So what do you get when you put together a brilliant professional prop builder and the love of creating techie stuff? Stunning speaker systems, that’s what, if you happen to be Richard Grant.
Most likely you wouldn’t be familiar with his name, although you might have already seen some of the fruits of his labor in feature films like Alice in Wonderland, TRON, Imaginarium of Dr.Parnassus, and Band of Brothers, to name a few.
His new venture is creating something you can own, use, and display, right in your very own home: his Fidelity-sound speaker systems.
Some of the designs featured on his site are the Ghanaian Ancestor Mask, the Droid, and an Italian Portraiture. Most of these speakers are special order so you’d have to contact Grant directly via email to set up the purchase.
Only the Ghanaian Ancestor Mask speaker has been set with a price, tagged at around $1,200 (USD) per pair plus an extra $150 for shipping.
The prices are pretty steep, but you can also view these speakers as a work of art to justify the price. That, plus the fact that they’re all designed and made by a renowned professional propsman.
