WHO IS IT ABOUT? WHAT IS IT ABOUT?My name is Christopher Dormoy. You probably My concept is therefore based on industrial de-know me best as a designer and art director in sign. It involves coming up with an innovativethe online world and in print, but perhaps also and original design for a loudspeaker that is un-as a 3D designer. My first steps in the art world derpinned by nature, organic shapes, and a desirewere in industrial design in France, where I stu- to experiment.died fine arts. The project is called Liquisound. Liquid is behind the idea and the very essence of the concepts I am presenting. My aim is to enter into a partnership with Sid Lee for the artistic side of things and with a well- known Quebec audio company for the technical side of things. WHY? I have been fascinated by all things audio for as long as I can remember and have always dreamed of having the chance to design bold, original, and powerful speakers. For years, I have sought to integrate organic shapes into my designs. Liquid is a natural, simple, and pure element. It is an outstanding starting point for all kinds of 2D, 3D, and cinematic designs. In my eyes, using liquid to design speakers is highly innovative and represents a step forward in the design of acoustic sources. LIQUISOUND - 7 -
WHAT IS IT? Imagine liquid chrome being poured over two sus- pended spheres—then letting gravity do the rest. The liquid forms the base of the speaker, a con- cept that could spawn models of varying shapes and sizes.LIQUISOUND LIQUISOUND - 8 - - 9 -
WHAT IS IT? Gravity creates a world of beautiful shapes in nature. The speaker design is inspired by the most basic representation of water as it feels the pull of gravity. With its base on top, this speaker goes against the concept of the object always resting on the ground. The speaker has a number of diaphragms for maximum sound.LIQUISOUND LIQUISOUND - 14 - - 15 -
WHAT IS IT? This concept is based on the optical illusion of a spherical speaker turning a wall to liquid as it is propelled through it. The splash can be painted to match the wall for greater optical effect. The size of the speaker may vary from the small- est satellite style to the largest frontal style.LIQUISOUND LIQUISOUND - 18 - - 19 -
IN CONCLUSIONThese various speaker designs are only a hand-ful of examples summoned from my imagina-tion. The aim is to create something that reflectshow I look at this everyday object, while givingSid Lee a chance to provide input. I am familiarwith the artistic avenues Sid Lee seeks to explore,and would be delighted to add my ideas to thecreative mix.
