The 'Tundra' is a new age audio system featuring 3D-printed speakers comprised out of rapid prototyping materials into a stylishly vertical design. The system features an appearance similar to piping, with a modular and tube-like aesthetic that sends sound travelling upwards rather than side-to-side.

The design of the 'Tundra' was put together by creative Matt Trevelyan using CAD programming software. The program allowed the artist to construct the shape and functionality via 3D design and then render it using 3D-printing in concrete. The shape is a cylindric pillar paired with two holes that offer small subwoofers that emit the audio. The holes are paired on either side in different directions to provide surround sound, while the portable and cord-free design ensures easy portability in indoor and outdoor settings.
