Neue Werkstatt NW3 Sustainable Speakers: Woody Goodness

 |  |  |  |  June 17, 2013

Wood is the go-to material when you design speaker enclosures, and these new ones from Neue Werkstatt (German for “new factory”) really let the natural look of wood shine through.

The NW3 speakers are each made by a small carpenters workshop in Germany. The wood used is sustainably-harvested pine, and the interior insulation is made out of a natural wool batting. Surfaces are finished with a solvent-free stain and natural wax, letting the natural woodgrain really stand out. The audio components inside the enclosure come from Danish audio company Peerless.

I haven’t had a chance to listen to the NW3s yet, but I definitely like their style. They look very natural, and offer a nice accent for modern interiors.
