Houd was born from the collaboration between David Sandoval, and Gustavo Huertas. In 2012 they began working on designing home speakers, and other accessories. Their activities started ranging from market analysis, defining concepts, project engineering, industrial design analysis of media and the final step of launching products to the market.
Their approach to projects is aimed at creating poetic objects that tell something to those who observe them, creating a little magic with their designs so as to make every room, place, or environment an enjoyable place to be.
Their products are speakers with design and quality materials, based on two types of amplification. The first one is completely natural and acoustic, it operates according to the position of the speaker of mobile devices without electricity. Apart of it, we created a solid wood cabinet, which makes the best amplified sound waves, creating resonance depending on the surface. All our products are made with the best wood and hand-crafter one at a time by skilled artisans.
David and Gustavo consider their products to be an active amplification of traditional audio components, looking for a stylish alternative to conventional speakers, combined with an emotional appeal on a minimalist design language. "
