MISS STEEL / stereo


Based on the idea of "hanging," this stereo is designed to effectively avoid vibration from the desk. Since the acoustic effect of desk-top stereos can be easily affected by the vibration from desks, this design focuses on avoiding the shock transmitted from the desk to the speaker to improve sound quality.

The idea of the modeling is derived from the rigid frame and wire rope in architecture. Two full range speakers suspended in the middle of steel frames by wire ropes is to prevent vibration, so as the shock absorbers’ function to the sackbut. The stainless steel frames present the visual effect of aggression.
