Brooklyn based artist Wang Jinsheng's "Gypsy Wheel" 
speaker system played beautiful music at the
International Contemporary Furniture Fair in NYC this week!!! 

 

Salvaged tires fitted with speaker cones, mounted to drum kit hardware, plus bicycle components, break levers, calipers, a turntable & amplifier are combined to create this amazing bespoke sound sculpture. According to the artist, he designed the piece for bars and restaurants, but after the enthusiastic response it got this week, it is available by comission for your home!!!! 

I think this is a fabulous "accessoration"!!! 
Don't you???
