Hannes Harms Flat Boombox
Hannes Harms is a masters student at London’s famed Royal College of Art. The german born designer has designed this amazing flat and thin Boombox. “A small speaker which incorporates future technology focused on flat electrical components by using 0.5mm thin stainless steel, its volume and material are highly reduced, making the methods for the manufacturing
process in consumer electronics more sustainable. With acid-etching, the sheet of stainless steel is cut and engraved extremely precisely, allowing for 100% recyclability due to its extractive process. The shape of the product also allows for efficient shipping, enabling the use of envelope style packaging. Once purchased, the user would assemble the speaker by bending the metal along pre-scored lines.”
This is another great prototype we need to see in production!
