The Blue Room MiniPod range redefined traditional speaker aesthetics while creating objects and experiences that inspired an emotional connection. It was hi-fidelity intended for a generation of people who are as passionate about style as they are about music.
The undulating curves of the MiniPod had significant acoustic advantages over conventional rectangular speaker boxes. The varying dimensions and curves of the Pod mean the internal standing waves and reflections dispersed, while on the outside the curves around the drivers avoid any baffle-edge discontinuity, which on a box could distort the sound. It allows sound waves to move freely, unfettered by the flat surfaces of square speakers.
We created memorable experiences throughout the user journey; from first seeing one - to owning one.
Packaging is an important part of the user experience, so to extend this, it had to be reusable. It wasn’t just about delivering an amusing sustainability solution; it had to be something you’d want to use.
The wall bracket followed the shape of the MiniPod, by rounding off the form at the bottom, like the TechnoPod, while the Sputnik spikes offered options for floor-standing.
