They bring meaning to your life
Take pride in them

OUR VISION

Deeptime combines useful, beautiful and unique. We create objects that find their roots in nature. Studying organic and geometric forms of nature, searching for a way to give expression to these forms in product design.

Deeptime implements functions found in nature rather than just imitating biological structures. Our vision is inspired by a combination of biomimetics, design engineering and applied science.

Bringing these three worlds together results in meaningful elegant design solutions, which have been seamlessly engineered by nature. Whatever we are going to design, we will follow these principles.

Apart from the speaker drivers, all the electronics are sourced locally to oversee our supply chain. Each device is tested prior to shipping and signed by our audio engineer.


HOW THE BUSINESS STARTED?

Deeptime s.r.o was formed in April 2018 but began actively developing the speakers in early 2014 under the former Akemake brand. Following a successful exposure of the initial wooden Spirula speaker prototypes in 2014 and the positive feedback, the founders realised the potential of the concept and started working on a production version.

Since 2014, the company has re-branded to Deeptime and relocated from the United Kingdom into premises in Bushtehrad, Czech Republic, transformed the original concept into a real lifestyle audio system. Over the years, Deeptime manufactured over fifty different speaker prototypes to validate the acoustic performance, hardening and assembly process.
