The Yin and Yang of iSound

The two halves of the Opus portable speaker system hold your iDevices firmly in place at an ideal viewing angle, turning the meager stock sound from an iPad, iPhone, or iPod into a room filling resonance. For portability, the two halves use magnets to snap and stay together. Genius! Hit up their Kickstarter page.

Timbre Timber

Timbre Timber

Timbre, by Casey Lin, trims the essence of the speaker down to the bare minimum, allowing the inherent qualities of the materials to become the focal point of the design. With superfluous elements stripped away, all that remain visible are glass and wood, chosen for their enhanced acoustic qualities. Placing different objects on the raw wood block instantly changes the sound, encouraging user interaction and a deeper connection to the object. Jump to the video to hear how it works!

Bell Sound

Bell Sound

The Bell Sound speakers are an unconventional twist on home audio that are composed of super-strong parallam, an engineered wood material most often used in the construction industry. To contrast the natural wood tone, each speaker rests on a hand-turned aluminum base. Though modern in material, the elongated, exaggerated bell shape hints to the design’s original inspiration- the gramophone.
