Nacsound Modern Speakers Belong in a Gallery

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  June 8, 2008


I have a tendency to prefer my sound systems to be heard, not seen. After all, isn’t it all about the audio? But I recently came across a speaker line that even the most ardent of design snobs would be proud to put in their living rooms.

Italy’s Nacsound has created a line of speakers which look like something you’d find in a contemporary art museum (or at least a high-end furniture store). From the tabletop Omni (shown above), to the ceiling-to-floor suspended Kayak (shown below), Nacsound isn’t kidding around when it comes to their daring modern aesthetic.

Nacsound’s crafts the svelte speaker enclosures from materials such as clay or aluminum, then covers them with bold finishes including reflective copper, shiny platinum, blue/gold patina, matte graphite and black. The speakers themselves are made from innovative materials such as ceramics, aluminum and silk to produce room-filling omnidirectional sound.

Another speaker in the line is the elegant, minimal Zemi ceramic orb speaker which can be either hung from a ceiling cable or placed on a tabletop in a matching base. Luscious.

Of course, this kind of style never comes cheap. Nacsound speakers range from about $1,000 to $4,500 each. If your Italian isn’t particularly molto bene, North American distributor Sonance has English languageĀ  product information up on their website.
