Sonora

A wireless music speaker controlled solely with gestures. Sonora is designed to challenge the predominantly visual paradigm of digital interaction. It has no buttons or displays. Instead, the interface is tangible. It is based on instincts common to all of us and inspired by how we use everyday objects, especially those devoid of any kind of technology.

A metal-spun aluminum part, reminiscent of a gramophone pavilion, houses the electronics. The soundbox is bounded by a transparent cover, allowing the object to seem ethereal and delicate. All the components stack vertically on top of a machine-milled aluminum disc, a single element that binds all the parts together.
