speakerwear for uploud audio

Spring 2015

conceptual speakerwear

This project is a result of a textile based course in collaboration with Uploud Audio. The design brief was to create new ideas for the speakerwear of the minimalist UA1 speaker (100 W). We were given free hands with design and materials.

I started the project with a material research studying recycled suede leather. I got very excited with all the three-dimensional surfaces. After several prototypes, I chose to use a mixture of a grey cotton and brown suede leather.

I wanted to question our point of view for what speakers should look like and to create something experimental and playful. Could a speaker be also a decorative element?
