Concept Design, 3D Print, Prototype, Self-Commissioned
Like many classical instruments, the violin has retained an unaltered form over time, so the challenge was to create a 21st-century version by innovating on a form unchanged for centuries and to move away from the dominant baroque aesthetic.
The inspiration came from fields outside of music, drawing from the contours of the female body but also contemporary yacht design and fashion. The design not only preserves the authentic sound of a traditional violin but it is incredibly light – weighing less than a pound – thanks to a carbon fiber and wood body.
