What is the Sound Table?
The Sound Table is a table designed to play
music and clear space for relaxation and comfort.
KAMARQ was founded upon the mission to create
“space” for comfortable living by tastefully combining objects and functions necessary to
everyday life. We designed the Sound Table as a solution to the overwhelming
clutter of objects and information in today’s world. By elegantly combining two
items necessary to any home - a table and a speaker - your home becomes that
much more spacious and infinitely more enjoyable.
At home parties with friends and family, add
some pleasant music to the appetizing rows of dishes. Home alone? Put on a
melody and let your thoughts run free to territories unexplored. There are
countless ways to enjoy the Sound Table - your imagination is the only limit.

With built-in Bluetooth functionalities, the
Sound Table allows you to play music from any compatible device you have on
Use the mobile app to control the Sound Table
right from your phone. Add songs to your playlist, mark your favorite tunes,
and set them to play at any time you like, in any order you like.
Imagine waking up to your favorite melodies in
the morning and coming home to the songs you love in the evening. That’s just
the beginning of how much more enjoyable your life could be with the Sound
Relax with Ambient
When you just need something calming to play
in the background, put on one of the 10 ambient tracks built into the Sound
Table. Listen to the water of a gently flowing stream, the crackling of a
bonfire, or the pleasant chirping of birds, and become one with nature from the
comfort of your home.
Input your location information on the mobile
app, and the Sound Table will notify you of changes in weather via pleasant
sounds. Wondering when the best time to head out is? You’ll know when a
rainstorm hits and when it clears from indoors thanks to notifications from the
Power Your Electronic
The Sound Table combines more than just table
and speaker; it gets rid of those messy power cords, too. With a power outlet
and USB hub at the side of the tabletop, you can charge your phone, your
laptop, or even power your cooking appliances. And of course, you can enjoy
music at the same time, too. Less clutter, more convenience, and more
Innovations of the Sound Table
Generation Flat Panel Speaker Technology
The Sound Table isn’t just a table with a built-in speaker - the table itself is the speaker. Integrated into the tabletop are two state-of-the-art
diaphragms which emit sound by producing oscillations throughout the entire
tabletop. That’s why the cones and grills of ordinary speakers are nowhere to
be found on the surface of the table. On the outside, the Sound Table looks
just like your standard table, with a clean and simple design.
Will my coffee cup rattle, though? No. The
Sound Table offers a sound experience that fills the entire room without
creating even a single ripple in your coffee. No uncomfortable vibrations, just
Gateway for Better Sound and Network Connectivity
The outstanding sound quality and network
connectivity features of the Sound Table are the result of a cutting-edge
integrated gateway, newly developed from the very circuit board.
The Sound Table overcomes the weaknesses of
conventional diaphragms at higher and lower frequencies using an audio
amplifier, capacitors, and fine-tuning adjustments via a software equalizer.
The result? Smooth, quality sound output at any table size.
With mobile network connectivity and Bluetooth
functionalities, the Sound Table allows you to enjoy music wirelessly and use
functions which require an internet connection.
Design of the Sound Table
The Sound Table is designed by
INTENSIONALLIES, a company represented by Tei Shuwa, leading design specialist
in Japan. INTENSIONALLIES designs each of their products based on the concept
that furniture is something to be used continuously every day. By designing for
functionality and refusing to compromise on even the smallest of details, they
bring the most beautifully streamlined designs to life.
Material of the Sound Table
The Sound Table is created with carefully selected wood. White Oak veneer is used for the tabletop, and the legs are made of solid White Oak, Mahogany, or Sungkai wood, depending on the color of the table. Even without taking its additional functions into consideration, the Sound Table is a magnificent piece of furniture of incredible quality. Only FSC approved wood is used, and every possible measure has been taken to ensure that production is environmentally friendly. The MDF and PB used in the structure of the Sound Table have been approved by CARB, and are designed to reduce formaldehyde exposure.
Sizes and Colors
Even the most fantastic invention is meaningless if it isn’t available at an affordable price. That’s why we’ve reevaluated the very standards of furniture production and removed intermediaries from our distribution network. This way, we are able to offer premium furniture at a lower cost than high quality furniture on the market today.
The world’s first table with Bluetooth
speakers and mobile network capabilities was made a reality under the joint
planning and development of three professionals in their respective fields:
Wada, who has over 10 years of experience in the business of furniture
manufacturing in Indonesia, Iwakura, software specialist and audio enthusiast,
and Tei, leading industrial designer in Japan.
The Sound Table is manufactured at a factory in Indonesia managed directly by KAMARQ. This factory
serves as an OEM for leading Japanese furniture brands and produces
approximately 400,000 pieces of furniture every year. The experience and
knowledge accumulated from creating furniture which meets the strict quality
standards of Japanese corporations really shows in the quality of their

Risks and challenges
Hardware products are typically composed of various parts and require several different processes in order to manufacture. In addition, wood products such as the Sound Table usually require extra care in the management of the material. As such, in cases when parts or materials are lacking, or when issues occur in the manufacturing process, it is possible that the production schedule will experience delays. To minimize these risks, we selected an Indonesian factory that has long-time experience working with leading Japanese corporations and training to meet the strict quality standards of Japanese products for the production of the Sound Table.
Shipping to the United States will be carried out by sea. Once the products arrive at the port in the United States, they will be shipped by land to individual backers in each state. lead time from when the products are shipped from the factory is usually 3 weeks, but in the case of port and/or land congestions, customs delays and other shipping complications, more time may be required for delivery. We will strive to provide detailed information regarding the situation of shipping so that all backers can rest at ease.
