Anatomical board of a speaker / Coralie Gourguechon

Coralie Gourguechon paper speaker 1

Graphic design and basic electronics combined to turn a simple sheet of paper into a functioning speaker for educational use, by Toulouse-based product designer Coralie Gourguechon.

The speaker cone is detached from the sheet, and spreads out to form a mechanical amplification of the sound system, and the position of the cone is also an indicator of operation. When flat, the speaker is turned off, as the folding close the circuit, creating a switch system mecanically.
