Pavilion - Wireless Speaker x D-Spiral Acoustic System
Bloom Your Space with Beautifully Designed Speaker + Innovative Sound System.
Pavilion by Hult Design
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.
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 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 show the state of tranquility. Oak surface senses user’s touch for the speaker control. The touch is pleasing even during the short seconds of control.
Spiral copper pipe inside the clear polycarbonate 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.
PLAY MUSIC WIRELESSLY
Pavilion features simple audio setup by using latest Bluetooth technology. It delivers high definition sound. Compatible with iPhone, Android and any other device with Bluetooth.
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.
Capacitive touch control is installed on top of the speaker and it allows you to simply touch the oak to turn it on, change track, and adjust volume.
LED Indicator located at front allows you to see the current status of Pavilion.
Aux input behind the speaker allows you to hook up MP3 players and classic CD players.
The universal AC 110-240V adapter powers Pavilion to play your favorite tunes.

Hult is a design startup based in Los Angeles, California. We have some of the best designers, engineers, and art specialists designing new extraordinary ideas. Our goal is to bring out new designs shifting paradigms.
WHAT IS CURRENTLY DONE
Our first sample is fully functioning right now and we have done some product tests. we have been testing the audio circuits for proper functioning and concurrently the circuit artwork is undergoing constant revisions to reduce the audio signal loss. We have sourced high quality raw materials and they are ready to be purchased for the mass production. Mechanical design is completed with mass production in mind. We are trying our best to prevent tooling modification once it's manufactured because modifications degrades the final product quality and simply doesn't look good. We have chosen the tooling factory for mass production. It is only 1 hour drive from our Korea office, so we will be able to discuss any problem on the spot.
WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE
Now this is the part where we need your support. We need help from our backers to make the high quality mass production tooling for the speaker enclosures. Using cheap, weak steels for the tooling causes fast abrasions and big tolerances. We want every backer to have the very best quality speakers. All the engineering designs have accounted the standards of FCC and CE. However, we still need a final testing at the official test center for the official certifications. After these tests, we will be able to officially deliver Pavilion right to your doors.
Risks and challenges
Unlike regular plastics, which take couple of seconds to form, concretes require several hours to cure. If the order volume gets really high, we need to prepare additional molds to prevent the production bottleneck. We calculated the quantity of molds required relative to the order volume. Therefore, depending on the campaign progress, we will control the mold quantity from the early stage for the seamless production.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
