Amphora Acoustics

Amphora is a new way of dynamically modifying the acoustic qualities of a space.

Based on existing acoustic resonance theories, Amphora is a new type of reactive Helmholtz resonator, which encompasses complex passages and a dynamically adjustable mechanism that converts the element from a passive noise cancellation device to a sound amplifier and vice versa.

As an architectural element with engineered acoustic properties, Amphora can provide a completely new set of experiences, such as new forms of privacy or even new ways of broadcasting.
