Celina Portable Speaker by Kain Kerkhove

Home > Winners > #87625


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Celina

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Portable Speaker

INSPIRATION:
The speaker is designed in my personal style which consists of blending together natural and man made materials. This in combination with rounded corners and soft edges to create an interesting emotion. Light is also a big factor that was taken in account, this to create a soft/fading feeling that compliments the fabric.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Place it anywhere and let it blend in and stand out. The combination of woven wool and textured aluminium generate a visually stunning look and a feel of luxury. The slit functions as a 360 degree bass output and plays with the light making an appearance that the top cover is floating. A ring molds around the upper part and flows down from the center gap to the underside of the speaker creating a feeling of entirety.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Press the power to turn the speaker on or off. Holding this button will prepare the speaker to pair with a new device. Press Volume up or down to adjust the speakers volume. Press Forward or Backward to cycle through songs. Plugging in an Aux will change the speakers mode from Bluetooth to Aux. Removing the Aux will change the mode back to Bluetooth. The battery status and charging level is indicated by the leds on the back.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Project start: February 2019 Project deadline: June 2019 Location: Howest University Of Applied Sciences Belgium

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Digital and Electronic Devices Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
ABS plastic is used to hold the internals and fabric together with clips that make the assembly easy and short. This shell will be manufactured with injection molding techniques. The ring that wraps around the speaker is made of stamped sheet metal. The upper part is made of milled aluminium and then finished off with a textured powder coat.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
170 mm x 90 mm x 84 mm

TAGS:
Portable Speaker, Music, Howest, Bluetooth Speaker, Belgium

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The research of this speaker was very different than the ones of my other products as this had to be fully in line with my personal style. The startup consisted of finding out what fits my identity and associates with my interests. First off by determining what materials fit my style and vision, then by experimenting with shapes that reflect light in a certain way and surfaces that express a certain mood.

CHALLENGE:
To make the product in your own style as a junior designer means finding yourself and determining what your values are. It isn't' just the shape that counts. It's the emotion, the statement, the choice of material that makes a style unique and bonding to a designer.
