ZEMI Aria is the creation of Italian artisan Francesco Pellisari www.nacsound.com and renowned European artist and industrial designer Ron Arad www.ronarad.co.uk. Their collaborative effort has produced a music system that sounds as stunning as it looks. The sound is powerful and precise and ZEMI’s high gloss spherical shape is the perfect complement to a well-designed interior.
Francesco Pellisari was born into a family of Italian artists. His early days were spent with poets, sculptors and painters who heavily influenced his life. Francesco’s passion for music led him to study speaker design and acoustics under Roy Alison, founder of Acoustic Research, one of the preeminent acousticians of the 20th century. Under Roy’s tutelage, Francesco developed his NAC Sound line of porcelain speakers known throughout the world for their stunning beauty and realistic sound reproduction. ZEMI is Francesco’s latest creation, the perfect blend of technical savvy and patented artistic design.
Francesco’s collaboration with Ron Arad on the aesthetic of the ZEMI Aria resulted in ZEMI’s stunning appearance. Ron Arad’s artwork and architecture spans the globe. His exhibitions have been in MoMA in New York City, the Pompidou in Paris, the Barbican in London, etc. His furniture is included in some of the finest art collections in the world. He has conceptualized products for some of the most forward-thinking design companies on the planet, such as Swarovski, Moroso, Alessi and Magis. Ron’s influence on the styling of ZEMI resulted in the clean lines and soft, yet distinctive form.
ZEMI is an objet d’art. It’s shape will not only complement any discerning interior, but it will enhance the space with beautiful sound.
The Power of Emotion
Music should make you feel. ZEMI Aria was designed to evoke the emotion of a live performance. ZEMI delivers this effect with power and precision. ZEMI is designed with three digital audio amplifiers that drive 125 watts (RMS) of power through two silk dome tweeters and one high-output carbon composite woofer. The amplifiers are directly coupled to the drivers, minimizing power loss and distortion and maximizing the accuracy and volume. ZEMI's "Best in Class" 106dB of audio output will effortlessly fill even very large rooms.
ZEMI's unique spherical shape is patented. The internal structure of the sphere is engineered to cancel unwanted internal cabinet resonances that can unfavorably color the music. The unusual three-dimensional front baffle, which locates the drivers on different planes, is constructed to optimize the flow of the audio waves as they emanate from the speakers into the room. The result is rich bass, crisp highs, and natural sounding vocals- the sound the artist intended you to hear.
