diplomates amplifies the sounds of the runway with a towering timber speaker

in the background of menswear brand OAMC’s SS18 show at paris fashion week, behind the models stood a giant wooden contraption, created in order to amplify the sound of the runway. it was designed and handcrafted by the design firm diplomates, a pluri-disciplinary studio based between athens and paris that works across the fields of architecture, design and visual art.

according to vogue, earplugs were provided with the invitation to the runway event for OAMC. interestingly, diplomates’ humongous speaker does the opposite of muting volume — it creates a tunnel of sound, as well as a literal tunnel due to its mammoth scale. timber slats are organized and arranged in an almost conical shape that both draws in and feeds out of the venue.
