The Giacinto speakers literally get shipped in an envelope. Designed in a manner that can be flat-packed, the speakers come as drivers that are attached to leather sleeves. When shipped, the entire unit is shipped in a bubble-wrap lined envelope, and on being received, needs to be put together, introducing a DIY element that makes the user feel involved. The speakers are connected using the wires that come with the packaging, and folded into an icosahedral shape, giving the speaker its own hollow acoustic chamber.
The Giacinto comes with two 5W speakers, an amplifier, and connecting cables. Making an argument that a product’s beauty lies in its ability to unravel secrets and teach a user more about it, the Giacinto’s DIY element hopes to help people get more in touch with the tech around them, hopefully rebooting the era of taking a screwdriver and tinkering with and fixing products rather than having them exchanged or dumping them in a landfill.
