Switch (3-in-1 Portable Bluetooth® Speaker) by Fabien Nauroy
2012 - 2013, Golden A' Digital and Electronic Devices Design Award Winner
Inspiration
After the successful launch of the award-winning Honeycomb our first wireless speaker designed by Michael Young in 2010, we started to work on different concepts around the audio world. Switch is our latest development.
Creativity
Native Union’s SWITCH is a powerful, portable Bluetooth® speaker, conference call unit and mobile powerbank. Its simple design allows it to be used in a vertical or horizontal position, with an intuitive volume wheel design that channels the retro-but-modern feel Native Union is known for. SWITCH is perfect for anyone who uses a mobile device for conference calls and enjoying music and movies. SWITCH provides 14 hours of audio playback time with crystal clear sound and has a powerful 1800mAh battery that allows it to function as a power bank for USB-enabled mobile devices.
Design Challenges
Our approach on this project was to hide all the technology in a very minimal and geometric shape. A very important part of our design ethos at Native Union is to make the product more accessible and attractive breaking the barrier between technology and style.
Production Technology
SWITCH is manufactured in our modern ISO workshop using the latest SMT, Plastic injection and finishing techniques to ensure durability and reliability. Each SWITCH is assembled by hand and 100% tested and inspected to meet our high standards, and the audio quality is measured in an anechoic chamber with a spectrum analyzer, to ensure each unit produces the identical sound SWITCH is recognized for. Finally Switch is placed in high quality; durable packaging to make sure it reaches our customer in perfect condition
