The Spinnaker model in red gets its name from the colorful "bonus-wind" sails pulled up during the downwind leg of a race. Some might think they resemble devil horns...in a pretty way, though.

The subwoofer in this award-winning desktop speaker set takes Piet Mondrian's paintings as its inspiration. I loved the small wireless volume control unit--just a simple volume knob with a central button for quick muting.

One of the stranger designs resembles a motorcycle helmet.

This one is a bit more conventional, but it still brings strong attention to shape and line in its design.

This model was smaller but still had a nice, big sound.
