Yamaha Design “Synapses” YSP-4100
A digital sound projector with realistic surround sound,
designed to create a fresh synergy with flat-screen televisions.
Made to complement flat-screen TVs, transformed into a shape that takes slimness to a whole new level. We focused at the elements needed to create a restrainedﾓ design that would not be too assertive a presence in a living space, and reconstructed them into a simple form.
Even with its all-black finish, we were able to emphasize the various design elements of the YSP-4100 by varying between matt, gloss, and cross hatched metal textures, giving it a refined, solid presence.
The YSP-4100 features an all-black finish to bring synergy to its relationship with the TV. With a shape comprised of a minimum of elements, the tension of the broad surfaces and taut edges gives it a futuristic silhouette.
From the front, the YSP-4100 has a simple rectangular form, featuring only the speakers and panel, and giving a restrained, elegant presence well-suited to a stylish living space.
