This special edition explores the sculptural, more organic geometry because of its artistic expression as well as the acoustic properties of organic shapes. The inspiration of the Acoustic Sculpture was the human ear and acoustic horn shapes from nature such as a seashell. The horn shapes in the sculpture naturally amplifies the sound from the speaker elements.

Our fundamental aspiration as a brand is to explore how tech objects can become truly timeless and to what extent they may transform the wear-and-tear consumer culture. We design loudspeakers that are as much an interior decoration object, this is why we up-cycle components into crafted special editions.
Per has pushed jesmonite to the next level by making a special 3D printed cast for the base shape. After your order is placed the gypsum mineral material is made castable by an acrylic resin. The finished cast is then sprayed with a second layer that creates the unique organic texture of the sculpture. Jesmonite composite was invented in the UK as a less environmentally impactful option to resin, plaster and concrete back in 1984 by Peter Hawkins (that’s still involved in its development today).
Transparent sound refers to a loudspeakers ability to channel the true intention of a musician through to the listener. We tune the drivers to perform perfectly in the unique sealed acoustic volumes creating high quality sounds from our premium components. Our special editions come with the same five star sound performance as our permanent collection. The acoustic sculpture shape maximizes the sound waves path from the driver elements while also enhancing the stereo separation between the two drivers. With the sculpture you get crisp and punchy timbre (tone color) adding an extremely subtle touch that makes the object even more interesting and personal.
