Ever the minimalist, the CINOS Sonic speaker concept by Cologne design agency Frackenpohl Poulheim combines harmonious design with a redefined sound experience thanks to sonic wave technology

About this project

our challenge was to find a suitable form demanding today's design expectations and also in acoustic terms as well.

So we study a lot of material and we find always the same approche for the flatpanel design "a picture within a frame"

We could not believe that this could be the answer or a final result in terms of developing flatpanels.

Frackenpohl Poulheim Designbüro Cologne take the lead for the overall design concept.

step ONE: ... finding  a material that meets the expectations in terms of acoustic and physical characteristics. But we also had to take into account the creative aspect. "Hm not so easy" After a couple of months of intensive search we finally found a material that perfectly suits to our project.

step TWO: is now a matter on how to implement our ideas in a constructive design without achieving the same result of a simple picture frame. That was the biggest challenge for the design team. .... a few months later.... 4 designs to choose from.
