Michal Strach is a student of an atelier K. O. V. (Concept-object-importance) at High School of Industrial Design in Prague. In his bachelor thesis he presented a series of interior speakers. They are based on šasi made of massive wood where all electronics (two middle bass speakers, height speaker, source and amplifier) are located. A decorative part is made of paper cover stylised in the shape of a cross. To fix it there are conic stems, which go through the paper and get fixed in the speaker chassis. The same fixation works for other shape variations. The cover consists of 260 gram white tracing paper.

The spot where a vertical part meets with a horizontal part is another way to connect and fix an mp3 player. Here is an opening for player holder and 3,5 mm jack audio input. Another audio input for connecting a computer or another device of larger parameters, is located at the bottom line of chassis.

Another option is an oval mono speaker a textile cover of which pulses in the rhythm of music and evokes raindrops falling down on the water surface.

And last but not least, an option designed by Michal Strach, is a sail on a body tube of a speaker so that the whole concept can sail away beyond the horizon.

Structures by Catherine Wales were inspirational when it comes to the aspect of percieving space around the body. They are fragile, but three dimensional. Despite not being very spectacular in terms of texture of colour they are eye-catching because of the shapes they create. They embrace the space around the body and therefore somehowe extend the personal space of the person who wears it.

Michal Strach added movement to it and put life into the jewelery, but also an interesting interaction between the object and the wearer, as it makes the piece different with every gesture.
