What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About this project

 

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.

 

Overview

 

Play Music Wirelessly

With built-in Bluetooth functionalities, the Sound Table allows you to play music from any compatible device you have on hand.

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 Table.

 

Relax with Ambient Sounds

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.

Get Weather Notifications

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 Sound Table.

 

Power Your Electronic Devices

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 enjoyment.

 

Innovations of the Sound Table

Next 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 quality sound.

 

Integrated 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.

Affordable Price

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.

Team

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 products.

 

As Featured In

 

Risks and challenges

MANUFACTURING

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.

TRANSPORTATION
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.

PRODUCT ADJUSTMENTS
The Sound Table is a product that is the first of its kind worldwide, combining furniture, audio, and IT. In order to deliver a product which offers the best of all three worlds and that backers will be satisfied with, we may continue to fine tune the product until it is ready to ship. We will strive to keep backers updated regarding any adjustments made in a timely manner so that backers can stay informed. Backers are also more than welcome to provide us with any feedback via the Community. We wish to create a fantastic product together with the feedback and support of all backers, so let us work together to make this project a success!
