Hemmo Honkonen: Audible Furniture

Image   •   Jan 23, 2018 12:36 GMT

Audible Furniture is a collection of furniture that produces sounds when used. The experience offered by the furniture has played a central role in the project. It is about interaction, surprise and humour. The pieces of furniture are like characters because of their individual sounds, which can stir up emotions such as sympathy or joy. In my opinion, design needn't always be so serious, and I like when it involves a bit of humour. I began the project with the idea of combining my skills in instrument making, furniture and design. The idea of experimenting with mechanically induced sounds came from a little whistling bird character that I created during a previous course at Malmstens. The pieces are made of oak, pine, card and leather, and went from idea to finished product in approximately six weeks.
