Clean Design

NW3 Speakers. Clean, Simple, Functional. What More Do You Need?

Clean, Simple, Elegant design is one way to describe these speakers from NW3. Hand crafted, high quality, and choice materials is another.”

20130608-171910.jpg NW3 is a Germany based interdisciplinary collective where products are designed, manufactured and distributed in close collaboration with local craftsmen and businesses. In addition NW3 tries to explore alternative forms of production and graphic shapes. The NW3 speakers create a natural looking and sounding stereo system that can be used in every area of your house.

The drivers are manufactured by the Danish company Pearless. The simple box housing, is made from local wood, solvent-free stain and protected with natural wax finish. All work is done by a small carpenters workshop in Germany. The front speaker grills are made of powder-coated steel that compliments the simple shape and lines of the speakers.

“Our products are simple and reticent. It is not our intention to make just beautiful forms. We are concentrated on function, comprehensibility, ecology and durability.”
