Jack Speaker by Ben Wahrlich for ANAESTHETIC

Final Frame

When we recently interviewed designer Joey Roth, we mentioned we thought his ceramic and wood speakers were at the forefront of a new category of beautiful handmade sculptural boutique audio pieces. Ben Wahrlich's Jack speaker seems like a handsome relative...

"The Jack speaker housing is made of concrete which has been hand mixed and hand cast, ensuring the unique varied characteristics of the material, while the crossbar is made from turned hardwood. An exclusive concrete formula has been produced over several months of development, which boasts a compressive strength that is more than 10x that of standard concrete. This mix is specifically designed to achieve high strength with reduced weight, meaning safer shipping for international customers."
