Big Sound. Compact Speaker.
An accessible and innovative speaker for the home
​​​​​​​Orbit is an innovative and accessible speaker for the home where experience and function have been the core of the design. The study of sound in motion called Cymatics has given inspiration to work from a new perspective and approach about how sound travels.
The components of the speaker have been designed with unconventional shapes to achieve more ways of directing sound and give the perception of large sound from a compact speaker.
Environment, experience and users have been taken into consideration to create a long-term use of the speaker. It should be inspiring and easy to get closer to your music in different spaces.
Sound in Motion
​​​​​​​Orbit uses small speaker parts with passive components to balance and enhance the sound. The active sound producing modules are the Orbit 360 - treble module with a sound deflector sandwiched between the speakers. The Orbit Bassmodule paired with the C-shaped Soundtube Module. These design elements creates a bigger sound produced to fill a larger space.
Unibutton - The Interactive Element
The Unibutton gathers all control in one and handles several control functions. It calculates from which direction a user first interacts with the sphere and adapt controls to the direction of the user. By sweeping, tilting and pressing the user can then control various functions such as changing the song or adjusting the volume. After not being in use for the moment the Unibutton resets the direction to be controlled from.
Circular Design
What distinguishes the speaker to other is the ability to easily disassemble and repair components. This results on less environmental impact and requires less resources of material. The larger C-shaped component for example is a passive sound guiding component less likely to break and be repaired. The sound creating components are separated from the upgradable Smart Module that can be upgraded to add new hardware features. This means that only a small part of the speaker needs to be updated and extend the use of the speaker.
