JINGOO by DAQI CONCEPT
In Chinese, the name DAQI means “taking time to become great and grown up”, which emphasizes that the best things in life require layers of experience and special decorations.
For us, design is a process of ongoing experimentation and revision, trying and testing, mixing old ideas into new concepts. We combine traditional craft and modern technology to create beautiful things for a modern lifestyle.
"By bringing together an ambient light and bluetooth speaker, JinGoo is the perfect blend of Eastern aesthetics and superb sound quality, helping you escape the fast pace of life - creating a pleasant atmosphere for any space"
How Jingoo is born
As a design team based in Taiwan, we want to incorporate uniquely local materials and culture into our work even when it is for the design of electronic products.
The Taiwanese town of Yingge is famous for being home to ceramic crafts and holds an important place in the global ceramic industry. Furthermore, as Taiwan is an island situated in a subtropical region, it was known in the past century for its exports of wood materials.
The Bird: Porcelain Craft
The body of the bird is formed from molds for production precision and fired in traditional kilns by the masters in Yingge. The patterns for certain JG01 species are created from a technique called "ceramic decal", which requires an exhaustive experimental process to ensure that the decorations conform to the curved surface of the bird's body.
Jingoo is a speaker that can be easily paired with your devices. Its high quality sound performance is created by the tweeter and woofer drivers in Jingoo’s design.
Jingoo features a mono 2-way speaker, the low frequency woofer speaker is positioned in the base structure and its sound waves are reflected by the ceramic tail of the bird. A wide stereo effect is created with the sound waves from the tweeter located in the bird's body.
Advanced audio performance
To optimize the sound quality in all frequency ranges, JG01 has not only incorporated a tweeter to enhance high-pitch sound performance, but has also been designed with 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.
