"Building Blocks (Antwerp)"

This work is based on the idea of ‘aimai’, a Japanese word describing — in a positive light — those things that are somewhat vague or ambiguous. This idea is expressed also in the way it is observed when one of our devices is placed in a room. Paradoxically, there is a special viewing distance where our image becomes clearer as one moves away from it, before it again becomes more indistinct. With this work, we celebrate the connection between architecture and sound, and pay homage to the interesting architecture of the MAS-building. Designed by Neutelings Riedijk Architects, the MAS is ‘the museum by the stream’ and is located next to the Scheldt river in the beautiful city of Antwerp, Belgium. This building literally rose like the proverbial phoenix from the ashes, for in 2006 it was erected on the same spot where a 19th-century warehouse had burnt down many years before. Even its contemporary form was inspired by the former warehouse, with its many stacked spaces — building blocks, if you will. Sound can sometimes work in the same way; a beautiful melody is made up from a series of notes, which in some obscure way, creates a result that is much more than the sum of its parts.


Artwork produced by our Dutch studio (© 2019), using own on-site photographs captured in Antwerp as reference and inspiration.

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.



‘Most Eloquent Speaker’-winner in Wallpaper* Magazine’s SS-Awards, 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.

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)

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.
