Wood is typically the choice material used when crafting speakers given the inherent acoustic qualities found in wood, but will bamboo be just as good as hard woods? While I have yet to test out a set of bamboo speakers myself, this concept speaker by designer Guo Yang looks extremely appealing from an aesthetic point of view. Dubbed the Bambory Speakers, it features a body made from bamboo, similar to that of a bamboo basket, with the front grills made from what is reportedly ceramic, which we have to admit is a pretty interesting choice. It gives off a pretty clean and simple look, and to a certain extent looks very homely. We’re not sure what sort of specs the design had in mind, but its design is certainly good enough to warrant a place on the mantelpiece or bookshelf. Any takers?
