With eight days left to go in its crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, Hult Design’s Pavilion–an aesthetically pleasing wireless speaker incorporating a “d-spiral acoustic” copper pipe that boosts bass frequencies through acoustic resonance–has managed to raise over $53,800 of its $70,000 goal.
According to the speaker’s crowdfunding campaign page on Kickstarter, the project will only be funded if it reaches its goal of $70,000 raised by January 15, 2016 at 1:59 PM (EST).
“Pavilion is polished symbiosis of architectural form and exceptional sound performance. Pavilion disconnects itself from old cliches box design and plastic housing to make an approach with pure and powerful speaker,” Hult Design co-founder Brian Han told Immortal News in an e-mail.

The company shared a promotional video of the rechargeable Pavilion speaker, which offers Bluetooth streaming and three-dimensional sound, on YouTube late last year with a description in which the company refers to the elegantly designed device as a state of the art sound system achieved through “the beautiful combination of unique material and sound.”
Pavilion’s design–a melding of sound and art–is derived from the team’s analysis of some of the greatest modern architectures, from Ando Tadao to Frank Lloyd Wright. As if to illustrate the design’s origins, the base of the speaker is constructed from high-density concrete, as one might find in one of Wright’s home designs.
The 20 watt speaker itself is manufactured by Peerless in Denmark.
The device is compatible with a variety of Bluetooth devices, including iPhones and Androids.
