Power and grace. Dynamic and melody. Fullness and void. Kindness and impetuosity. Harmony and chaos. Seemingly opposite strong contrasts that co-exist in the music. Lilium has been designed to shape those great contrasts expressed by music. It is the will of two opposite elements: two separate identities that, although working independently one from each other, cooperate inside the same shape.
The creation of a shape that holds two distinct elements has been a big challenge from a technical point of view and from a design one as well. Everything was about the need find a new way to put together the large volume required to reproduce the very low frequencies, with the structure dedicated to the reproduction of the main portion of the audible spectrum.
The marked separation between these two elements is made visually clear by the use of different materials: finely wrought walnut wood for the front part and a softer material – leather – for the rear enclosure. We have decided to adopt the organic style of the natural shapes, which is the family the Lilium belongs to. Undoubtedly, this result marks a further step forward in the stylistic and acoustic research by Sonus faber.
