Sir David Adjaye has partnered with premium audio company Master & Dynamic to design his first speaker. Bold and immersive, the new MA770 wireless speaker is an elegant reinvention that draws upon the distinctive use of materials and sensory-focused craftsmanship for which Adjaye is known.
Made of a proprietary concrete composite, the piece provides a number of acoustic benefits such as increased dampening, reduced resonance and purer sound. It marries a rich, sculptural quality, with a robust tactile heft that is delicately balanced with gentle curves.
“This speaker is not about the traditional idea of making boxes, but about a directional form. I became fascinated with the idea of using triangles to break down the mass of the box, and to see if we could dissolve the sense of volume through sculptural detail,” said Sir David Adjaye. “We created a new geometry for this speaker. A new geometry of sound.”
The MA770 Wireless Speaker is available for pre-order at www.masterdynamic.com and at the MoMA Design store.
