Jack Speaker by Ben Wahrlich

Posted on November 30th, 2012 by

Jack Speaker is a minimal design created by Australia-based designer Ben Wahrlich. Jack is a stand alone speaker individually hand crafted from concrete and wood, giving it a unique combination of raw individuality and increased sound quality. At first the design appears simple and subtle, but upon closer inspection reveals a highly technical construction method: A complete rethink of the moulding process adopting modern materials, allows a single part line hidden from view underneath the cylinder.

Jack Speaker is a minimal design created by Australia-based designer Ben Wahrlich. Jack is a stand alone speaker individually hand crafted from concrete and wood, giving it a unique combination of raw individuality and increased sound quality. At first the design appears simple and subtle, but upon closer inspection reveals a highly technical construction method: A complete rethink of the moulding process adopting modern materials, allows a single part line hidden from view underneath the cylinder.

This gives the face and top of the cylinder a seamless transition between surfaces, while also allowing a slight taper to the rear. A cutout section has been designed into the cylinder to house the crossbar, which pierces the concrete, slightly lifting the speaker to project the sound outward. This crossbar also acts as a sound dampener to reduce vibration.
