David Adjaye's MA770 Speaker is Molded from Concrete

Concrete is a useful material for designing acoustically vibrant spaces, so architect David Adjaye has followed the same line of logic with his MA770 speaker. Crafted for New York-based sound company Master & Dynamic, Adjaye's MA770 speaker is made using a hybrid concrete material that gives it both excellent sound and a uniquely sculptural form.

Most speakers come as boxes. Not only is that standard design boring, but it does little to affect the quality of the sounds emitted. The MA770's swooping concrete exterior looks attractive, but it also serves as a cone to direct the sound wholly along the vector at which the speaker is pointed. This in turn gives the speaker more convenient functionality compared to many of its competitors.

The MA770 speaker can be connected via wires or wirelessly through Google Chromecast.
