The en&is Megaphone was designed as a low tech product to balance the decidedly high tech iPhone or iPod with which it is used. Made out of ceramic with an Italian walnut stand--with a lovely tapered form modeled on turn-of-the-century phonographs--Megaphone is a large passive amplifier that naturally magnifies the sound coming out of your device's speakers. The ceramic material, and the fact that it's elevated, allows sound vibrations to really bounce around, resulting in magnified sound (without any distortion) and improved bass.
"en" is Enrico Bosa, and "is" is Isabella Lovero. Together, they are en&is, a home furnishings design team based in Milan. In a world overflowing with objects, their goal is "to create a little magic" and design those rare pieces that are both functional and poetic, practical yet able to induce smiles. en&is designs are all designed and made in Italy.
