This speaker is handcrafted by fine carpenter Calle Hansson at DRY Studios in Stockholm. Fine carpentry is normally used in furniture, but here it makes up the cabinet. The joining methods are high precision, purely artistic if you ask us, and very much in line with the attention to detail our speakers represent in general.
In the latest iteration of the series Calle have used white stained solid oak and angled cuts to join the panels together. A perfect match with the natural white shade of our components. We see this work as the reinvention of the traditional wood speaker.
Once you place your order Calle selects a suitable wood blank and starts extracting the pieces for your speaker with precision. It takes a lot of knowledge in the material to understand how cut it to the precision necessary for us to mount the components. The woods beautiful natural pattern flows around the product since the same pieces has been carefully cut and refitted to form the cabinet. The cabinet is treated with white pigmented hard wax oil. The artwork lasered on the front and back. It’s this attention to details that we think you will love.
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. With the wood you get a round and gently warm timbre (tone color) adding an extremely subtle touch that makes the object even more interesting and personal just like a wood instrument.
Our products are designed for a circular economy. Apart from a long lasting quality and appearance, this means a modular design that can be repaired and upgraded over time with technology constantly evolving. This way, users can keep their product updated by their preference and change only a small part, instead of replacing the whole unit. Transparent products will get better with age and we will do what we can to remove electronic waste from the world.
