Gucci Garden Museum The Gucci Garden in Florence houses the official museum that tells the story of the Italian fashion and leather goods manufacturer, from its early start to the global biggest-selling Italian brand that it is today, through a permanent exhibition of iconic pieces, such as bags, clothes, and accessories. In addition to a series of contemporary art installations, the Gucci Garden also contains a library, a cafeteria, a small boutique and a restaurant by a three-Michelin-star chef. With extreme attention given to creating delicate displays throughout the three-story space, the architect studio responsible for the museum design required an inconspicuous audio system that didn’t interrupt the layout but provided enough SPL to transport visitors through Gucci’s archives and vintage objects. They were convinced K-array was the appropriate solution from the incredibly compact size of the Lyzard.

OOO Concept Store at The Student Hotel University-living alternative The Student Hotel recently opened another state-of-the-art facility, this time in the center of Florence in a 20,000-sqm historic palace, offering accommodations for students and travelers alike with modern amenities such as a rooftop pool, meeting spaces, and a gym. Additionally, the multi-purpose ground floor is comprised of a vinyl record store, a concept store, a bicycle store and a restaurant. With these many objectives in one large space, the hotel management needed a versatile audio system to adapt to the various zones on the ground floor. Another requirement was the design element given the refined industrial chic dÊcor; any additional elements needed to integrate harmoniously. Integrators decided the most natural fit was K-array’s Lyzard.

City Walk Dubai City Walk Dubai is an urban living concept with a unique mix of innovative retail and upscale gourmet outlets. Representatives for the outdoor retail complex were in need for highperformance speakers that combined sleek, compact design with professional sound for a particular display. Simulating an enchanted forest, the entrance to the children’s level at the mall contains a display lined with fabricated hollow tree structures where the client wanted to replicate the sounds of birds tweeting and the autumn breeze blowing without affecting the creative setup. Redwood Technologies, a home technology and AV system services company based in Dubai, created a system using 18 white TornadoKT2 point sources hidden within the display.

Rumble

Stainless steel line array subwoofers

Components from the K-array subwoofer line, Rumble, have been conceived to create a smaller, yet extremely powerful bass system engineered for maximum linear excursion and minimum residual noise. The Rumble line is a companion to the K-array Lyzard, Vyper, Tornado and Anakonda speakers. The combination provides full range frequency response with prodigious output and a virtually invisible profile. The subwoofers, KU26, KU44, KU210 and KU212, all boast extended low frequency response and are electronically protected. The subs are made entirely of steel, making them extremely resistant, even when deployed outside in tough weather conditions. This is ideal for water-front environments where ordinary bass speakers would corrode. They are impenetrable by foreign objects like dust, sand or water, which over time can damage an ordinary audio element. Rumble is available in black or white with the option for customization with RAL colors and brushed, polished and 24K gold plated finishes to adapt to the aesthetics for almost all applications and includes integrated flying points for various setups. A variety of dedicated hardware accessories provide designers with numerous mounting options for permanent and portable installations best suited for theaters and other venues where invisible line arrays are ideal. Other applications vary from hotels and churches to pubs and restaurants as well as stores and conferences.
