Sculptural Speakers

Hand crafted in Italy, no two are alike but all sound amazing— and most people never know they are speakers.

These sound sculptures are based upon a new approach to sound diffusion, blended with a strong belief in high quality and functional design. These speakers not only sound amazing, but are obviously unusual, stylish and above all, fun!

Zemi

A sphere shaped ceramic with its own unique aesthetic, Zemi can be either suspended from the ceiling or placed on any convenient surface in its own holder. Zemi uses NAC Sound’s patented central ceramic reflex technology, based on a variable section pipe which passes through the sphere, to create a high quality and natural sound with exceptional clarity of image.

Omni

Omni is a ceramic bodied speaker which uses NAC Sound’s omni-directional technology with twin speakers and a central hardwood reflector.

Omni is perhaps the most elegant of the NAC Sound range. With its reduced size and a 70W output, it has an excellent sound quality: lifelike, and clean at all frequencies. It is essentially a hi-fi system speaker (preferably with a sub-woofer), and it is also suitable for home theatre, particularly if coupled with a model such as Zemi. Omni is available with a stand as an optional extra.

Kayak

It builds on the technologic research started with NAC sound, designed with Ron Arad, which introduced for the first time the concept of a single body with stereophonic emission.

Kayak is designed to be suspended horizontally between two opposing walls or pillars, or vertically between floor and ceiling. With its output of 60W, it is ideal for use in homes or anywhere with insufficient space for the speakers to be mounted from the ceiling.

There are three elements we focus particularly on in the design of our speakers:

  • Shape
    Simple, pure shapes—spheres and tear drops—are at the heart of the NAC Sound range. All have been developed specifically to produce the best sound quality possible, yet we also want them to look fun. And hung from the ceiling, mechanical vibration is virtually eliminated.
  • Materials
    Most of our speaker cabinets are made from ceramic, which is an ideal material because it is extremely rigid, and so it minimizes resonance. The cabinets are hand made for us in Umbria by traditional craftsmen. They are then finished either in a natural terra cotta, or glazed in a wide range of exciting colors.
  • Technology
    Our speakers use NAC Sound’s own patented omni-directional and multi-directional technologies. These blend the high and low frequency waves together to create a sound which is rich and lifelike, and—unlike other speakers which direct the sound within a relatively narrow space—is highly consistent, wherever in the room the listener is positioned. We also use our patented transmission line reflex to obtain a higher extension at low frequencies and a reduction in the volume of the speaker cabinets, and to ensure a better response to transience and a cleaner sound in the mid frequencies.
