THE SOUND OF WHERE WE’RE FROM

Ionic stands for fundamental. For the foundations of thought, geometry and music. Ancient Ionian philosophers advanced geometry and mathematics, inspired by the shapes they saw in nature. From the Sphinx of Naxos to the United States Capitol, civilization rests on the spiral volutes of Ionic columns. The resemblance to the ammonite shells found in the Ionian Sea seems less than accidental. It is no wonder then, that the major musical scale defining the western understanding of music is also called the Ionic mode.

All the dots connect.

 
 

MADE TO
LOOK & SOUND
GREAT

The textured sand gives the enclosures a very distinct look and feel. The weight and density of the material, reinforced by custom-made hardener, prevents unwanted frequencies. Every speaker is made from a single piece with no visible split lines or bolts holding the enclosures together. This is achieved through additive manufacturing techniques. As a welcome side effect, this creates visible surface layers resembling the exposed lines of sedimentary rocks. Think Grand Canyon, Hunstanton Cliffs or the tectonic plates.

The material and the method are the perfect match for both sound and aesthetics.

SPIRULA
SPEAKERS

Passive satellite speakers 3D printed from sand
Limited edition of 1618 pairs


If there is such a thing as a perfect shape, it’s the golden spiral. A twin to the golden ratio, this sacred geometry manifests throughout nature. Yet the organic form always follows function. Nothing in nature is superficial. The spiral-shaped cochleae present in the human ear greatly extends the range of frequencies and octaves we can hear. Nature’s perfect shape enables humans to deeply appreciate the most magical thing we have ever created – music.

The design of the Spirula speakers is based on this principle.

INTELLIGENT DESIGN

The evolution of the Spirula speakers took years of research.
Optimized for high efficiency, the speakers deliver pristine sound without carrying any unnecessary weight. When placed on a table, the speakers send sound directly to a seated listener’s ears. These speakers are as sleek as it gets.

The tapered interior surface is entirely rounded with no flat surfaces. This ensures that any vibration produced by the driver does not get reflected toward the listener, guaranteeing audio clarity. 

Spirula speakers are driven by three-inch full range speakers with highly accurate sounding bamboo fiber cones. The fiber is tough but flexible, able to withstand high volumes and absorb its own vibrations. The speaker cone surround is made of santoprene, an extremely light, flexible and extraordinarily durable type of polymer. Its minimal weight improves the frequency response of the speaker and high elasticity helps to reproduce lower resonant frequencies. 

THUNDERSTONE
SUBWOOFER

 

Active subwoofer with deep bass power

For millennia thunder was the deepest sound that humans heard. A mysterious cosmic rumble. Mankind made the connection between the flash of light and the rumbling sound. The rest was gods and magic.

Some thought that when lightning hit the ground it turned into stone. So throughout Africa, Europe and Asia prehistoric flint arrowheads and axes found in plowed fields were thought to have fallen from the sky. In England and Denmark, it was Sea Urchin fossils that became synonymous with the thunder legends. Anything unknown or understood was thought to be magical before The Enlightenment. People are still trying to understand. Striving to reproduce the deepest sound they ever experienced, to give the strange emotions that music brings clear and full forms. So are we.

Thunderstone is part that process. Part magic.

THE LIGHT IN THE DEEP

The Thunderstone delivers incredible power in a compact form. Through a holistic design process, we’ve arrived at the most efficient driver, shape and overall proportions for a pristine and rich bass sound. The shape is inspired by the fossils of black sea urchins, with the height and diameter in the golden ratio.

Mimicking deep-sea bioluminescent creatures, each bass port also contains an LED light source. A subtle amber light indicates when the subwoofer is plugged in and gently brightens as the volume increases.

THE BASS TRINITY

The trilateral symmetry is a crucial part of the design. The shape allows for three bass ports. The advantage of multiple ports is partly in the reduced size of the individual ports, each 1.618 inches in diameter. More importantly, the form can contain much longer resonant tubes than single port or rectangular shell can.

A trident of round tipped spikes carries the weight of Thunderstone. Their purpose is to minimize the area the speaker touches. The less contact the subwoofer has with the surface below, the fewer vibrations pass between the two.

 

TURN IT UP

 

The two volume control rings on top of the Thunderstone are magnetic Hall Effect sensors. Standard controls have the tendency to crackle, hum or break, but the Hall sensors are, by design almost indestructible and will perform flawlessly for decades. Made out of anodized aluminum, they serve as an additional passive cooler for the built-in highly effective d-class amplifier, which makes them slightly warm and a pleasure to the touch. The external ring adjusts the bass, the internal ring controls the volume of the entire Ionic Sound System.
