Spotted! Paper Ceramic Speakers



Sound is omnipresent, yet we seem not to notice it …

Yong Jieyu‘s Paper Ceramic Loudspeakers are part of a noise and sound research project, looking into different aspects of sounds in our environment and our relationship with them.

“When the phonograph was invented, scientists talked about how broadcasting will liberate mankind from lonely isolation. There is perhaps an innate need for us to broadcast our views, propagate our beliefs and share our passion. I created the paper ceramic loudspeakers to draw memory to the way a child uses paper cones as loudspeakers. Since then we have advanced many materials in an attempt to perfect sound amplification. The loudspeakers are made with discarded musical scores and ceramic. Ceramic, having one of the lowest sound absorbent coefficients is one of the best materials for sound amplification; while discarded musical scores are given a second chance to fulfill their destiny – the propagation of music.”


Yong Jieyu is currently pursuing a Masters degree with the Design Academy Eindhoven. ” I am interested in the connection life and design draws.”
