There is something very lovable about technology with a natural, physical feel. It’s something designers often pursue. From the desktop and trashcan metaphor with objects that have natural shades, to Apple designers making an ebook flip pages and using wood elements in their apps. You see this ‘earthy’ masking of technology happening in physical objects more and more too and these natural speakers by Dutch design studio Joon & Jung
are a beautiful example of that.
With the ceramic, wood and leather construction it has a sympathetic and unique feel about it and apparently the porcelain gives the sound it produces a “natural feeling of resonance, resembling the distinct flair of an acoustic instrument right in front of you.”
. Though these speakers are handmade in a limited edition, it gives great inspiration on giving regular speakers a completely different look (like we’ve seen in the hidden lamp speakers
) and possibly sound.
