MODAL water speaker

Japanese sound space designer Kunihiro Tsuji will be presenting his MODAL Water Speaker at this year's Milano Design Week. The speaker system transmits sound via a resonance box filled with water. Tsuji was inspired by the human body, which is 70% water. "The loudspeaker is placed on top of the water surface as though floating. Its drop-shaped, transparent cone integrates in the aesthetic concept of the MODAL Water Speaker. The audio cable runs invisibly inside of one of the [support] legs and connects the MODAL Water Speaker to any kind of amplifier."
