Beautiful design meets expert craftsmanship.

Not many speakers look like gorgeous decorative or sculptural objects, but this design certainly does. Created by Tokyo-based studio Nendo for Japanese homeware brand Bunaco, the wireless speaker features a blend of contemporary design and ingenious woodworking techniques. Based in Aomori, a region with an abundance of beech trees, Bunaco crafts a range of products using a special manufacturing process. The company cuts beech wood into thin 1mm-thick strips, coiling the ribbon-like material into a base that is both water-resistant and durable. This technique also minimizes distortions – a perfect solution for audio products.

The Nendo X Bunaco Wireless Speaker produces a crystal clear tone thanks to the sound absorbing qualities of beech wood. The cone shape also enhances these qualities. Designed as an omni-directional speaker with a vertical diaphragm, the speaker optimizes the spatial distribution of the sound. At the same time, it also improves the acoustics. A clear acrylic cylinder envelops the wood cone, putting the skilled craftsmanship of the Bunaco technique on display. Thus, one can listen to music while admiring the creative construction and elegance of the design. Photographs© Akihiro Yoshida.
