FLOOR STANDING SPEAKERS

Design of floor standing speakers in three different versions; "Blade", "Ellipse" and "Edge"

The design examination process of the floor standing speakers consists of two basic rules - directions. The first direction is defined by the specifications of acoustic performance in a geometrical level - such as symmetry and the diminishing curvature of the morph from the level of the speakers and rear. The second rule relates to the components imparting the characteristics of a sculpture that constitutes a powerful spatial idea in which function is imprinted. As a result, form and function serve industrial design equivalently. The cabin design of "Blade" is defined by the process of α shell being incised. A curved vertical form is joined with a sharp edge - like an exclamation mark - in order to define a curved surface. It is then repeated on the fixed axis, shaping the shell. "Ellipse" is designed with a similar logic; the intersection of ellipses in three-dimensional space. Again, the shape results from the concept of the object being incised. "Edge" is the result of an opposite morphological process that consists of removing and sculpting a monolithic volume with the intention of producing triangular peaks and edges similar to those of a rock.
