TRANSLATION: (from) The Revue of Home Theater Sound - "That is
beautiful to hear".. It was under this slogan that presents
itself evocatively a young company called Bouldeson. As its name
clearly indicates, this is the spherical shape that caught the
attention of designer Matthieu Couturier. In some ways, these are
reminiscent the Grundigs of the 70s. The emphasis is placed on
the custom-made (finish, appearance, sculpture) but the small
two-way pictured already offers a real potential in terms of
fusion and liveliness. Another feature of the brand, the
manufacture of boxes, always spherical, but translucent,
allowing light to shine from within, creating, in addition to an
acoustic function, a light source of very friendly atmosphere
and color of your choice.

this idea. It is also the form that attracted Matthieu Couturier,
young French designer of Hi-Fi speakers.
