Joey Roth Releases Ceramic Speakers – Aesthetic Sound System
Joey Roth, an industrial designer from San Francisco, has created a Ceramic Speaker system for digital music players. Roth designs products to articulate the beauty of everyday rituals. He combines simple functionality with honest, unfinished materials that become more personal as they take on a patina of use.
The Ceramic Speakers connect directly to iPods and other digital music players to form an elegant, minimal music system. They also connect directly to computers, laptops, turntables and televisions, providing an improvement, sonically and aesthetically over built-in speakers.
The Ceramic Speakers are made from porcelain, cork, and Baltic birch. Each material is minimally finished, left to add its natural beauty to the design. The included amplifier is made from stainless steel sheet metal, with a cast iron base and paulownia volume slider. Aside from the electronic components, plastic is completely avoided in the system’s construction.
