Speakers Made From Recycled Paper

Check out the TAU speakers; made from recycled cardboard and paper finished in epoxy, the exotic shapes are an exploratory exercise in finding the simplest shape to provide maximum audio fidelity. The result is an organic form suspended on rods designed to hide the cables. I applaud the designer for pushing the envelope to create speakers that audiophiles and designers alike can appreciate.

  • Interesting Speakers. I found the aesthetics attractive. This would be a big plus for a younger crowd.
    The fact that the speakers are green give the concept a big advantage for the future- as we are all moving towards greener and more energy efficient technology.

    I really dont have an opinnion about the design itself, but few words about philosophy.

    How come speakers are made out of recycled cardboard and paper? You mean the cover is made out of cardboard and paper. Or atleast, in the renderings that is only part that even distantly looks like this new “magic” material.

    So basicallly you should refire the title “Speakers Made From Recycled Paper”. Perhaps “Speaker cover, that is not even freestanding, is made from recycled cardboard and paper”. This is in fact important diffirence, since the material used for cover in this piece is quite small compared to the other design conclusions you made along the way. And by the way, epoxy is pretty bad for the enviroment. In other words, you are using pretty poisonous stuff to cover this “eco-friendly” paper.

    Taking enviroment into consideration when designing is good. But you have to do your homework. Using bold senteces like “Speakers Made From Recycled Paper”, is just LAME, if your idea is not implemented into your design.
