Spotify player

industrial design

A prototype of a standalone device to listen to Spotify at home, that was the degree project of Jordi Parra, an Interaction Design student at the Umeå Institute of Design. Parra created a device inspired by the work of Dieter Rams for Braun. The functional player comes with 8 (RFID) tags that can be assigned to a Spotify link, album, artist or search.

The device has two small buttons to skip to the next and previous track in the queue. The big button is the volume control and reader for the tags.

Unfortunately this device is not available for sale. Parra created the prototype to show and test the concept but it is not a final product yet. During the project Christian Wilsson, Art Director at Spotify, provided feedback and maybe they will find a way to bring this product to market.
