Concrete design that makes noise

(Israel)  —  It started with a canoe, then an espresso machine. Now the latest project by the Israeli industrial design student Shmuel Linski is the 123-pound speakers once again, made of concrete.

The unusual shape of the speakers is made to accommodate the functional parts of the speaker- a driver and port which are linked by a 38-inch pipe without any sound absorbent lining. Linski says the bell shape of the speaker makes up for this but its audio performance has yet been put to the test.

As for why he likes to work with concrete, Linski says:

We often encounter plastic, wood, leather and other basic materials in our homes, but we encounter concrete as a ‘hidden’ material which is covered by layers of plaster and paint. In my work I tried to give, in addition to great aesthetics, practical reasons for using concrete as a main material in a product.

The speakers were created as a final year project for Shenkar College of Engineering and Design in Tel Aviv.
