Rustle / Speaker

Rustle
Rustle

“Rustle” is an artistically crafted, bamboo-made ipod stereo system.
Its form is inspired by an ancient Chinese character, “音”, which means “sound”, while the material bamboo is commonly used in Chinese musical instruments.
“Rustle” is a mixture of ancient and contemporary elements.
Passing down the Taiwanese handcraft tradition, we envelop the entire stereo system with woven bamboo stripes, creating the imagery of sound lingering in a bamboo forest.
“Rustle” is not only a stereo system, but also a piece of art.
