13. KT: The Listening Room

Location: Tokyo

Architect: MAT Studio / Elastik

A 20-foot shipping container was transformed into the KT: The Listening Room, filled with corrugated fiberboard and compressed polyester foam panels, which cut out exterior noise and vibrations. The listening room contains 15 speakers to fill the space with music. KT: The Listening Room was an installation specifically designed for the Tokyo Designers Week 2008.
