Industrial Product Design Project

Jerry Can Speaker project re-purposing and transforming a functional and iconic artefact into a new contextual use.

The speakers sound remarkably good and look very nice with projector screen setups.

Based on an ‘Upcycling & DIY’ project by industrial designer Samuel Bernier in Canada.
