Deeptime

deeptime
Research began way back in 2014 when we were called Akemake. Our 3D printed timber concepts were very well received by our peers, so we decided to develop a commercial version.

Profile Description

Fifty prototypes later we re-branded as Deeptime and relocated from the UK to a new design office and manufacturing facility situated in a Science and Technology Park near Prague.

Before launching the world’s first sandstone product 2019, we’ve refined our production process, enhanced the audio capabilities and fine-tuned every design aspect of our product.

DEEPTIME
Deep time is the concept of geologic time.
The kind of timescale where continents dance and mountains rise and fall.

PATTERNS IN NATURE
Inspired by the natural forms, we morph these visible regularities of shape and give new expression to them

QUARTZ
The sand formed over fifty million years ago when rocks broke down from weathering and eroding.

SAND PRINTING
Our 3D printing technique echoes the sedimentary process of stone-forming from layers and layers of sand.

ARTIFACTS
As paleontologists do, the raw 3D printed artifacts are excavated from the pit and precisely cleaned.

INFILTRATION
Then repeatedly dipped into a specially developed hardener which infiltrates the porous shells and makes them airtight.

SLOW CURING
The secret is a slow and natural curing process that cultivates the true rigidity of the infiltrated sand structures. Great things take time.

CRAFTSMANSHIP
From digging out the printed sculptures, cleaning and infiltration to the final assembly, each step is done manually with love and passion.

FINAL TESTING
Finished speakers are analyzed in an anechoic chamber, driven with a sine wave signal swept through the audible range.
