The wood is of Japanese Zelkova and Japanese Cherry Blossom varieties. The lack of metal assembly parts is said to give these high end speakers an acoustic advantage of their competitors and they look really sweet. As you can see in the subtitled video, the sphere is made of two halves that screw together using embedded threading in the speaker itself:
