Mikal Hameed wants you to think about music. His fine art encapsulates his love of music, and now along with Rebecca Paul, he has launched a product line called ReBaroque that furthers this message.
ReBaroque may be a product line, but it is in the guise of Hameed’s signature fine art sound pieces. His luxe sound-infused Eames chairs (which often incorporate turn tables or disc changers) have been shown in the gallery setting, but may be a little large for the small New York apartment (where the commitment to space is sometimes more daunting than on the wallet). But Rebaroque’s sound frames find themselves at home on the walls amongst one’s art collection or personal photos alike.
Combining their knowledge and passion for fine art, music, technology and sustainable design, Paul and Hameed call the line “up-cycled sound frames”. Made entirely from repurposed materials (other than the speakers), ReBaroque uses vintage picture frames, found wood and fabric remnants, along with high-quality speakers and a dock for your iPod, Blackberry, iPhone or Bluetooth.
ReBaroque’s goal, other than providing a functional artwork, is to challenge the user to interact with the space in which they live, and redefine how we think about music and our homes. Good luck Mikal and Rebecca!
