Sørensen is designed with the goal of creating uniquely intimate social listening experiences to promote togetherness and connection through the sharing of identities. Vinyl, as a physical audio format, is ideal for displaying and sharing one’s personal music taste with others. The equipment required to listen to vinyl naturally encourages group listening and the creation of listening spaces. Therefore, Sørensen , as contemporary, vintage-inspired stereo console aims to be a transformative audio furniture piece that connects people across generations through the social sharing of music.

Illinois Design Consulting is a professionally managed design consulting organization with 60+ student members from 15+ disciplines, including human-computer interaction, industrial design, graphic design, information science, technology management, psychology, and computer science.
