MinuSkull is the little sister of the monumental Hi-Fi sculptures that we’ve been creating over the last few years. We consider each one a piece of art, like a drawing or a sculpture.
Re-exploring the esoteric aspects of Hi-Fi is almost like searching for a forgotten secret, experiencing rare sensations. It’s luxurious, it’s like driving a chic sports car without any speed limit.
We mostly work on visual esthetics, but we’ve always been fascinated by sound and music. The world of Hi-Fi is an amazing playground, where we can confront our visual identity with the emotional atmosphere brought by Hi-Fi.
We really like the sound broadcast by MinuSkull. It’s warm, wide and precise, and reflects the atmosphere of our studio, where sound and image naturally merge.
We expect from a loud-speaker something more than just a beautiful industrial high quality object with a very uniformed sound. We wanted to find the ideal sound for us, which is why each MinuSkull component is tailor made.
With the assistance of a team of specialists and engineers, this project has taken us over year of research. The difficulties linked to technology haven’t reduced our possibilities of creation. On the contrary, the shape and proportions of the skull are the results of those constraints.
It’s a sophisticated and high performance object, and most of all, to our own standards, it has a soul.
ABOUT THE CREATORS
Since 1990 Olivier Kuntzel and Florence Olivier, both creators and illustrators, have been signing under the name Kuntzel+Deygas a narrative graphic design, based on characters that they have created and brought to life in many different ways in the world of luxury and fashion, their two favorite playgrounds.
MINUSKULL : A SOUND THAT KILLS
MinuSkull is a design object made for a high-quality sound experience at home or in the office. Its extraordinary Hi-Fi system creates a perfect sound without any distortion, even when the volume is very low. We have tested MinuSkull in different places, big places, small places. It always diffuses the perfect sound.
MinuSkull can be connected to any source of sound (Ipod, mp3, computer, …). The better the source the more you can enjoy MinuSkull’s high-quality sound.
Technical components inside the skull. Two broadband Fostex Fe-83 speakers with a membrane made out banana leaf pulp (the eyes). A mini subwoofer for a large and natural restitution. We have chosen a tailor-made speaker (made in France), which lies underneath the skull. A tailor-made Mosfet amplifier that allows a transparent and dynamic quality of listening without using an additional amplifier.
MinuSkull is expandable : this speaker can be used alone or as a duet in order to improve the stereo effect. Using 5 MinuSkulls creates the basis of a Home Cinema Sound System (a subwoofer should be added in this case).
Handcrafted in France. For domestic use only.
Delivery : 4 to 6 weeks (walnut wood). 6 to 8 weeks (black or white piano lacquer)
