HousePod

HousePod

Pod speakers are the British specialist Blue Room’s simply stunning neobarock introduction into the loudspeaker world
— Elle decoration - November 1993

Conceived as a visual representation of the sound they created, the original sketches of the HousePod suggested sentience - through evolution a form created for sound waves - mimicking nature with its shell like enclosure.

The undulating curves of the HousePod had significant acoustic advantages over orthodox rectangular speaker boxes. The varying dimensions and curves of the Pod mean the internal standing waves and reflections are dispersed, whilst on the outside the curves around the drivers avoid any baffle-edge discontinuity, which on a box could distort the sound. This allows sound waves to move freely, unfettered by the flat surfaces of square speakers.
