Luis Branco is a product and furniture designer from Viana do Castelo, Portugal. While checking Behance for some inspiration I ended up in his profile page and was amazed by his work, especially the consoles, sideboard and cabinets that share a beautiful and modern look.
A couple days ago, we stumbled across an image while putting together a Daily Design Inspiration for you guys. It pinged our curiosity and after a little research, we discovered it was a new product from Grovemade and it's called the Maple Speakers made entirely of wood and metal components.
A collaboration with Joey Roth who is quite a "connaisseur" when it come to speakers. Assembled in Portland, Oregon, the team at Grovemade produced a beautiful product that is authentic in material that will age in a variation of colour and wood grain. Also comes with a sound of a back-loaded horn to reinforce the speaker's bass response. This speaker is a mixture of an experienced craftsmanship with what would come out best of wood.
We collaborated with industrial designer Joey Roth to create a speaker system that could only exist with our unique approach to product and his experience in audio design.
Usually when I do my audio simulations I have to compromise to make it buildable. But working with the Grovemade guys, the simulations became the final geometry. - Joey Roth
