Another European design to swoon over. We like the look of this Portuguese-made music system so much that we'd be tempted to get it for the design alone. The "Audio Torch" (great name) is a wireless system with a built-in CD player and speakers that's designed to fit snugly in any corner, which makes great for space-challenged dwellings. Even more interesting, it projects a menu on the wall in colors that can be changed with its remote--which, in its silver disc form, is something of an objet d'art in and of itself. And the torch shape? The perfect accent for your neighborhood toga parties.
