This Bluetooth speaker is inspired by Alishan (Ali Mountain), an alpine peak in Taiwan that once supported a thriving logging industry. Today, the mountain and its land are designated a National Scenic Area. Tourists can ride the forest railway train—a relic from the past—to view the sunrise and hike through the regenerated native forest.

The mountain parkland is often shrouded in mist; at other times, the temperate woodland is bathed in the warm glow of the sunrise. Sunlight-backed tree trunks inspire the vertical wooden grill that graces the exterior of this speaker. The matte side cover is see-through, offering a view through to the wooden grill that imitates viewing trees through low-lying clouds. The speaker itself floats on a translucent stand like a forested peak above a misty valley.

We sourced forest resource-managed wood for the Alishan speaker, so the product supports ecological balance.
