NAGOYA, Japan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nagoya Lumber Co., Ltd. (NSE:7903)(head office: Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture; President: Kohtaro Niwa) has developed an omnidirectional loudspeaker, the LIGNOaudio SP-50SS, for which it launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter*1 on March 1.
Small enough to be carried about in the palm of your hand, the SP-50SS can be placed almost anywhere, making it easy to use in the home as well as in shops, cafes and hotels. While first and foremost designed to enhance the enjoyment of music, the SP-50SS can also be appreciated for its aesthetic design, having won a Japan Wood Design Award in 2018.*2
The SP-50SS’s cone-shaped reflector sits within a slim pentagonal speaker enclosure. As an omnidirectional speaker unit it transmits sound out and upwards in a full 360° circle, providing listening enjoyment in every direction.
LIGNOaudio is Nagoya Lumber’s brand of audio products that use LIGNOTEX*3, a form of compressed wood developed by us. For the wood in the SP-50SS we used timber from the highest grade of conifer and hinoki cypress trees that represent the best to be sourced in Japan. LIGNOaudio products excel at harnessing the qualities of Japanese timber, and aim to make wood a feature of luxurious spaces for people to spend their lives in.
