The speaker gets stylized with a sleek and modern design
Audio speakers have come a long way, from big and bulky of years past to now, where they are small and compact. The natural progression of speakers will be to make them even more compact, lightweight, and wireless. Enter in the Thin Boombox, which is a newly designed speaker concept from German-born masters candidate and industrial designer Hannes Harms.
Harms designed the speaker concept making use of flat and pliable electrical components to make the speakers as thin as possible. The speakers use 0.5mm thin stainless steal, which makes for less usage of materials. Another huge benefit would be that it could be shipped flat, which would help reduce costs, and creates a sleek and modern look which could still possibly produce great sounds.
Once received in a flat envelope, the speakers could be opened and bent into shape on pre-scored lines to take shape. You might recognize the use of flat electrical components in other concepts such as with the Nokia prototype flex phone. The Harms design doesn’t mention anything about a wireless connection, but one would assume with a flat modern design a wireless connection would be thought of as well.
