CUK Group has signed a deal to exclusively distribute the Architettura Sonora brand of speaker systems to residential and commercial integrators in the UK and Ireland. 

Launched in 2009 and based in Florence, Italy, as a division of B&C Speakers Group, Architettura Sonora (AS) is a designer of high-performing audio solutions and acoustic experiences, specialising in blending natural materials with aesthetics and point-source audio design to deliver versatile systems for the finest bespoke interior and all-weather installations. 

Its choice of natural materials such as marble and concrete in multiple finishes makes Architettura Sonora’s statement designs easy to integrate within any architectural setting while providing the ideal acoustic environments for its signature omni-directional audio systems. 

These are characterised by high efficiency and low distortion and comprise full-range dual concentric transducers featuring horn loaded Mylar diaphragm compression drivers with sophisticated phasing plugs and long excursion woofers. Architettura Sonora’s interior systems also feature elegant ceiling, wall and stand mounted directional speakers with complementary subwoofer support.

The ‘Icarus’ line of 3-inch cylinder-shaped interior speakers is fixed or directable on-wall with further stand/on-ceiling options underpinned by matching stand-integrated or freestanding subwoofers. 

Sharing the form-factor is the Daedalus, a compact 4-inch full-range directable on-wall/on-ceiling speaker. Joining these design options, the Cylinder line of full-range omnidirectional free-standing indoor/outdoor speakers is available in a range of sizes from 450-680mm (690mm with integrated table top) and with mood lighting options. Extending the choice available, the omnidirectional Spherina range of full-range pendant/stand/floor/indoor/outdoor speakers offers subwoofer and lighting options while the similar Sphere range of indoor/outdoor speakers arrives complete with integrated stands and mood lighting options. 

For where the design demands a more angular approach, the Cube range of 6.5-inch coaxial and 10-inch coaxial indoor/outdoor models is joined by a dedicated 12-inch passive subwoofer. 

Commenting on the new partnership, Architettura Sonora’s Sales Director Marco Vitti says: “The collaboration with Stuart and his team was cemented with ease, as we found immediate common ground on our corporate goals. We’re embarking on this journey with great optimism, bolstered by the enthusiasm that Stuart brings to the table. We believe that CUK Group’s specialised local expertise will be instrumental in establishing a robust footprint for AS in the UK. This partnership marks a new chapter for Architettura Sonora’s expansion, promising a specialised and extensive local presence in the UK market, orchestrated by CUK Group’s expert team.”

CUK’s MD Stuart Thomson, adds: “the AS team has done a good job building the brand and sales while operating a direct sales model. However, the potential for AS is significantly greater within a supportive, brand building distributor like CUK. CUK Group’s key aims are to better support existing clients, to increase brand awareness, and to grow the integrator base in the UK and Ireland while respecting the high end, exclusive nature of AS and its products. The AS range will be represented at CUK Group’s new showroom and training facility in Ascot, supported by wide demonstration stock availability.”
