It doesn't look like any other speaker. That's entirely on purpose. The Sony Glass Sound Speaker is meant to provide both music and lighting for your next gathering. For sound, it has a glass tube tweeter that emits audio in every direction, a translucent passive bass radiator, a 2" woofer for midrange, and LDAC Bluetooth for excellent audio quality, while the glass tube allows a candlelight glow to escape the built-in LEDs. Available exclusively at MoMA.

It's just a concept. But what a concept it is. Designed with runs at the land speed record in mind, this BMW Titan Motorcycle Concept is an angular, air-swallowing ode to speeders of old. It was created by Turkey-based designer Mehmet Doruk Erdem, its front wheel is completely hidden inside the wide, vent-ridden body work, with the exposed rear wheel and lie-flat riding position the only hints at the bike's true purpose.
Some of the most unlikely collaborations are the best. And Brainville Rye Whiskey from Few Spirits and legendary Grammy-winning band The Flaming Lips fits squarely into the unlikely category. Just like Few's award winning rye, it's made using rye, corn, and malted barley that is grown within 150 miles of the Few Distillery and then aged in new, charred American oak barrels. The whiskey is then packaged in the familiar rectangular Few bottles with a special psychedelic label that shows the influence of the Lips. Available this October and limited to 5,000 bottles.

BMW's M5 is already a powerful sedan. The BMW M5 Pure Metal Silver Edition is just more so. Thanks to a pressure boost and other tweaks to its 4.4L TwinPower Turbo V8, it has 40 more hp than the production car, bringing the total up to 600 and giving it a 0-60 time of 3.9 second and a top speed of 190. It sits on special 20-inch forged wheels, is painted in an exclusive Pure Metal Silver color that's applied by hand in a multi-step process, and has a special badge inside showing what number yours is out of the 50 being made.
Turin-based Bertone has design cars for such prestigious brands as Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Mercedes Benz. But they kept the best for themselves. These Bertone Concept Cars are too fantastical to be road-legal, but are amazing nonetheless, with features like gull wing doors, glass canopies, and front ends that fold forward, allowing you to step in standing up before laying nearly flat. And true to the company's style, they're only made in white, green, or orange.
Wearing number 19 in the 1962 Osceola Grand Prix, this 1958 Ferrari 250 GT LWB California Spider is as comfortable racing around the track as it is cruising down the coastline. Among one of the first dozen of only 50 to come out of production, it was originally outfitted in Ferrari Rosso Rubino with a black leather interior. In 2014, the current own refinished the car's body in a dark blue and treated its Colombo V12 engine to a complete rebuild by renowned Ferrari mechanic Patrick Ottis. The car has not only been awarded a Ferrari Classiche certification, but also took home the Emeritus Cup at the 2016 Cavallino Classic.

Yet another classic convertible willed into existence by NYC importer Max Hoffman, this 1957 BMW 507 Roadster Series I was a large departure for a company that at the time was making microcars for the masses. It was built primarily from parts borrowed from the 502 and 503, including the 3.2L V8 engine. This particular car has seen only four owners over the years, including one who kept it for over 50, and retains its original interior and engine, with just over 45,000 miles on the odometer. It's also one of only 252 ever made, making it both attractive and rare.

Originally occupied by artisan workers, the Lambeth Marsh House gives a 19th-century London home a new life. With respect to the heritage of the building, much of the historic details were carefully refurbished back to their original state. The neglected wood paneling on the walls, window and door moldings, and fireplace surrounds were revived to keep the authenticity of the interior intact. A minimalist approach to the decor offset the traditional values of the home's classic finishes. While most of the modest brick dwelling remained the same, the ground floor welcomed a glazed addition to add a generous amount of both space and light.

Also suitable for use on your actual hair.
"Faster, faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death." This Hunter S. Thompson quote served as inspiration for and appears on the stunning Death Machines Of London Up Yours Copper Motorcycle. Based on a 2007 Triumph Thruxton 900, every piece on the bike — save for the Spitfire toggle switches — is either modified or custom. That includes the exhaust, with ceramic coated pipes and a carbon fiber muffler that exits through a hole in the center of the rear light, the hand-carved American Walnut seat, the bushed aluminum light cowl with integrated speedometer, the sweeping, hand-bent bars, and even the sprocket cover with solid brass grills.
When you're outdoors and on the move, it's less than ideal to pull out your phone in order to keep track of your group. The Bonx Wearable Walkie Talkie gets around this by pairing with your phone and letting you talk to your team with a single button press. Its oversized button is easy to tap, its wraparound design ensures it stays in place, and its water- and shock-resistant body lets it stand up to whatever you throw at it.
A wooden clad home isn't anything out of the ordinary, but the Julia & Bjorn House uses a criss-cross pattern for a unique take on the classic facade. A timber lattice covers the entire exterior to add an airy texture to the outer shell, while also providing a layer of weather protection. Keeping it's natural finish, the interior of the home is lined with solid spruce taken from the nearby Bregenz Forest. To contrast the beige tones of the hardwood, hand-made plaster surfaces made from a powered grey marble, including an inset bench seat, were produced on-site. Glazed doors facing the east and west look out onto the Austrian hillside and lead to a pair of terraces, fenced in by a lime and walnut tree.
