PAVILION WIRELESS SPEAKER
- PAVILION PROTOTYPE SOUND TEST
<Audio was recorded from 0.5m distance>
Pavilion is a high-performance wireless speaker with an innovative modern design. We scrambled different materials with an existing speaker structure to redefine it to a beautiful piece of art. Pavilion sets a new paradigm in a speaker design, delivering amazing performance and fascinating experience.
- DESIGNING PAVILION
We tried to disconnect ourselves from old clichés and make an original approach from different perspectives. Our team looked through some of the greatest modern architectures designed by Mies van der Rohe, Ando Tadao, and Frank Lloyd Wright. We studied how these architectures were constructed with modern materials and designs.
In the process of designing the speaker, we were captivated by the attractive curves and a glossy finish of brass instruments. We studied the instrument's curvature and integrated it to our spiral copper port design. The spiral inside the clear wall is breathtaking and makes it attractive from 360 degrees.
Speaker base is made with a high-density concrete used in modern architectures. The base firmly holds the speaker in place preventing acoustic loss from any vibration. The elegant surface finish goes smoothly with the surrounding flow.
The varnished oak top of the speaker is handcrafted with the finest oaks from North America. Subtle waves of the grain and the deep color translate to state of tranquility. Oak surface senses user’s touch for the speaker control. The touch is pleasing even during the short seconds of control.
- PAVILION SOUND SYSTEM
- D-SPIRAL ACOUSTIC
<Sound Velocity Simulation>
Spiral copper pipe inside the clear case is not just for the design. The pipe boosts the bass frequencies by the principles of acoustic resonance. We shaped it like no other to give Pavilion its unique look while improving the performance.
- WIRELESS CONNECTION & STEREO MUSIC
Playing music and pairing two Pavilions is simple. Pavilion is compatible with iPhone, Android, and any other devices with the Bluetooth function.
- FULL DYNAMIC RANGE DRIVER
We are using high quality 20W Peerless transducer for the best acoustic quality. We designed the cabinet to make the frequency response as flat as possible replicating unbiased sound. Boomy bass, bright treble might temporarily spice up the sound, but ears get tired after long listening with these alteration.
- FUNCTION DEMONSTRATION(FIRST PROTOTYPE)
<The design of working sample is different from the final version of Pavilion>
- TOUCH CONTROL
Capacitive touch control is on top of the speaker. Simply touch the oak surface to pair a device, play/pause music, and adjust a volume. LED Indicator on the top shows you the current status of Pavilion.
- POWER AND PORT
Three rounds are behind the back. A power button to turn-on the Pavilion; Aux port for hooking up MP3 players, classic CD players, and other wired devices; AC adapter port for charging.
PAVILION Q (LIMITED)
Pavilion Q is the high-end version of Pavilion. The additional finish in the design takes the uniqueness of Pavilion a step further.
There is a copper accent around the waist and the top control buttons. Its glossiness and light reflection makes the speaker luxurious. All these parts are hand carved and polished with precision. The quantity is limited because It takes much more time to build each parts.
Pavilion Q uses same technical parts that are used by Pavilion. It uses 20W Full-Range Peereless Transducer, D-Spiral Acoustic, Bluetooth Connection, Wireless Stereo Pairing, Rechargeable Battery, Touch Control on American White Oak and Aux Port.
Pavilion Q is another piece of architecture inside your home and the design is simple yet sophisticated. Innovative engineering makes the speaker even more beautiful.

How the Pledge will be used
Risks and challenges
We went through a tough time in the last campaign. but it definitely made us stronger and more prepared. All of the manufacturing process has been setup. The work flow from raw materials to shipping has been organized and synced.
Our main concern is the schedule. We have done both simulations and tried out some processes to predict the realistic timeline that is not too far. Setting up injection molds and PCB fabrication line was reviewed thoroughly, so there won't be an abrupt stop to this campaign. But, it's difficult to know the quality of some sub-parts until the actual pieces comes out. Therefore, we plan to make a quick delivery mold(QDM), which can be used as a test mold before going into a production. QDM will cost us extra, but It's a good insurance for both quality and schedule.
