Harmonizing Innovation: Robkoo Strikes Gold Again with Clarii mini at the iF Design Awards

Robkoo has once again secured the prestigious iF Design Award, this time with their innovative Clarii mini following the success of Wind Synthesizer R1.

The Clarii mini, a compact and cutting-edge musical instrument, has captured the attention of the design world with its blend of elegance and modern technology. Like its predecessor, Wind Synthesizer R1, Clarii mini is designed to offer a seamless learning curve, allowing users to grasp its intricacies in a mere 2 minutes and be performance-ready in just 2 weeks. This accelerated learning process is a hallmark of Robkoo’s commitment to making music accessible to all. Similar to R1, Clarii mini boasts a sleek design that marries traditional acoustic instrument aesthetics with contemporary technological features. Its compact size and intuitive interface make it a versatile and user-friendly musical tool for aspiring musicians.

Back to Robkoo’s Clarii mini, the idea is to create a new type of wind instrument that is more versatile and expressive. With the dedicated effort by their design team, the resulting form of Clarii mini turns out to be elegantly simplistic and futuristic. The most interesting design feature is its Shake & Play sounds that can turn Clarii into an e-percussion instrument. Also, its built-in accelerometer lets player pitch bend, vibrato, and make creative crafts by simply lifting up. Combined with portable design, bluetooth connectivity, expandable sound bank and intuitive panel layout, Clarii mini offers a brand new experience for music enthusiasts and creative explorers with no barriers in playing music.
