One of a series of numbered limited-edition pieces, this wood UPCRAFTED Speaker has been designed to the most minute detail by prestigious audio manufacturer Transparent Sound and handcrafted by carpenter Calle Hansson at DRY Studios in Stockholm.
Pared back to include only the most essential elements, the speaker showcases the natural grain of solid Swedish ash that has been skilfully crafted by Hansson. Treated with hard wax oil and a touch of white pigment, the speaker is finished with DRY Studios’ artwork lasered on the front. The clean-lined design is finished with chrome metal accents, including a volume adjustment knob, a cable jack and a rocket power switch on the front.
The speaker is Bluetooth-compatible with phones, tablets and computers, as well as Apple AirPlay, Sonos, Amazon Echo and Google Cast, and is fitted with True Wireless dual-speaker streaming capabilities.
Having released its first speaker in 2012, Stockholm-based Transparent Sound aspires to create pieces that are interior design objects as well as great-sounding technology. Each speaker it designs is crafted to a standard that ensures it can be passed down through generations to come.
