Carved book cases

Manolo Valdes’ Bookcases may not be accurately calculated in terms of wavelengths, but could still be excellent diffusors.

Perhaps best known for his large monumental sculptures drawing from art history, the Spanish artist Manolo Valdés has carved Bookcases that might interest hi-fi hobbyists because of their absorption and diffusion characteristics.

More pertinently, the Bookcases reflect Manolo Valdés’ mixed media approach and exploration of contemporary culture and everyday life – “many projects from one single image”. The Bookcases can also be seen as a result of Valdes having been previously influenced by Pop Art.
