About

We are a small team of industrial designers. We set out wanting to explore the world of sounds using an innovative and challenging approach to produce design creations and pieces. We are questioning in an unusual and original way the relationship between visual and audio data, as well as the aspects of visibility of electronics.

Alma sound offers an intuitive user experience thanks to its bluetooth sound system with integrated amplifier. You have to set down Alma, plugged it in and turn the volume on.

sound

 We use the Surface exciter technology, based on an electronic device that plays sound through vibration. As opposite to a classic amplifying system, the sound exciter technology allows solid-transmitted vibrations, which means that sound is transmitted through material and not air.  

The quality of sound is controlled through the material used as mount.  

We had the opportunity to make ALMA sound as a research study. We were exploring ideas for how we could improve the soud experience. How to create a new sound experience, simpler, closer, and engaging at home? There is a huge number of sound speakers in the market today but none of them fit the bill for us. We wanted something different. We want to offer a new sound experience to everybody, everywhere. 

6 months of development and a lot of prototypes, we were finally happy with the design and how it worked. 

With our links to manufacturers it wasn't long before we got our first production samples. 6 months from having the initial idea, we have finally made it to Kickstarter and can't wait to get Alma into your hands. 

Risks and challenges

The products shown here are individual prototypes. Depending on production volumes the actual design of the product may vary slightly.

To mitigate risks, a large amount of up front prototyping to validate the design has been undertaken. We'll work extremely hard to deliver the product to you in Juily 2018. Throughout and after the campaign we'll keep you regularly updated so you'll always know what's going on.

Thank you.
