the sound objects were born whilst pierre charrié were playing with the codes of musical instruments and was first presented due to eyes on talents, a digital platform that connects the creative talents with design-led brands.. the buzzer that is attached to the rear of each panel allows sound to play without the need for a speaker. fabricated from maple plywood, they are shaped in a press mold, with the slight curve giving the piece stability, rigidity and lightness for optimum sound quality. depending on their size, the surfaces allow the amplification of high frequencies, midrange or bass. each surface plays the partition of a different instrument, reproducing the listening conditions of an acoustic set.
