Outline

The motif of Lyric Speaker Canvas is two record jackets mounted on the wall. The front panel is a screen that shows the lyrics, and the other behind a meshed panel is a speaker. By tilting those two panels, we succeeded to create a space to maintain high sound quality and also to put the machine.

Evaluation

At first sight, it appears like two vinyl records are on display against the wall. Presenting such an ordinary scenery in everyday life, it has a non-product like existence with great balance of modernity. As the music plays, the lyrics show up on the display in a beautifully dynamic kinetic typography linked to the song. Further refining the configuration of the first generation, it has adopted a style that blends into the living space by intentionally minimizing the design, which we found admirable.
