A modern piece of art
The unforgettable voluptuous forms of the MiniPod continue to thrill design and music lovers all over the world. Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the MiniPod was to be found at MoMA’s design stores in New York City.
The MiniPod was originally designed by Simon Ghahary and Lawrence Dickie in 1991 – both of whom play a significant role in the development of the world famous Nautilus series at English speaker producer B&W. MiniPod was initially sold under the BlueRoom brandname. The MiniPod is later introduced to a wider audience by Danish audio company Scandyna.
In a world of pop
During the 1990s, Scandyna gains a lot of attention from the MiniPod being shown in the TV sitcom “Friends” and is also gifted a lucky break with UK band The Grid’s music video for “Swamp Thing” – a monster hit in 1994.
The video with multiple white speakers filmed plays everywhere, and the exposure is priceless.
For a while, Jaguar Racing Green and a range of other colours are introduced. Even a limited-edition transparent plastic MiniPod is made, which is very popular in combination with Apple Mac computers at this time. By September 2007, Scandyna has sold more than 100.000 MiniPods.
Diapason D’Or Award in 2015
Convinced that the ideal way of transmitting sound waves naturally is via round cabinets without flat surfaces and sharp edges, Scandyna are an antidote to the convention of square, box-type enclosures.
The MiniPod MK3 receives the distinguished Diapason D’Or Award in 2015.
