The studio brings to life ideas through practical engineering and excellent industrial design. It helps brands prepare a more marketable version of a prototype by launching relevant things with a distinct design. And that is what Hatch Duo did to the Solgaard Solarbank Boombox. It made the product more marketable with a more sustainable design.
Designer: Hatch Duo
Finding a decent Bluetooth speaker may be easy because there are many options. But getting the best or the most affordable one isn’t always the goal. The aim now is to make “greener” choices for the future of the planet. For this reason, the new Solgaard Solarbank Boombox portable speaker enters the market with a sustainable design. The upcycled plastic design refers to speaker cloth and outer shell from plastic waste. These are waste materials but had been upcycled and used instead. This process is part of the brand’s initiative to pull about 5lbs of plastic for every product sold.
The Solgaard Solarbank Boombox lets you enjoy music while the battery harnesses the power of the sun. This unit can juice up other devices like a smartphone or any other small devices. The speaker only needs an hour of basking under the sun for extra two hours of power. It allows wireless charging and fast Bluetooth pairing if you want to connect with another device. The all-in-one device is also now more ready for rugged use as it can survive accidental drops. The Solarbank Boombox is also now sand-proof, water-proof, and drop-proof, and can stay underwater for up to 30 minutes and a meter under water.
Hatch Duo aims for a more sustainable future and we know there will be more similar projects like this. There are plenty of more eco-friendly products that don’t compromise quality, like the Solgaard Solarbank Boombox. It doesn’t just offer beautiful aesthetics, it can also deliver premium audio performance. The active + passive bass radiator and a pair of 7-watt drivers make this possible. The speaker takes on the success of the Solgaard volume 1 boombox, but this one delivers 60% more bass and is louder by 40%.
Hatch Duo has already introduced to the market several product designs that can be life-changing. We remember the Krado Plant Sensor that can help get information about the plants. There is the Rubbish platform and Rubbish Beam that can make cleanup drives more exciting and fun. There’s also the slim and compact Walker Juicer that pays homage to Norman Walker and can fit easily into any kitchen.
The Solgaard Solarbank Boombox once again proves Hatch Duo’s track record and expertise in product design. The idea to make the speaker sustainable and solar-powered will be good for the planet. We believe this kind of “green” enhancement is something that other brands must follow.
