The Taiwan Acacia is used for the base of the black bird cages The Speaker: JinGoo features a mono 2-way speaker, the low frequency woofer speaker is positioned in the base structure and its sound waves are reflected by the ceramic tail of the bird.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Bird keeping is a ritual in traditional Chinese culture and these bird cages are commonly seen as part of home decor. The owners, enjoying a carefree and abundant lifestyle, would take their birds in cages for strolls in early mornings and admire the bird's songs while writing and reciting poetry. We hope to bring back this leisurly lifestyle to urban homes and its inhabitants that live daily in haste and under pressures.

CHALLENGE:
The most difficult part of the design is the combination of multiple material, including ceramic, metal, wood and plastic. We hope to incorporate uniquely local materials and culture into our work even when it is for the design of electronic products. Each JinGoo is put together and brought to life by warm and caring hands.
