Press Release (ePRNews.com) - TAIPEI, Taiwan - Apr 12, 2016 - DAQI CONCEPT has launched its Indiegogo campaign for JinGoo, a designer craft piece that takes the form of a bird cage and brings together the features of an ambient light and a bluetooth speaker. With this beautiful lamp that plays music, owners are invited to create a pleasant atmosphere for any space.
According to the design team from Taiwan, the name JinGoo is taken from ancient Chinese literature, in which it is used to describe the sweet sound of birds calling. Bird keeping is a ritual in traditional Chinese culture and bird cages are commonly seen as part of home decor. The owners, whom enjoy a carefree and abundant lifestyle, would take their birds in cages for strolls in early mornings and admire the bird’s songs while writing and reciting poetry.
“In creating JinGoo, We hope to bring back this leisurely lifestyle to urban homes and its residents that live daily in haste and under pressures. We wish for JinGoo to be your very own companion in life, to make spaces magical, and to inspire endless imagination” says Sean Chen, CEO of DAQI CONCEPT and JinGoo concept creator, “We believe that great design is not only about aesthetic beauty, but also about bringing soul to your life”.
The perfect blend of eastern aesthetics and superb sound quality.
Craftsmanship – The body of the bird is formed from molds for production precision and fired in the traditional kilns by the masters in Yingge, the traditional ceramic town in Taiwan. The patterned JinGoo species are made from a technique of ceramic decal, requiring an exhaustive experimental process to conform to the curved surface of the bird’s body and ensure the perfection of the decorations.
The Taiwan Acacia wood is used for the base of the bird cage. Through the expertise of an experienced sensei with kiln drying techniques from Japan, the shrinkage of fibres has been controlled to preserve the natural patterns and textures of the Acacia wood.
The Art of Sound – JinGoo features a mono 2-way speaker, where the low frequency woofer speaker is positioned in the base structure and its sound waves are reflected by the ceramic tail of the bird; Together with the sound waves from the tweeter, in the bird’s body, a wide stereo effect is created for advanced audio performance.
To optimize the sound quality in all frequency ranges, JinGoo features a crossover frequency at 1800Hz to filter all the frequencies below that to the woofer and anything above to the tweeter. In doing so, the interference between the overlap of the tweeter and woofer are avoided, and allows each to perform at its best.
JinGoo will be available at a limited early bird price of up to 30% off future retail prices: $139 for the BASIC version with cable and starting at $179 for the WIRELESS version. Owners can choose from 5 different JinGoo species varying in colors and patterns as perks to bring home.
