COMBINE ARTWORK & FUNCTION

"Rough Cut"  |  limited edition (of 50)

Appreciating music can be a very personal and multi-sensory experience: sometimes, you don’t just hear it. This artwork-grill was inspired by favourite musical performances of the past, seen through the lens of the microscopic groove-cuts found on vinyl records: an analogue technology which miraculously clung to life. Magnified, its undulations look like the rough stone of mountains and canyons, but these actually represent a version of the sound waves that was once captured by a microphone (or created on a computer). And as you listen to music through our products, you too can experience it as a multi-sensory event:  you won’t just hear it, you’ll see it, and — hopefully — be moved by it.


Artwork by our Dutch studio (© 2020). 

Taking a different route, we treat our audio products as pieces of functional art. Designed in The Netherlands and skilfully made in the EU, each product features a special interchangeable artwork-grill: Openings are carefully carved from solid material — a bit like sculpting — to create a monolithic grill that simultaneously lets through sound as it blocks out light to form a black-and-white image.

 

Our registered ‘frustum-shaped’ enclosure is modular, offered as a premium WiFi-speaker or acoustic room-treatment system.

 

PREMIUM WIFI-SPEAKER: S-A VOICE

Our WiFi-speaker brings the art of simplicity to your home by solving a puzzle of complexity. Within its minimalist exterior we’ve inserted a complete cutting-edge audio solution, including 100W of amplifier power and truly special speaker-drivers. Compatible with the major streaming services and operated via smartphone, it is simple to use. Offering high-end audio quality, but without the need for signal-wires or floor space: place it like framed-artwork — on top of a cabinet or wall hung. The device is also intended to be upgradeable in the future, to ensure a longer life.

In the box: 

  • 1 x enclosure in white with complete integrated audio-system (wall-mounting brackets on the back)
  • 1 x interchangeable artwork grill (shown in the images) attached with magnets
  • Grey textile AC-cable (3m long)
  • Additional short AC-cable (optional use)
  • User guide

 

Can be paired-up wirelessly for stereo-separation or a multi-speaker setup, for even better results. Buy additional artwork-grills to alternate the look.

ACOUSTIC ROOM-TREATMENT: S-A CALM

For all its benefits, acoustic treatment deserves more attention but also more consideration of its appearance. Our solution is an uncluttered device that works quietly and faithfully, reducing noise and improving indoor acoustics — to make speech clearer and music sound better.

In the box: 

  • 1 x enclosure in white with integrated acoustic-treatment system (no electricity needed). Wall-mounting brackets on the back
  • 1 x interchangeable artwork grill (shown in the images) attached with magnets
  • User guide

A great compliment to the S-A VOICE. Combine multiple units of the S-A CALM to improve acoustics in bigger, livelier spaces.
