The beauty of the form: The G1 Intelligent Speakers have a unique shape, and the whole is a triangular football shape. The fuselage is full of arcs, similar to the triangle on the top, the size is ergonomic, and the desktop is not obtrusive. The three sides of the speaker are made of linen and high-grade gray cloth mesh, and there is a certain gap between the cloth mesh and the main body of the speaker, creating a sense of suspension. The main body of the speaker is bright black, and the buttons are exquisite matte effect, spraying with oil. The contrast of the two materials produces a unique visual effect.


Different from the traditional iron mesh speaker design, the side mesh of the G1 Intelligent Speakers are apped in a beautiful arc to make the mesh more tension, and the triangle contraction at the upper and lower ends echoes, creating a visual impact aesthetic.


The full curved surface of the speaker body highlights the three-dimensional side shape, the suspended mesh design, and the simple and full display of the atmosphere of the speaker.





The CMF design of the exterior is inspired by rugby and the Dubai Sailing Hotel. It is divided into two types of high-grade linen gray cloth mesh and colorful gradient cloth mesh. It is designed with a streamlined curved surface. The main body is bright and seamless injection molding. Adopt water transfer printing and spraying technology. The perfect combination of gradient color cloth mesh and black presents the beauty of balance of rigidity and softness.




The production of various versions of the G1 Intelligent Speakers is inseparable from the silent efforts of the CMF team of industrial design. It has been carefully sculpted in the design of the G1 Intelligent Speakers, and the inspiration collision, the plan modification, the modification of the arc surface, and the refinement of details. These are working hard to improve the quality of the speaker's value.


In order to show the most perfect effect, in the continuous innovative design of the cloth mesh matching scheme, new materials and new processes are constantly being explored.
