The Diy Giacinto Loudspeakers

View all 14 Photos

There’s a distinctive pleasure in using your hands to build something, as you not only create, but also understand the creation process from a completely new angle. Italian studio Sinestesia believes that “functionality and aesthetics are only able to generate synesthesia if multiple senses are stimulated by an interacting experience between the user and what he is touching, seeing, smelling and feeling.” The desire to make a product with a human touch lies at the foundation of the Giacinto speakers.

Made as a completely DIY product, these speakers allow the users to become directly involved in the design and assembly process, whether they are are audio aficionados or simply like the ingenious idea of making their own stereo loudspeakers. The simplified kit includes two 4ohm- 5 W speakers, a custom-made mini amplifier of 3W + 3W, cables, screws, and recycled leather skins that provide both style and functionality. The skin material has been chosen not only because it works perfectly as a soundboard, but also for its durability, strength, and flexibility. The studio offers four color options for the leather skins, twelve laser-marked textures that are meant to suit various styles of music, and a brass or stainless steel ring, which can be customized with laser engraving. A premium edition will also be available, featuring high quality Italian leather in three color tones. You can pre-order the Giacinto speakers at a reduced price on the studio’s Kickstarter page, with the first products shipped to the backers starting from October 2016. Images courtesy of Sinestesia.
