MAZE inspired by the gramophone.
Salute to the good old days, the design is using semi-transparent vinyl record like deco plate with a metal slider that simulates the tone arm.
By making the old school concept looks more styled and graphically clean, MAZE represents the target user group of yuppie, simplistic yet high efficiency, using the best elements from the past with an injection of the modern elements.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Visible through the semi-transparent panel are the cool elements of the patented maze shape design that inspired by phonograph cylinder. It is not about the outlook, but functionally enhancing the acoustic and providing the extra-ordinary high fidelity sound. It provides a very special Live! sound to allow the audience a unique on-stage concert audio, which should only be available with the amplified system from the concert hall.
