    A retail topographical lounge equipped with integrated digital audio experience
Audio Technica Retail Kiosk, Sydney, 2010
The Soundscape Sofa is a free standing retail concept designed and built for Japanese brand Audio Technica. David Caon Studio partnered with local Sydney design firm Juicy Design to conceive the project. The Soundscape provides a structure upon which customers can sit and relax while sampling the Audio Technica products.

The Soundscape is equipped with six touch screen listening docks. The touch-screens allow the users to either sift through an 'inboard'catalogue of music or plug in their own audio device to listen to through the headphones. Each dock has a different headphone product and the customer can explore the sofa's rugged landscape and sample the various products. The software which powers the touch-screens was custom designed for this application, making the Soundscape Sofa a truly bespoke product.

The design is a result of a necessity to keep the costs low combined with a desire to achieve a truly3D shape. The Soundscape is constructed from 66 layers of 12mm Echo Panel board cut by waterjet. Soundscape was originally created as a 3D sculpture and then horizontally sliced at 12mm intervals to determine the individual layer profiles.
