After a series of trial and error processes, this speaker was born with unexpected potency of sound volumn and quality. 


A environmental and technological slab pulp speaker

There are millions of 3C products in the world but few are recycleable. We developed a environmental, industrial and technological slab pulp speaker that breaks the limit of enclosed traditional speaker. We use the resonance characteristic of flat-panel speaker allow the sound perform 360-degree travel and shows the penetration. Special selected environmental recycled pulp material, natural and structural texture. The lightweight is easier to carry and delivery, and the front and back identical single modeling manufacturing design making the product and the manufacturing process more environmental.

一款兼具環保與科技的紙漿平板喇叭

球有數以百萬計的3C產品,可回收的比例屈指可數,我們特別設計一款兼具環保、工學、科技的紙漿平板喇叭,突破一般傳統喇叭的封閉式空間侷限,利用平板喇叭的共振原理,使聲音進行360度全方位的擴散以及表現穿透感。材質選用特製環保再生紙漿,質感天然且具結構性,重量輕盈也更好運送及攜帶,製造上也利用模組化前後重複單一元件的設計,使生產過程及產品本身都更環保。

"'What is this?'is the first question we get,"says Balance Wu,director of Balance Wu Design.That's reasonable.The Pulpop,as it,s called, looks nothing like an audio speaker-but that's what it is.Wu and design partner Chin Yang took inspiration from the recycled pulp packaging used for Apple computers,but they needed to overcome a serious flaw in their ecofriendly paln:Sound doesn't carry well through pulpy paper.The hollow loop was their solution. It provides a concentrated mass of surface area for sound to reverberate through, blasting out audio with unexpected potency.(Sound originates from a small bit of electronics in the base.) The material is well designed for the afterlife,too:With 75% of discarded household electronics destined for landfills, this speaker's shell will biodegrade easily.-Margaret Rhodes
