The conceptual 'Collector' future drum kit is an ultra-modern take on the classic drum kit that works to enhance it with a digital functionality that would put a focus on enhanced customization.
The drum kit is characterized by its flatpack design that would allow for easy storage when not in use, but expand into a full-size unit when it's time to play. The kit allows players to create beats using the musician's own samples rather than relying on a built-in library of sounds to further put a focus on interactivity and customization. The drum kit is sized perfectly for smaller living spaces where a conventional set simply wouldn't fit.
The conceptual 'Collector' future drum kit is the design work of Liu Tianchen and is the winner of the 2021 Red Dot Design Concept Award.
