The company was started by Brooklyn-based artists Rebecca Paul and Mikal Hameed, and was born out of their desire to create artwork that was also functional, tech-savvy, beautiful and sustainable. Paul and Hameed scour the streets to find wood to use inside the frames and around the speakers. As for the fabric that gives the sound frames their bespoke look, only scraps or remnant cloth are used.

While the majority of the elements that make up Rebaroque‘s sound frames are reclaimed, there’s one thing they will make an exception on. They often use found or reclaimed speakers that function beautifully, but at this point every frame has one speaker that is new to ensure good sound quality. And while inspired by the rich details of the Baroque style, these babies are far from antiquated – each one features a cable that can easily be connected to your computer or portable music player, and they can be outfitted so that you can dock your iPhone or Blackberry or connect via Bluetooth.
