Don’t gunk up your artfully appointed living room with artlessly boxy speakers. The Danes at Bang & Olufsen have designed a sonic solution for you. The wall-mounted BeoSound Shape is assembled from three flavors of hexagonal tiles: speakers, amplifiers, and echo-absorbing noise dampers. Mix and match the modules to build a unique array that’s ideal for your dwelling, then select a color scheme that matches your Mondrian. The modules all connect to a brain called the Core, and its algorithm spreads the signal to the speakers. By ditching the typical left-right stereo arrangement, it transforms every seat in the room into a sweet spot. So relax, enjoy the tunes, and gaze at your personal sound sculpture. | $4,025 and up
