Winning an iF Design award is no easy feat, especially when entrants are placed in a category alongside renowned names, visionaries, and teams. The world of high-end, in-home audio is especially competitive, with well-known companies like Harman Kardon participating somewhat regularly. The outfit’s newest project, a speaker known as the Aura Studio 3, is its most recent award-winning platform.
Upon first glance, it’s immediately apparent why the Harman Kardon Aura Studio 3 has been bestowed with one of iF’s most prestigious design awards. It’s sleek, elegant, and original, taking on the form of a rounded, futuristic enclosure. Aside from its utilization of 360-degree audio, ambient interior lighting, and an immersive speaker/subwoofer setup that promises unrivaled sound quality, the speaker also makes a striking aesthetic statement. When in use, its internal lighting moves, sways, and ripples, mirroring the waveforms of its audible medium with dynamic visuals to complement your favorite tracks.
