This flat speaker which incorporates future technology, follows the concept of LCD screen.
The shape of thin boombox allows for efficient shipping, with use of envelope style packaging.
This sound system has not been tested wet.
“For this speaker, I decided to focus on the idea of the flatness of future electrical components. I wanted to reduce manufacturing processes as well as material and volume. This speaker is made out of a flat sheet of 0.5mm stainless steel, holding a flat speaker component in place.
Thus, the shipping volume is limited to a flat envelop-fitting package. Once received by the user, the flat sheet can be easily bent in scored lines as a home assembly.”
