The “Diffuser Cabinet” appears as a free-standing sculpture, assembled of individual, irregular pieces of tulip wood. Its unique form is actually shaped by a mathematical calculation that optimizes the acoustic performance of the room in which it is placed. The natural variation of tones in the wood represent the differenttonalities of sound. Like Jenga, the playful structure is equally made up of empty slots. Moreover, parts can be pulled out to reveal hidden drawers. While the cabinet stores, the diffuser performs the opposite, spreading rather than collecting sound. For that reason, the design—its name and dual function—is an impressive contradiction.
