Have you ever entered a small confined space you have also experienced the silence and solitude that you'll find inside. Spherical spaces almost completely blocks the noise from the outside world. This was our starting point when we developed the AudioOrbs. The first spherical speaker you can enter. Based on the Micasa Lab Cocoon developed by the same team we have fitted the AudoOrbs with speakers instead of storage modules.
Fitted with Tempur pillows that adjust after the shape of your body ensures that not only the design gives the Orb a floating expression, you will feel like you are floating when inside the Orb.
The 18 speakers mounted inside gives you a rich and full audio spectrum.
Inside the Orb the outside world fades away, ideal for relaxation.
We will build 2 units, possibly the only two units ever to be built. This is a chance to own a unique piece of technology/contemporary design.
The Orb is a collaboration between ST and Pjadad
Previously ST has developed Speaker concepts like the Wall of Sound and the Wall of Sound 2.0. The worlds biggest iPhone speaker. These products has been hugely successful and The Orb is a continuation of cutting edge speaker development and research.
The AudioOrbs have been developed by ST, a small Scandinavian Creative Lab.
Together with engineers, product developers and visionaries ST has set a goal: To find, invent and develop RADICALLY new and awesome products with the potential to change the world.
As of today, we have around 10 products in development including a flying carpet, a cellphone, a system for storing energy. We are always looking for new ideas, often together with our trendspotters from Haparanda to Hong Kong.
ST is operated in co-operation with the agency Studio Total that has made a name for itself as a radical, new-thinking agency. Our aim is to encourage sustainability, creativity and make the world a better place. For more information, read about us in Wired or Gizmodo.
Pjadad is a multidisciplinary experimental studio that works within the fields of design, art and branding.
The studio has always strived to find new ways to challenge and questioning already existing structures and systems with the philosophy that content, function and meaning is the foundation for well elaborated communication.
Most of our works are within the fields of idea and concept development, strategy, identity, products, exhibitions, campaigns, lectures and workshops.
