Timbre Speaker: the Bare Minimal Essence of a Speaker

The Timbre Speaker is an interestingly designed speaker: it offers the bare minimum while letting the materials it is made from -- glass and wood -- enhance "the audio experience of the user." It is the brainchild Casey Lin, a designer from Wellington, New Zealand.

Surface transducers are mounted on the interior of the wooden box, vibrating the surface and turning the box into a speaker. The glass vessels act as physical equalizers, where the vibrations transfer through the wood into the glass and changes the timbre of the sound. The wooden box can act as a standalone speaker, or alternatively, vessels of other material, size or shape can be placed on the speaker to change the sound according to the users taste.
