Creating a piece of technology that is also an objet d’art is no easy feat, but this portable, USB-charged light and Bluetooth speaker pulls it off. Inspired by the Japanese art of kintsugi—repairing broken pottery with lacquer mixed with precious metal—Teno resembles a stone bowl with a golden crack running through it; pull it apart, and light and sound pour out. Made of cast resin and sand, Teno has no buttons. Just tap it to adjust light and sound intensity (a single 45-mm, full-range driver should cover a medium-size room). When the battery gets low, there’s no beeping—you’ll hear the sound of raindrops.
