Dedalica - Art in Technology

Dedalica - Art in technology is an Italian company based in Florence , which produces entirely handmade terracotta high-end audio speakers.
We offer a new concept of speaker as core of the living space and furnishing with top quality finishes, customization and performance.
Our creations can be integrated in any furniture style and space thanks to over 500 finishes options ( 24K gold leaves, bronze, colors and glazes ) , from modern to classical, from indoor to outdoor/gardens, from portable to fixed installation ( wall/roof/floor suspension, for shelf, floor pedestal.... ) .

Our motto is: «DEDALICA, THE GOOD-LOOKING SOUND»

Dedalica produces loudspeakers with best in class design and sound quality.

All products are hand built with Terracotta, using the centuries-old principles and techniques of the ceramic craftsmanship of Impruneta, the same ones used by Brunelleschi to build the cupola of the Duomo of Florence.

Dedalica offers everyone the possibility to have a piece of history and Tuscan uniqueness in their living room, with a catching design and extraordinary sound experience.

Dedalica innovates within tradition: the desire of discovering the ancient artisan generation and the passion in the field of acoustics have given birth to a new project of innovation within tradition. Each audio system has its own history and uniqueness of expression although the shapes are perfect, there can never be an element identical to the other, and each hand and firing give birth to a unique and unrepeatable product. The combination of essential shapes, natural materials and the great desire for sound testing create a unique sound experience

Dedalica innovates discovering Terracotta’s acoustic capacity with the latest technology:
The sound of waves propagates spherically. The spherical speaker enclosure guarantees the highest quality of sound thanks to the absence of edges that allows to cancel the internal refractions and to absorb concentric sound waves.
Tuning parameters are: thickness, size of the sphere, firing of material, structure of the main frame supporting the loudspeakers.
Cross-over filter are duly designed and developed in house by Dedalica.
Lean and standard production work flow in place for the continuous improvement, targeting best in class efficiency.

Zefira is the portable solution with reduced and compact sizes; a terracotta sphere rests on all type of surface without using pedestals, providing maximum freedom of use without need of any installations. The system consists of an integration of a speaker unit pointing upwards and an over- turned cone, allowing the diffusion of sound in all directions. Out of all systems, this is the sole developed as a single audio unit only, being able to cover the full space with its sound diffusion. Zefira is the portable solution characterized by the perfect integration of two elements of terracotta, the sphere and the cone. Zefira can be moved either from one room to another or from one building to another, without any restriction for installation. An aesthetic design for an all in one solution able to provide full mobility, independence and dynamism.
The small size does not limit the acoustic quality, actually can guarantee a wide dynamic range and a clean sound for all musical genres even at low frequencies, thanks to the innovative use of Terracotta and the development of an efficient omnidirectional diffusion system. The answer is incredibly clear, natural and thanks to the design of the top cone, which spreads the sound at 360 °, can be appreciated from any position is listened from. It is a highly versatile and “user friendly” acoustic diffuser due to its small size and light weight. The long battery life allows it to be moved easily in different places. The ease of use, does not require the installation of any app or software, allowing the wireless connectivity with any audio source via bluetooth: from Android smartphones to the Apple devices, from tablets to PC’s or other equipment. From endless applications of use from business to consumer scope.

Dedalica products are available in a variety of colours, decorations and
finishes for both parts in Terracotta and iron. These variations ,available only with limited editions, are the result of customer customization along with Dedalica designers . The research for new designs allows Dedalica to enchant the customer and to explore new artistic possibilities.



Tre Vie system offers an integration of three homogeneous elements that develop vertically offering a gradual reduction of their dimensions. The Terracotta spheres rest on particular pedestals and stand one on top of the other thanks to spacer elements. Each sphere reproduces a range of specific frequencies: the woofer with the sphere at the base has been designed to have a volume able to reproduce balanced and deep low frequencies; the midrange has been placed centrally so that the speaker’s architecture is effective in reproducing the mid frequencies; the tweeter with the smallest sphere has been positioned at such a height as to reach the listener’s ear for the highest quality of acoustic detail. The results are unique aesthetic variants, able to satisfy both classical and modern forms, for the harmony of the whole.
The innovation of using Terracotta and the development of its resonant characteristics, offer a well-extended and natural response, uniform and with the control of distortion at high power. The bass are powerful and controlled, with high dynamicity and an image extended in width and depth with excellent evidence of micro detail. The internal composition and the electronics are the technology of “TRE VIE SYSTEM” that is characterized by: sound absorbers, crossover with high quality inductors, metaloxide resistors and polypropylene capacitors. Its strong frequency extension and high dynamism and transparency make the three-way diffuser suitable for all music programs: from piped music to the reproduction of high-definition audio-video content such as Blue-Ray in 4K.

The Full Range system consists of two Terracotta spherical diffusers whose individual loudspeakers are able to reproduce the complete range of acoustic frequencies, from bass to treble. The two spheres are independent but should be paired for a perfect stereo performance. Each sphere rests on pedestals, there are also two versions suspended on the wall or on the ceiling. In the first case the pedestals are available in two different heights: a high version designed to be placed directly and ground and a bookshelf. The spheres are not anchored to the pedestals but completely independent and orientable; in the suspended versions it is also possible to adjust the height. The versatility and modularity of this system allow the user a total freedom of orienting sound and application in any living scenario.
The innovative use of Terracotta and the development of its resonant characteristics, offer a well-extended and natural response, both at the tonal level and the sound image, well focused, detailed and coherent. This is possible thanks to the single source of virtual point emission and the lightness of the paper cone, compensated by its rigidity due to the bamboo fibres. Its almost resistive impedance and good sensitivity make it an extremely easy to control load, ideal for valve and monotriode amplifiers. Particularly recommended uses: Hi-fi systems, valve hi-fi systems, audio-video systems in high definition and piped music.

Riccardo Prosperi in art SIMAFRA and his contemporary art for Dedalica.

Fire, Water, Air and Earth are the critical energy forces that sustain life and govern human beings. The four elements are present all around and within the individual as they are the foundation of our life. From the air we breathe to the earth beneath our feet, from the water we drink to the heat of the sun, each of the elements is vital to our existence. Without just one of these elements, all life on the planet would cease to exist. By connecting with them and understanding their presence in us, we become aware of our connection with nature, its ecosystem and our relationship with the entire cycle of life. Every breath of air brings more awareness into our physical being on earth, while sun lighting and heating offer more brightness to our existence that evolves continuously like a fluid flow of the water.

Dedalica embraces the inspiration of Savio Firmino, the milestone of the handcrafted furnishing Tuscan tradition and starts a unique partnership. Both tell the desire to innovate, to discover and to propose an innovative design. The introduction of an exclusive decoration, characterized by the cast of natural leaves on the spherical surface of the loudspeakers or the integration of symbols of the ancient Florentine tradition such as a pine cone, elevate the Dedalica product line with a prestigious classic style.

The Zefira omnidirectional loudspeaker developed with Savio Firmino, recall the main subject of the nature with the addition of a pine cone entirely hand made in wood and finished in brass. This is a symbol of the old Florentine tradition, which lends uniqueness keeping the armony of shapes and an intense touch with the nature.

FULL RANGE Speaker with an exclusive decoration characterized by the mold of natural leaves on the spherical surface of the resonant loudspeaker. A complex processing technique able to enhance the veins and the irregularity of the shape of the leaves. The cast of the leaves on the surface in terracotta is decorated by the mastery of Savio Firmino through gold leaf 24k finishes, while the iron covers of the audio speakers and the support base are brass finished
