Ori Hanging Speaker

When you want something to be louder you get closer to it, and when you want it to be quieter you push it away. What if a speaker was designed so that intuitive motion translated directly to control of the sound?

Gesture controlled hanging speaker

Ori is a bluetooth hanging speaker that hangs above desks and tables, waiting to be pulled closer. Pull it down to turn up the volume, and push it back up again to turn it down.

Inspired by the nests that Oriole birds build high up in the trees of woodland regions.
