Qleek Music Player

Qleek is a beautiful way to play, share and collect online music. It features your favorite songs and artists in your living room, your office or your store. Each Qleek is a link to a playlist or an artist. It is automatically synced with most online music services and plays instantly by placing it on its player. We love to think of Qleek as a new Medium for new Media

Johanna strives to bring out the aesthetic qualities of materials and simple functional shapes by means of form, color, graphics and unconventional combinations. In so doing, She creates tension by juxtaposing new with old, technical with non-technical, industrial with hand-crafted, natural with digital and simple with complex. She mainly designs products for home use, such as furniture, lamps and kitchen utensils, but is also well-versed in two-dimensional and immaterial design like Qleek. During her various travels she was immersed in different design concepts and creative working methods, and developed a grasp for the subtle differences in everyday culture. Adaptability and attentiveness to unique contexts therefore play an important role in her work.


Qleek is the concretization of a fruitful encounter between a Ph.D. in Computer Science, an Embedded System Magician and a Designer from Les Ateliers Paris. It is a beautiful way to physically share with people the music you love. Made out of beech wood, it is the historic vow of vinyl and vintage posters lovers that the digital age can have its own medium.
