VOID is a speaker which presents a new concept for designing audio products.
By viewing music as an entire experience and not just satisfying audio, VOID provides more than quality sound but a truly engaging music experience.
Equipped with a pair of full-range speakers, two tweeters and a woofer, VOID has a compact but balanced stereo system powerful enough to fill the room with quality sound. But by simultaneously accompanying the music with staggering visuals and intimate interactions, VOID becomes a functional art piece which stimulates the imagination of a world of music in the user’s mind. Thus VOID becomes an interface between the imagined and the reality, the percepted and the sensual, creating a new resort to engage the mind.
VOID is controlled by a few intimate movements. A long touch on the bottom controls on & off, while two quick taps initiates Bluetooth reconnection. A gentle touch on the left surface pauses & play the music. Volume is tuned up and down by sliding your hand on the right surface. The visuals move according to the current volume, glowing up when your hand touches the right surface and slowly fades out again after the hand has left.
