Contemporary design elevated
This speaker was handcrafted by blacksmith Jonas Majors in his workshop on the island of Mörkö south of Stockholm. The Steel Speaker is a heavy beast of 20 kilograms. It is supposed to manifest the power of our big speaker acoustic platform by its mere presence. The electronic appliance industry seems many times over crowded by black boxes. Therefore we saw it as our challenge to make the black box into a sculptural piece of craft that elevates a contemporary designed interior rather than violating it.
Appearance and assembly
We appreciate the raw metal texture of aged steel, and in this collection Jonas will actually find and repurpose material from various sources. The metal is then forged and cut to the right geometry, before it is welded, polished and blackened. Even though the look is rough, it takes a lot of skill and dedication to meet the demands of precision from both appearance and assembly. This is a raw piece of handcraft merging with modern technology. To us this is a tamed beast.
The Steel Speaker can be seen and heard live at Perspective Studio showroom opening soon in Stockholm.
About Jonas Majors
Jonas has his smith on Mörkö, about an hour south of Stockholm. In front of large fields and among old woods, he works with metal in old and new ways. He mastered the old techniques that are often used to forge various decorative and functional details in iron, brass or copper, but he also works with modern techniques such as welding or computer controlled plasma cutting. Jonas has learned for a long time the characteristics of the metal, and he appreciates projects that allow him to stretch a little on the normal limits, that allow him to apply his knowledge in new areas.
