Yamaha Design “Synapses” ACP-2
GOOD DESIGN AWARD
Design for Asia Award
An acoustic conditioning panel that conditions the reverberation in a space to produce pleasing sound.
The functions of an acoustic conditioning panel (acoustic resonance tube, hard reflective surface, and aperture to produce the dispersion effect) all condensed into a device with a simple outline. Available in three colors that will harmonize with any interior: basic white, natural, and brown.
The location of the aperture in the panel is determined by the unique acoustic structure of the space. As such, it visually accentuates the "calculated randomness" used to improve the acoustics, thus characterizing the underlying design.
With its functional form, the device will match the room or space in which it is used and will underscore the presence of individual instruments or audio sources.
Notably, it produces a pleasant acoustic field for instruments and audio units by effectively conditioning the reverberation of low- and medium-register notes, thereby honing the sensibilities of the artist.
