New element of the iconic Homage Collection, Il Cremonese derives from Lilium. Thru to the highest brand’s tradition and to the history of Italian violin making, with this project Sonus faber pays a tribute to the great master Antonio Stradivari a luthier and artist who revolutionized traditional violin craftsmanship, and continued the work of Andrea Amati to create new concepts of form and finishing that are still appreciated and cherished today the world over.
This project is a tribute not only to the great violin maker, but also to one of Stradivari’s most famous violins, Il Cremonese, celebrating its 300th anniversary in 2015.
The innovative five sides cabinet “Rhomboidal diamond design” optimizes the structural solidity of the wooden cabinets with a unique diamond shape that is immediately recognizable. Inspired by the shape of Lilium, Il Cremonese introduces clean lines and an elegant, minimal, and sharp design. The tilt of the cabinet, its five non-parallel walls structure and the sides applied on the enclosure, increases structural strength of this loudspeaker system.
The solutions adopted eliminate any possible resonance thanks to very strong reinforcing structures strategically placed within the enclosure. This new and atypical Sonus faber form represents an evolution towards technological and visual innovation, simultaneously maintaining the historic milestones that marked the history of violin making, as well as the history of the Sonus faber brand itself.
