Woofer Chair by Ministry of Design for Saporiti Italia
Description from Saporiti Italia:
An original and innovative chair, inspired by the form of a loudspeaker and coupled with technology that allows for sound waves to vibrate throughout the seat, consenting the user to hear and even to feel the audio spectrum, thanks to sophisticated sound actuators hidden inside the fibreglass structure of the chair. The Woofer Chair eliminates the space between music and listener – creating a fully immersive soundscape. As a chair, a woofer, or the confluence of the two, the Woofer Chair’s subtle duality is captured in its form – a “driver” that produces sound encased in a “cabinet” – the soft ergonomic inner portion tightly stretched over the hard fibreglass outer shell. Its sheer size gives gravitas to the low bass resonances while the tapering of its sides to mere millimetres is a nod to the treble timbres. Beyond its precise clarity of form, the Woofer Chair can also be uniquely customized to capture a myriad of aesthetic preferences. The basic square canvas surrounding the centre seat is designed to be re-shaped and cladded, creating endless aesthetic iterations whilst maintaining the Woofer Chair’s fundamental design and structure.
