Karen Ultralight is an electric violin, it is created through computational design systems, thus achieving a structurally ultralight instrument, calculated at the highest ergonomic and acoustic level.

The body is made of natural wood and finished in carbon fiber for a perfect sono-acoustic response and the frame is made of a mathematical structure delicately calculated for its purpose; lightweight and made by 3D printing with 100% recyclable polymers.

A perfect study of ergonomics, ultralight design and application of high-tech materials; all this integrated in an elegant and slim product.

ÀNIMA Barcelona is a firm specialised in product design. Founded in Barcelona in 2002, we have an broad international experience. We collaborate in the design and development of new products for companies in different industrial sectors.
