A range without a false note
Magnified by the smart and aerial design from Philippe Starck, the state-of-the-art technology and the pure sound of the Zikmu take another dimension with the ‘in color’ collection: the elegance of Black, the purity of White, the sobriety of Grey, the fancy of Yellow and the passion of Red. Let your imagination run wild.
“With Zikmu, we created a beautiful and a unique object, for listening to music with today’s digital devices: iPod, iPhone, PC, Mac, television,” explains Henri Seydoux, founder and CEO of Parrot. “With the ‘Zikmu in colour’ collection, we pursue the idea of a high-tech product which is part of everyday life, in the same way as a piece of furniture or a decorative object. You choose it because you like it, because you will live well with it.”
