Design by Young-se Kim
USA TODAY said, “the stylish tilt of the cube-shaped speakers will add visual interest to your decor.”
Industrial design of Cubik was done by Innodesign, a Palo Alto based design firm led by Young-se Kim. Nikkei Business Magazine listed him as the top ten designer of the world. Though Young-se Kim has created many award winning designs, he is very proud of Cubik as one of his best design work. Cubik’s modern and distinct design has caught the eyes of national news syndications and broadcast outlets. It's unforgettable contours stand out on any desk and are a match made in heaven for its full-digital hi-fi sound.
Kim’s story begins at the ripe age of 16 when he decided to be a designer. After studying industrial design in Seoul and Chicago, Kim found Innnodesign in Palo Alto, California in 1986. It has expanded offices to Seoul, Beijing and Tokyo. He has designed Samsung mobile phones, LG fridges and iRiver MP3 players. For Kim, design can make people dream of the future and change their lives. Kim believes most deeply that ‘design is loving others.'
Think Outside the Black BoxIn creating this modern and sleek appeal of Cubik, Kim took a minimalist’s perspective. “When first visualizing Cubik, I was determined to think outside of the black box, as I wanted to create somthing from scratch.” With a smirk Kim pauses, then continues, “Ironically, I ended up creating a black box, that was literally turned on its side. But it is this subtle twist on the classic cube shape that gives users a fresh perspective on audio design.”

Audioholics.comThese sound pretty good and if you want to feel better about the price, just compare them against the B&W MM-1s - those run around $500 a pair. No sub. You can audition these at several brick & mortar retailers and if you're in the market for some above-average speakers, that's what I suggest you do. I think you'll like them.
