Origami-inspired Viva Docking Speaker fits right into modern Asian decorsPosted by Asmita Prasad on Jul 13, 2012 in Design Buzz, Graphic Design blog | Comments Off
Are you tired of picking up decor accessories made of bamboo and rattan to make your Asian-inspired décor appear more authentic? Then, you’re simply going to love this lovely new Viva Docking Speaker by designer Jang se-chan. Inspired by the Japanese art of paper folding AKA origami, the docking speaker comes folded flat though it can simply be twisted and turned into a cube-shaped speaker. The perfect space saving solution for people who do not like to see their countertops, tabletops, shelves and mantle-tops cluttered with audio accessories that are used occasionally.
The Viva Docking Speaker uses the reverberation of sound within the empty cube to create a deep base and produce a surround sound effect which makes the docked smartphone, android-based phone or the iPhone sound seamlessly loud yet high fidelity. However, what can be a bit of a turn off for a few users is the fact that the Viva Docking Speaker is fashioned out of an aluminum mesh with a chrome finish which as we know tends to corrupt the purity of sound as compared to wood- or paper-pulp based speakers. On the plus side, the Viva Docking Speaker is extremely portable and can even be carried around in one’s pocket after being folded flat which makes it a great iPhone or Android phone accessory for music lovers on the go.
