for Marsotto edizioni

A cube-shaped candle-stand and smartphone speaker designed for Marsotto edizioni an Italian marble brand specialising in marble furniture.The candle-stand evenly spreads light, creating a graduation on the surface of the marble by hollowing-out a cube with the candle flame positioned right in the center of the sphere.The smartphone speaker evenly spreads the amplified sound with the cube being hollowed-out by two conical shapes and a slot on top to fit the smartphone.The two accessories can be used side by side because they are exactly the same in form and sizes, and are suitable for outdoor use due to them being made out of marble.This design provides a sense of unity by adding a slight expression to the “light” and “sound”.sphere_cone_sketch sphere&cone01_akihiro_yoshida sphere&cone02_akihiro_yoshida sphere&cone03_akihiro_yoshida sphere&cone04_akihiro_yoshida sphere&cone05_akihiro_yoshida sphere&cone06_akihiro_yoshida sphere&cone07_akihiro_yoshida sphere&cone08_akihiro_yoshida sphere&cone09_akihiro_yoshida sphere&cone10_akihiro_yoshida sphere&cone11_akihiro_yoshida sphere&cone12_akihiro_yoshida sphere&cone13_akihiro_yoshida sphere&cone14_akihiro_yoshida sphere&cone15_akihiro_yoshida sphere&cone16_akihiro_yoshida sphere&cone17_akihiro_yoshida sphere&cone18_akihiro_yoshida
