LIGNEA SPEAKERS: Curves a-plenty via the late FRANCO SERBLIN

11th September 2016

The company has taken three years to develop and now the Lignea speakers are ready to roll

They were one of the last projects to be produced by Sonus Faber founder and ex-director, Franco Serblin, who recently – and suddenly – died.


His son-in-law, who has taken the reins of the company, Massimiliano Favella, commented of Serblin, “During all the steps, I always followed his teaching and his ‘modus operandi’ for every single detail. Today I wish to affirm that the value we give to things is the meaning we put in them. The value I attribute to the Lignea project is the profound esteem I always had for Franco.”


The 2-way speakers themselves have a unique presentation. Every cabinet is made from a single piece of solid wood while an aluminium panel housing the components blends with the diffuser and the wood chamber has a refraction construction.


Arriving with a sensitivity of 83dB, the speakers span 50 × 29.5 × 105cm and sport a weight of 16kg/pair.


The drive units include a 110mm mid-bass cone, customised by the company plus a 27mm impregnated textile tweeter.


Price will be around the €4,500 per pair mark.
