Turn on the Quiet

Turn on the Quiet

This audio device, called Joe, will be your bestie when it comes to your personal office space at work. When surrounding noise pollution is disturbing your flow, Joe produces white noise (a sound composed of all audible frequencies to the human ear) to essentially “cancel-out” cacophony so you can focus. It’s like being in your own imaginary bubble of isolation when you don’t have the option to close the door! Vid after the jump!

A Different Desk from the Rest

A Different Desk from the Rest

Soundbox is a one-of-a-kind design that stands out both aesthetically and functionally! At the heart of this whimsical desk is an integrated old-school amplification system that captures audio from a recessed smartphone dock built-in to its surface. Odd, but oh-so cool! An eccentric blend of materials including mesh and polished metalwork mixed with patchwork wood are a perfect compliment to its overall unconventionality.

A Transforming Twist on the Speaker

A Transforming Twist on the Speaker

Twist is the portable speaker that functions exactly as you might imagine- with a twist! In the off position, it appears a smooth, simple cube, but turn it on and 2 corner layers twist around to reveal hi-def outputs. Keeping with the stark aesthetic, the subwoofer is also hidden on the underside. The transforming design not only puts the fun in functionality but protects the sensitive speaker components when not in use!

A speaker as good alive as dead.

A speaker as good alive as dead.

We’d like to believe our beloved devices will last us a lifetime, but they all have an expiration date whether it’s because we upgrade or they fail to continue working. Most current electronics are wrongly designed around our false trust that they will last forever, & therefore pay little attention to the product’s afterlife. The ORBiS Bluetooth speaker is not one of these products! Each & every component was thoughtfully crafted with awareness to it’s impermanence. As much as possible, it’s recyclable, salvageable, fixable & safely disposable. All without sacrificing functionality or beauty!
