“reducing material, volume and components through flat electronics”
The final outcome of this project is a boombox-speaker, that houses a flat speaker component.
For this speaker I decided to focus on the idea of the flatness of future electrical components.
I wanted to reduce manufacturing processes as well as material and volume.
This speaker is made out of a flat sheet of 0.5mm stainless steel, holding a flat speaker component in place.
The sheet of stainless steel is cut through acid-etching, a process that enables an incredibly precise cutting and engraving of metals.
This way the shipping volume is limited to a flat envelop-fitting package.
Once received by the user, the flat sheet can be easily bent in scored lines as a home assembly.
