Sonora
Dissolving design into behaviour.

Music streaming platforms allow us instant access to vast catalogues of tracks, but users still struggle to discover inspiring content. Sonora is a speaker designed to discover music. The tangible interface is inspired by how we manipulate non-technological objects, so it is controlled solely with gestures –no buttons or screen.
