the speaker Sira photographed in photo studio suroundings


The speaker box Sira is the result of an investigation to find out how the technological elements of speakers can be supported by designing the cabinet. I worked towards this goal through the scope of additive manufacturing processes and computational design.
I worked together with ABACUS electronics who provided me with their technology and high level technical feedback.

The loudspeaker cabinets consist of the cabinet interior and the cabinet itself, both of which are designed to overcome the disadvantages of conventional cabinets; the support elements, which are placed exactly where they are needed; and the base, which also serves as housing for the amplifier.

The scripts generating each speaker cabinet element are designed in a way that they can easily be adjusted to generate a cabinet for any combination of speakers and amplifiers.
