After the success of Balmuda’s first kitchen appliance, Balmuda The Toaster, a coffee maker was planned. However, it would be six years before it happen. In between, a kettle, a rice cooker and a microwave oven joined the growing artisanal kitchen appliances.
Do not doubt your eyes. What you see here is indeed a 2021’s smartphone. The phone is from Japanese high-end appliance maker, Balmuda, best known for its over-the-top expensive toaster, lantern, and portable vacuum tube speaker.
The market is not lacking of lanterns, but if form and function are what you are after, then Balmuda The Lantern may be it. Balmuda The Lantern is a portable LED light with modular brightness that provides a warm glow like the good’ol kerosene lantern.
What you see here is NOT a lantern, but given it has LED lights that sync to the music it is playing, you probably could use it to light your path. It is a Bluetooth speaker from Japanese brand Balmuda, called The Speaker.
