Thinking Outside The Black BoxCubik’s modern and distinct design has caught the eyes of national news syndications and broadcast outlets. It's unforgettable contours stand out on any desk and are a match made in heaven for its full-digital hi-fi sound. Internationally-renowned and award-winning Young-se Kim crafted the contemporary design of Cubik. In creating this modern and sleek appeal of Cubik, Kim took a minimalist’s perspective. “When first visualizing Cubik, I was determined to think outside the black box you of most audio speaker designs. I wanted to turn that concept on its side and create something new.” With a smirk Kim pauses, then continues, “Ironically, I ended up creating a black box, that was literally turned on its side. But it is this subtle twist on the classic cube shape that gives users a fresh perspective on audio design.” The classic cube-shape that Kim talks about here and its clever angling were pointed out in USA TODAY, which said, “the stylish tilt of the cube-shaped speakers will add visual interest to your decor.”
Young-se KimKim’s story begins at the ripe age of 16 when he decided to be a designer. After studying industrial design in Seoul and Chicago, Kim set up Innnodesign in Palo Alto, California in 1986 and has expanded offices to Seoul, Beijing and Tokyo. He has designed Samsung smart phones, LG fridges and iRiver MP3 players. For Kim, design can make people dream of the future and change their lives. Kim believes most deeply that ‘design is loving others.'
