Wood Tonal

2016

Wood Tonal is a speaker that does not require external energy, is ecological and has a unique aesthetic that reflects the essence of the material. This speaker is made of recycled chips of Teak wood, the cut was unique to this particular speaker and pressed with manual presses to achieve the desired square shape. It should be noted that the wood was cut and stuck in such a way that the natural veins stood out.  For the exterior finish, I used a high gloss finish based on sealant and lacquer so that the natural veins of the wood would stand out to look more colorful and bright.
