Versatile wireless speaker celebrated for innovative product design, perfect for the flexible lifestyle of its users
March 30, 2016– Leading the way in innovative speaker design, Libratone has been awarded one of the highest accolades in the design industry this year – the prestigious Red Dot Award in product design. With 61 years of tradition, the Red Dot Award is a globally respected competition in which experts assess products for high quality and innovative power.
The Libratone ZIPP was selected amongst 5,000 entries for its ground-breaking, high quality design. This is the second time that a wireless speaker in the Libratone family has won the coveted quality seal of a Red Dot Award.
“We are thrilled that the Libratone ZIPP has been awarded in this year’s Red Dot Awards,” said Jan McNair, Libratone CEO. “Libratone aims to design products that perfectly align with a 21st Century, elastic lifestyle. This lifestyle requires that the elements in our home are functional, flexible, simple and above all they need to help us create the perfect mood for every situation. The Libratone ZIPP seamlessly joins ease of use with stunning style to adhere to its user’s flexible requirements.”
Launched in Fall 2015, the versatile Libratone ZIPP features a cylinder-shaped design with 360 degree sound, making placement in the home incredibly easy and flexible. The slim and stylish multi-room speaker impressed the 40 strong member expert panel for Red Dot.
The ZIPP is outfitted in a CoolWeave mesh material, bringing color into the world of sound. By combining great audio engineering with a design that blends into modern home décor, Libratone sound systems stand out from the traditional black-box speakers which crowd the market today. Without compromising on the audio experience, Libratone uses form and color in an unconventional way to create a visually appealing and beautiful unisex design that people can personalize according to their own tastes and décor.
The Libratone ZIPP is available now in Cloudy Grey, Deep Lagoon, Graphite Grey, or Victory Red and is sold at Libratone.com for $299. Also available in the Libratone speaker family is the ZIPP MINI, an even more flexible, portable speaker that goes anywhere you go and pairs beautifully with ZIPP.

Libratone is on a mission to liberate sound and to expand peoples’ experiences with music in the era of streaming. Founded in 2009, Libratone is one of the first audio companies to consider the aesthetics of speakers – to move them out of the corner of the room and into the centre and onward, for the consumer on the move. Designed in the Scandinavian tradition, Libratone creates high performing sound refined through plush fabrics for a warmer, brighter listening experience. In 2014, the company welcomed Chinese investment and technological insight, enabling an unprecedented technological leap forward. The 2015 launch of SoundSpaces and the new ZIPP family is the first release under the new ownership and marks a refresh of the Libratone brand.
