Focal and art

Do you find it nice? Not me.

“Focal Arts La Constellation d’Icare is a non-profit fund created to preserve traditional crafts. The first work, La Constellation d’Icare, is presented via Focal Grande Utopia speakers, which evoke five intimate sensory experiences. This project involves Vietnamese-born French painter Hom Nguyen, American composer Mark Yaeger, French perfumer Christophe Laudamiel and French liqueur maker H. Theory.

I think they look better than the bog-standard ones.

I find them frightening. Maybe more suited for metal music?

I think they appear to have been dipped in a bog….

I like the bottom part of the cabinet, makes a change from usual contiguous colour face on that most speakers have. Took Mrs Deeg to point out the top part was a person’s face, I just thought it was some form of moon image given the background. Wonder what the perfumer will bring to the range… plug in aroma therapy?

How did she found the face? I find it disturbing personally.

She did not like the way most of the head was obscured but she liked the style… reminded her of the sun’s corona.

I don’t want my speakers looking at me. Pass.


When I first saw them, I didn’t see the face.

Only following your comments, did I go back and then see the face.

However, not for me.

NO , I totally concur . I love the weird and wonderful record decks you show us… but these speakers are just weird.

But to each his own

best wishes

Yes, me too. I didn’t see the face until I read there was a face. Now I can’t stop seeing the faces! Not for me. Perhaps an abstract design?
