Research on current speakers
After looking through some existing speakers, I realised most of them are metallic with a techno effect to them. I decided to work with more organic shapes and materials for my phone dock. For inspiration, I turned to abstract sculptures to help with the form of my speakers.
I experimented with curves and straight edges in my ideation sketches.
Final Foam Model
My final foam model l has simple edges for a minimal and versatile design that can suit most settings.
I wanted to use organic materials for the speakers as I like the soothing effect it has when blended with other furnitures in a room as compared to man-made materials, thus I chose wood.
