Pioneer DJ has revealed a new transparent CDJ and mixer.
Designed by Virgil Abloh, the CDJs and mixer are to appear at the artist and fashion entrepreneur’s Figures Of Speech exhibition at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art from 10th June to 22nd September.
The transparent models of Pioneer’s CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2 are, according to a statement, intended to inspire “different sound while DJing. And perhaps a new way for music technology and human interaction to equal a different result”.
It's not yet known if the transparent set-up will be going on general sale in future.
Earlier this month, Benji B shared images of his Abloh-designed Pioneer DJM 900. It comes in off-white with bright red knobs.
Tickets for Abloh’s exhibition are on sale here.
