New York City-based premium audio company Master & Dynamic and renowned architect Sir David Adjaye collaborate on the first MA770 wireless speaker.
“This speaker is not about the traditional idea of making boxes, but about a directional form. I became fascinated with the idea of using triangles to break down the mass of the box, and to see if we could dissolve the sense of volume through sculptural detail,” said Adjaye. “We created a new geometry for this speaker. A new geometry of sound.”
Adjaye is known globally as the man behind Washington D.C.’s new Smithsonian museum, The National Museum of African American History and Culture. Now these two industry innovators have created something that is made of a proprietary concrete composite, which is the first of its kind.
“As the industry ebbs towards smaller and more disposable pieces, we continue to defy convention,” said Master & Dynamic’s Founder and CEO Jonathan Levine. “The MA770 reinforces scale and prominence. Its luxurious design and use of premium materials further enhance its beauty.”
Both have chosen the MoMa Design Store to be the speaker’s U.S. launch partner. At approximately 16in x 20in x 10in and 35lbs , it is capable of filling a large room with excellent sound. The multi-room audio feature destined to make other audio companies be on notice for the future.
