swift creatives reveals ‘sheet’ speaker, developed to envision the smart speakers of tomorrow. sheet combines the premium audio offering of high-end speakers with the convenience provided by the voice assistant consumer experience. with its design inspired by both professional music equipment and scandinavian furniture, the piece fits seamlessly into the home whilst still emphasizing the quality of its sound capabilities.

the 12.8 cm slim, 1 m high and super premium sheet incorporates tangible interfaces, a thing of the past in the smart speaker market, as swift believes they add to the user experience. a slider on the top corner of the speaker can be controlled either manually, via the app or through voice command to change the volume. this interface was inspired by sliders in music studio mixing desks.

 

 

the aptly named speaker’s appearance is much like that of a sheet of fabric, leaning casually against a wall or balanced on the floor, similar to many scandinavian products for the home. however, when playing music, the front of the speaker transforms — a circular area around the woofer extends outwards by nearly an inch to make room for its oscillations and to enhance the sound. the active area is also further highlighted by a subtle ring of light.
