New design encourages listeners to experiment with the acoustics of different objects to manipulate sound quality.

Casey Lin, an Industrial Design student, has reinvented the glossy hi-tech speaker by repurposing wood and glass. Lin's ‘Timbre Speakers‘ utilizes the acoustic properties of wood and glass to create a beautifully simple speaker.

The set-up is purposefully built to create sounds of different timbre. It is made from walnut wood and has only a single black knob. It works like a regular speaker which users can connect their smartphones to, but it is also built to use regular household objects as vessels through which sound can vibrate to create new aural spins on your favorite music.
