As technology becomes increasingly integrated into our lives, we begin to have a more personal relationship with it. The JinGoo — the name refers the singing of orioles in ancient Chinese poems — plays on the idea of having a songbird as a pet without caging an animal. Taipei-based designers Sean Chen and Lotta Tu funded their creation on Indiegogo to bring a modern reimagining of traditional Chinese craft to the world.
At MoMA Design Store, we offer the most cutting-edge products that use tech to enhance everyday life. Every item that is selected is product-tested using real-life scenarios, and reviewed by MoMA design curators to ensure that it passes our ultimate litmus test: Is this design truly useful? If it didn't exist, would the world miss it?
There are talking parrots and then there's this â€œJingoo birdâ€ who plays your entire music library. Handmade from premium ceramic by Taiwanese artisans, this minimalist bird-shaped Bluetooth speaker and ambient light lives inside a metal cage. The combined sound waves from the tweeter in the body and the low-frequency woofer under the tail create a wide stereo effect. The light provides three levels of brightness. Perfect for garden parties and indoor mood setting. Solid walnut wood base.
