Han-wool speaker / Speaker

Han-wool speaker
Han-wool speaker

Han-wool speaker is a design that explicits the vibration of one of the most renowned texts in the world, Hangul, Korean alphabet. Hangul is based on a very scientific principle that reflects the cultural richness of South Korea. The basic principle of creating a syllable in Korean language is by combining different phonemes. Han-wool speaker was designed using this fundamental principle.
Like syllables of many other languages, Korean alphabet also contains vowels and consonants. Han-wool speaker uses these elements and each element has its own function. The vowels function as the power supply and the hub of the speaker.
