Qoobi One (Wireless Tube Pre Amp) by Matvey Evstigneev
2016 - 2017, Golden A' Digital and Electronic Devices Design Award Winner
Inspiration
Qoobi design was inspired by unforgotten school stereometry lessons, ice cubes in a glass of whisky, early works of Victor Vasarely, Hayao Miyazaki animation, Star Wars movies, cold and aloof Scandinavian electronic music as the January morning. And of course, fulfilled with overwhelming desire to break down stereotypes and to make the product that totally differs from everything that has been created in this class of devices.
Creativity
The best heritage analog audio technologies combined with ultra-modern wireless solutions and implemented in innovative conceptual design, unprecedented in this segment of electronic audio devices.
Design Challenges
The toughest part of the project was to find the best possible size for the product, to select naturally matching materials and to finally create fully working prototype.
Production Technology
Qoobi design contrastively and seamlessly combined two elements and two worlds: sharp shape of metal polyhedron placed into the glass prism. The body is made of light alloy anodized aluminum which also works as a convection radiator for heated tubes, which allows to ensure stable and continuous operation. Glass prism made by state-of-the-art extrusion technology from the finest high strength quartz glass.
