Called Change the Record, the products are made by heated and moulding the plastic disks into a funnel shape.

They amplify the sound from a phone placed inside through their shape alone.

During a live performance to music, designer Paul Cocksedge will be heating and moulding old LPs to give them new life as vinyl speakers that amplify music from smartphones. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own 12” record to see it transformed into a unique object. Speakers will be available to buy at the event.

This event forms part of Bloomberg Summer at the Roundhouse, during which internationally re-nowned artist, architect and designer Ron Arad will create a unique installation for the iconic London building – Curtain Call.

27th August, 4.00 – 7.00pm
The Roundhouse, Chalk Farm Road,
London NW1 8EH

Special thanks to Wildercreative who fabricated the exhibition structure.
