One needs to have a lot of money to put something that ugly in one's living room just to watch people feel compelled to say "how lovely!" while a genuine sense of horror is leaking from the dept of their eyes... (always wear sun glasses inside a rich person's house)

Looks like the cabinets came from the children's section at Ikea.

I would paint them orange and use them in case your car breaks down.

They might make good scarecrows.

I like the idea but with only a low end of 50hz isn't much better than my M22's. I expected more considering the size of the cone shape bottom. Wireless connectivity is a very nice feature combined with the built in iPod dock.

I don't find them as offensive as some you others but the I agree that if you're going to be paying that much for speakers, at least make them fully functional (ie. a fuller range speaker). But Starck is well know for this. He designs for the sake of design, like his orange juicer that leaves more juice on the counter than the in the glass. Well, at least they've got more character than <rhymes with hose>.

Protected while sounding good. I wonder if they make a condom version.

Ahah, and the name is as original as the speaker itself. For those of you who don't know, the french kids "from the hoods" have this nice habit to say some words reversing the syllables, so ZikMu is in other words MuZik which is really spelled musique.
