During the Salone del Mobile (Famous Italian Furniture show) taking place in Milan, the Sony Design Center will showcase the Sony Design x Master Craft Lombardia project.
Sony collaborated with Lombard artists and artisans to create unique design pieces that incorporate Sony technology.
The creations include wooden, marble or leather shelves with built-in speakers; seats with leather or fabric upholstery whose headrests emit soft and soothing notes; picture frames and other solid marble objects that hide tiny speakers and in some cases small light and scent sources; specially processed glass panels containing monitors; or galvanized, laser-engraved coffee tables.
The Sony design prototypes consist of the following products:
1. “ZA” Surround Sound Chair
2. “TSUKI” Table with Built - in Projector
3. “YUI” Wall Fixture Audio System
4. “MATOI” Personal Computer with Customized Cover
5. “Hibiki” Hanging Speaker and “KANADE” All-in-one Home Audio System
6. “CHO” Frame Type Speaker
7. “RIN” Standing Speaker
8. “KAKERU” Shelf with Built - in Speaker
9. “HANA” Floor Lamp with Built - in Speaker
10. “SEN” Folding Screen Television System
