BELLAPHONE IS BELLISIMA

Gorgeous Wooden Horn Speakers are Made From Reclaimed Liquor Barrels.

By Lucy Wang, Inhabitat.

Fantastic sound and good looks aren’t the only perks of this gorgeous wooden speaker—it also has a great backstory as a former liquor barrel. Milwaukee-based furniture company Fiddle + Hammer designed the Bellaphone, a wooden horn speaker hand-carved from reclaimed wood into a shape that acoustically amplifies the speakers hidden in its base.

Fiddle + Hammer was founded by Jordan Waraksa, who brought his background in sculpture and music into the making of the Bellaphone. The design was developed over a decade.

“The horn is a testament to harnessing the resonant and warm qualities of the wood which they are carved from,” said Waraksa. Each custom-built speaker can be built to a variety of sizes, from two feet in height to a towering six feet.

Waraksa has thus far created a few prototype Bellaphones from reclaimed tequila and whiskey barrels. He also writes and records music that he tests out on his creations. The Bellaphone was recently presented at Wanted Design for New York Design Week.
