stunning design and detailing. definitely on my to-buy list! m.
meizu’s ’gravity’ by hironao tsuboi is a wireless speaker with a deceiving floating body and display while continuously providing high quality sound from a small package. what stands out the most, is the heads-up screen prism the creates the illusion of floating above the ground.
‘the concept of ‘missing design’ is to reduce the boundary and existence of an object and to blur the edges of such object, which helps the object fit in with the environment,’ explains hironao tsuboi. ‘as in gravity, the smart use of prism helps reduce the outlines of the screen, letters and symbols. as a result, music information seems to be floating in mid air. the design as a whole aims to help users forget about gravity, but keep the sense of balance.’
the small-sized speaker uses a complex optical reflection formula to present the album art and track information. meizu partnered with dirac to accumulate 20 years of experience for an ultimate acoustic experience. ‘gravity’ encompasses an amplifier and is paired with a dual passive resonance membrane for a more vigorous low-frequency output.
