Jerry Can Audio Speaker industrial design project re-purposing and transforming a functional and iconic artefact into a new contextual use. This project was inspired by an project by industrial designer, Samuel Bernier in Canada.


Personal project to repurpose meaning of iconic symbolic objects. Carry handles make them highly portable for use indoors or outside on sunny days. They require their own separate amplifier. Sound quality is reasonable with some slight resonance at higher volumes due to the material properties. This exact pair are currently for sale, so if you would like to grab them, please get in touch.
