HULT DESIGN PAVILION SPEAKER IS ARCHITECTURAL AUDIO


May 05, 2016

Los Angeles based Hult Design’s Pavilion is an object of beauty which also happens to be a Bluetooth speaker. Constructed with a combination of concrete, coiled copper, and an oak top, the cylindrical speaker’s design is a showpiece display of technology, meant to be seen as much as heard.

Bluetooth connectivity means the Pavilion Speaker is compatible with nearly any modern mobile device – Android, iOS, Windows, OS X.

Beyond its eye-catching aesthetics, the copper coil displayed behind a clear polycarbonate window operates to “warm up” bass frequencies, while the hefty concrete base reduces vibrations and tip-overs. In combination, the 10.22″ tall speaker takes on an architectural presence or the appearance of an industrial sculpture.

Specifications include a 20W full-range Peerless transducer, Bluetooth connectivity with APTx Support, the ability to pair two Pavilion Speakers into stereo mode, and wired connectivity via 3.5mm AUX Port. A varnished oak wood top with touch-capacitive playback controls brings warmth to the otherwise cooler architectural surfaces and materials.

When untethered from a power source, the Pavilion is rated for 4-5 hours of playback in battery mode at medium volume allowing it be repositioned around the home when needed.

The Pavilion Speaker is available in either a black or white finish for a Kickstarter price of $229, with availability projected for May 2016.
