It feels like increasingly we’ve been seeing architects who honed their craft designing buildings try their hand at making consumer products. We couldn’t be happier about it. Take the new Master and Dynamic MA77 Concrete Speaker for instance.
Designed by Sir David Adjaye, the same architect behind the stunning new National Museum of African American History in Culture, this speaker makes uses of a unique set of materials to produce its stunning sound. The beautiful body is made up of a specially handcrafted and sealed concrete composite, while the 4″ woofers boast a kevlar build, the tweeters a titanium body, and the controls a special diamond cut anodized aluminum. More than just a hunk of premium materials, the speaker produces incredible tones with impressive dampening engineered into it. Like, really impressive. You can crank up the volume to 11 and the floor won’t even vibrate. That means no skipping your record if you are playing vinyl through the Aux cord, and no driving the neighbors crazy. If you’d like to stream, however, the MA770 offers both a Bluetooth 4.1 connection and an integrated Chromecast option.
