If you simply love to experiment with the pitch and bass of music, Industrial designer Mike Kim has come up with an innovative audio system dubbed the “Hydroponic Sound” that brings the distinctiveness of plant foliage inside the speaker to give an altogether new auditory spirit to your speaker. Capable of changing the frequencies within the speaker, the plants works as an active acoustic dampener to influence the quality of music.
Without doubt, music has a profound effect on our body and mind. Music affects our moods dramatically and can have positive effects on mental health and well-being of both the musician and the listener. The same theory applies to plants and many scientific experiments have been done in the past to study the effect of different types of music on the plants. Inspired by the same notion, designer Yi-Chen Sung has conceptualized a planter that features a built-in speaker in the shape of a chronograph. The project aims to explore the impact of music on the growth of plants inside the pot. The speaker has been designed to look like a flower coming out from the planter.
