DIRK VANDER KOOIJ SNOWMEN SPEAKER SET
design by Dirk Vander Kooij, 2016
Studio Dirk Vander Kooij has developed, without exaggeration, the perfect speaker set to block-out all that white noise and to bring out the best of the music you want to hear: the SnowMEN.
The SnowMEN speaker set is designed according to the overall idea that form follows function, in other words the shape of the SnowMEN does not compromise on the sound quality.
The new SnowMEN speaker set is made with the help of an industrial robot, an inhouse development. This robot is pushing out one continuous dense line of reinforced reclaimed plastics. After five hours this robot created a 45kg giant of a speaker box, 40 mm thick all around. This rock solid structure makes the speaker completely oblivious to all the resonating energy the 12" woofer is producing. The result is a crisp and clear sound, even with the highest level of volume.
The ball or egg shaped box is not only very contemporary looking, it also allows the sound waves to radiate in an optimal way. The sound spreads in all directions, giving a mind-blowing sound experience. The inside of the speaker is ideal for eliminating standing waves due to its rough surface. This ribbon-like texture, an inevitable consequence of the production process, is perfect to mute the sound internally by scattering the soundwaves.
This highly intelligent speaker set provides you with impressive clarity, range, and sound staging in a timeless piece of design.
