suitcase boom boxes

November 26, 2012

As founders of Atlanta-based Curious Provisions, David Preiss and Javier Santana like to give old things a new life.

In their digital design studio in Atlanta, they fashioned a huge conference table from plumbing pipes and recycled barn wood. The upcyclers, who met and worked at, also crafted desks from vintage sewing machine treadles.

Then Javier found a pair of Cerwin-Vega speakers and an old Sony receiver on Craigslist and some vintage suitcases at a thrift store. After some tinkering, the guys came up with an idea for a new business – and some functional art.

In May, they launched the Thumper, a one-of-a-kind rechargeable boom box made from a vintage suitcase and hi-fi speakers. Portable and rechargeable, the cases, which come in a variety of colors, designs and sizes, are custom wired and sealed for safety.

Prices range from $590 to $790. Find the suitcase boom boxes at
