Music and art have always coexisted, and one will never be complete without the other. Taking cues from his love of music and design, Italian artisan and sound expert, Francesco Pellisari created Omni – a beautifully hand-crafted speaker with naturally stunning sound.
A masterpiece for your home just as much as it is a music device, the Omni speaker takes inspiration from nature, with its unique form based on a raindrop.
Designer Francesco Pellisari says: “I have grown up surrounded by many artistic influences and the Omni was born out of my love of technology and beautiful things. Art and music invoke powerful emotions in everyone so my vision for the Omni was to create a beautiful sound experience both visually and acoustically.”
Using patented NAC Sound Omni-Directional technology, Pellisari created these speakers to radiate sound spherically. The perfected geometric shape radiates sound waves 360 degrees from two coaxial speakers placed face to face – which allows the music to be emitted equally in all directions. You no longer have to worry about the usual positioning restrictions, as the mechanical resonance is reduced to produce a rich, natural and consistent sound almost everywhere in the installation – especially when suspended from the ceiling.
The top-notch workmanship of the hand-made speakers is also apparent. Shaped and glazed by highly skilled engineers in Italy, the sound devices are made using ceramic – which has excellent acoustic properties, producing an astounding pure sound.
With aesthetics that can be tailored to suit any interior, these sculptural speakers would make perfect additions to your million-dollar studio apartment. The Omni speaker starts from £15,000 (S$26,500) and is available from Chaplins, or can be made to order.
