come in small packages. Vifa’s Helsinki speaker offers sound on the go or in one place. Portable speakers are nothing new but rarely has a portable speaker been crafted with such texture in mind. The Helsinki is so well-crafted, a quick glance might make you mistake it for a bag. That makes us do a happy dance, so the Helsinki is our latest Vanichi Editor’s Pick. The Helsinki is an exercise of Nordic aesthetic and organic details. These specifics include: A special-designed textile cover from Kvadrat that lets sound pass perfectly through its woollen threads. Furthermore, the fabric is water-repellent hence assuring both indoor- and outdoor use. A leather strap from swedish leather manufacturer Tärnsjö Garveri that is sold separately. A solid aluminum frame, molded in one piece in order to avoid assembly marks or frail spots. Helsinki is available in Willow Green, Misty Blue, Dusty Rose and Sandstone Grey. Starting at €399/US $421. Leather strap available separately.
