I created Palo Audio with the vision of reimagining the way we communicate with nature and its resources by repurposing wood into a line of speakers. Each piece is unique, with characteristics that draw the listener closer, enjoying music while navigating through each detail left by its history.
Living in California, it is common to see wildfires destroying thousands of acres each year. Many of those are human induced. With that in mind, I created a line of speakers that makes people face the reality of burned trees. Many have never seen wildfire or its consequences. In a poetic form, these speakers are shouting to us how they’re hurting.
The logo was inspired by the rugged edges of trunks. The lower case appealed to a warm feeling, embracing everyone to reconnect with nature through beautiful natural design. Repurposing burned trees reminds us of its natural beauty and how it can have an afterlife that affects others to be conscious of their actions.
