Ron Arad “No Discipline”
CENTRE Pompidou, Paris
20 November 2008 - 16 March 2009
For the first time in France, the Centre Pompidou is devoting a monograph to the British industrial designer and architect Ron Arad.
The retrospective of his work presents major and emblematic works, prototypes accompanied by audiovisual documents, limited series and mass-produced objects, along with numerous architectural projects.
Integral to this exhibition are five NACSound Freewheeler speakers. These supply the mood music in the different zones that Ron Arad has created.
Each speaker works separately, connected to its music source using the latest wireless technology and running for an impressive 12 hours on a single recharge. Typical of Ron Arad’s “No Discipline” design, the Freewheeler is mobile and can be wheeled around to any suitable location, inside or out. The audio quality is second to none as it has been designed and manufactured by NACSound’s Francesco Pellisari.
