For one of the first exhibitions to be held at Posh Village, JMC Lutherie from the Vallée de Joux in Switzerland showcases the Soundboard, a loudspeaker made of tonewood.
When master-luthier Jeanmichel Capt. Lutherie set out to craft the Soundboard speaker, he turned to 80-year-old craftsman Lorenzo Pellegrini to pick out one particular spruce tree from a forest. He chose one which was 40 metres tall and 350 years old for its resonance qualities as it would form the membrane for the loudspeaker. Visitors will be able to take a moment to allow the noise of the city to stand still and experience a playlist of music chosen exclusively for Dubai Design Week through the Soundboard.
The event will be a walk-in concert with seats by La Seggiola and visitors can experience the music played through the soundboard.
