Thanks to Steve Jobs, computer design has experienced a renaissance of sorts in recent years. Today's computers are no longer relegated to the dark confines of dusty basement offices. In many living rooms they are holding their own next to Eames chairs and Le Corbusier sofas. Unfortunately, makers of computer speakers have been slow to embrace this renaissance. That is until the designers from Bang & Olufsen in Denmark introduced the BeoLab 4 earlier this year.
The first thing you'll notice about the BeoLab 4 is the pyramid design. Standing about 8 inches tall, the unit is encased in three removable triangular cloth panels (which are available in blue, red, black and gray) that give it a sleek, contemporary look.
