‘Objects of Sound’ by NOCC

Posted by Nora Schmidt on 06.08.2009 - Tagged as: , , ,


The Paris-based studio NOCC presented their ‘Objects of Sound’ – a collection of objects consisting of a candle holder, a lampshade, and a vase, made of SLS polyamide. Each item takes its form from the graphic produced by a person’s voice pronouncing the name of the object – NOCC’s way to create customised accessories. Each object is as individual as a fingerprint.

The object's shapes depend on the customers's voice

The profile of the sound is shaped into a 3D form and becomes an object. By giving volume to the sound wave, the form becomes a piece that is used according to the word pronounced. A candle holder profile becomes a candle holder, a vase profile becomes a vase and a light profile becomes a light.

Provided are examples of objects created from NOCC’s voices, but the underlying concept of Object of Sound is that each unique voice creates a unique and personal shape.

Object of Sound pieces are produced using rapid manufacturing technology. Thanks to this technology, every object can be produced individually. NOCC’s Object of Sound will be available at a forthcoming on-line store, Self-Studio.com
