Stone is a desktop riser that mimics the form of stones with smooth asymmetry and ergonomic-driven dimensions to impart the tranquility of zen gardens. Bluetooth speakers and a subwoofer that mimics stones are also incorporated to create a more melodic atmosphere for the audio afficianado. Taking advantage of up-to-date metal manufacturing techniques, the majority of stone is die cast aluminum combined with cnc treated white maple wood. Fabric is lined around the speakers and subwoofer tops to create a softer aesthetic. The final design also incorporates a ceramic pot to incorporate a sense of nature. The more distanced drive units allow a stronger sound dispersion.

This project is a collaboration between industrial designers Aziz Alsanousi, Tiffany Huang, Amy Jones, Tom Rouine, and Ken Macalino
