Aureal grows out of the need, in the musician’s world, to use a mirror while they are studying. Musicians, just like happens with elite athletes, require a high level of muscular and postural control. This is due to the fact that they spend many hours studying and must have a very good proprioception to avoid injuries.
Characterized by the continuity, homogeneity, simplicity and honesty of its shape, it generates the perception of an integrated whole. The ethereal color of its structure makes it a piece capable of concealing itself with the atmosphere of every room, continuing to be part of it. This, incontrast with the combination of materials, mix of rigid and flexible surfaces; and the colouring of some of its details, provides attraction and personality.
Its main structure is thought to be developed by folding 5mm steel sheet (after cuting it with a CNC machine). You can move it easily thanks to the two wheels made out of pine plywood. Besides, there is a steel surface which you can hang, or not, at diferent heights with the aim of using it as a music stand with magnets’ help.
Before developing the full scale prototype, a 1:5 scale mockup was created to prove the estability and other aspects of the design.
Then the development part came.
This project has been selected to be part of Paral-lel 5.0 (Polythecnic University of Valencia) which has been exposed in Milan’s Design Week 2019 (Ventura Future) and will be exposed in Valencia’s Hábitat Fair 2019.
