SCHEEK Design Philosophy
We from scheek-loudspeakers believe that when you place an object in a room, –which then takes a certain amount of space- it should contribute positively to the room they are in. A neutral contribution does not exist; everything that takes room adds or subtracts to the comfort and experience (if only for the reason that adding objects to a certain space makes the place physically smaller). When designing an object for a room, the designer should pay great attention to the way the object influences the room. This way of reasoning does also apply to loudspeakers, since they are objects which will be placed in a room. It is the job of the designer to create a loudspeaker which adds to the comfort and positive experience of a room. This is a great challenge since most end-users have their own sense of taste, and the rooms the speaker should fit in will be different. With the design of our loudspeakers we strive to make objects which are beautiful, and enrich the space they are placed in. This does not mean that their physical presence should be overly clear; when placed in a corner or under a certain angle the loudspeakers could have a subtle, more modest (but still valuable) presence.
'Concious of Art'
As Kant said in Kritik der Urteilskraft: ‘In a product of beautiful art we must become conscious that it is Art and not Nature; but yet the purposiveness in its form must seem to be as free from all constraint of arbitrary rules as if it were a product of mere nature. (…) Nature is beautiful because it looks like Art; and Art can only be called beautiful if we are conscious of it as Art while yet it looks like Nature.’ What should be taken from this, is that a design should be natural, when it wants to be beautiful. With natural we mean an unforced way of designing, where the shape arises in a natural way. The aesthetic design of scheek-loudspeakers is the product of a slightly nuanced version of this idea. While we do not force a certain beauty into the product, we do keep current trends in fashion and interior design in mind. The result is the loudspeakers we offer today, which fit in many different rooms and add to the aesthetic experience of the place they are in.
