Garvan gives shape to the emotions of sound and music. Having its roots in the true passion for sound of its two co-founders, Garvan has succeeded in combining advanced acoustic technology and elegant, innovative design, thus creating a perfect mixture of aesthetics and performance. Not only do Garvan products feature clean and essential lines, designed to convey a sense of elegance and modernity and to integrate into any kind of environment by adding a touch of exclusivity, they also deliver innovative solutions, the result of a painstaking research activity that has been opening up new opportunities in the field of flush mount systems and sound delivery.
Made in Italy quality and style are the main concepts behind each and every one of our products. Being carefully handcrafted, our products show high quality and attention to detail. We have found new and uncommon uses for exclusive materials such as steel, inox, corian and ceramics by creating unique, modern and elegant products that go beyond the limits of traditional speakers. Each product undergoes careful and rigorous testing and can be customized according to the customer's specific needs. A wide range of colors and front covers is available. Confident in our know-how, we offer a 3-year warranty on all products, with a view to showing our customers that they have made the right choice.
Garvan has always placed great importance on innovation and technology by constantly looking for new, high-tech solutions further securing the high performance of its products. In 2006 Garvan launched its revolutionary flush mount system, making speakers almost invisible by enabling them to "disappear" into the wall, thus paving the way for new and unexplored aesthetic solutions. Having introduced the use of ceramics, stainless steel and Corian®, Garvan performs special tests and studies on these materials in order to make them suitable for cabinets, both by combining them with other materials and by subjecting them to special treatments. Garvan also puts a priority on researching the application of the latest sound technologies to its products, with a view to optimizing their sound quality. The so-called G.Bass technology, for example, is applied to outdoor speakers and offers an excellent response in the low frequency region by using a double driver loaded by a transmission line, thus avoiding the use of additional subwoofers.
Garvan has available in its facility a semi-anechoic room that is being used as technological lab where acoustic measurements and tests are conducted on our products under the best possible conditions. Thanks to the excellent insulation from the outside and to the high sound absorption coefficient of its internal surfaces, which create free field conditions, the room makes it possible to perform accurate phonometric measurements without any reflections, background noises and vibrations. The room can be configured both for listening to and for performing measurements on our speakers by simply moving panels around. It actually consists of three rooms, one inside the other, each of which has its own floor, ceiling, walls and door. The innermost room, the heart of the whole structure, performs the acoustic correction, the middle room serves as acoustic insulation, while the outermost room is the original architectural structure. The measurements and tests conducted on our speakers in the semi-anechoic room are carried out with state-of-the-art microphones, hardware and software equipment allowing for the most accurate assessments.
Having been installed in private homes, shops, luxury hotels, spas and wellness centers, cruise ships and offices of important companies, and having been chosen by some of the most renowned architects on the international scene, Garvan speakers are now widely appreciated and used in the most exclusive environments. In 2011 our “Cube” speaker won the Top Design award, thanks to its ability to restyle the shapes and lines of outdoor speakers and to introduce modern and innovative solutions for gardens and swimming pools, whose originality found immediate appreciation. Over the years Garvan has cooperated with prestigious partners like Jacuzzi and Natuzzi, important Made in Italy brands that are widely appreciated both in Italy and abroad, and has supplied its products to exclusive customers like IBM and MSC Cruises. Besides taking part in prestigious international trade shows like the ISE in Amsterdam, Garvan has always been involved in the world of music, entertainment and sports. Not only has Garvan been a partner of Free Event in the organization of the aftershow parties of artists like Muse, Depeche Mode, Laura Pausini, Vasco Rossi, Ligabue, Zucchero and Black Eyed Peas, it has also been a partner of the Gresini team, an Italian motorcycle racing team currently competing in the MotoGP World Championship. Being a technical partner of the Soundtrack Stars at the International Exhibition of Cinematographic Art of the Venice Biennale, Garvan had the honor both to take part in the ceremony where the lifetime achievement award was given to Maestro Ennio Morricone, on the occasion of the memorial event for Luciano Pavarotti “Luciano’s Friend The Talent Goes On” 2012, and to supply its products for the famous Spazio Cinecittà at the Venice Film Festival, by installing its "Drop" speakers made of ceramics in both venues.
