en&is: gold and black megaphone now in production

italian designers isabella lovero and enrico bosa of en&is studio have updated ‘megaphone’,
a ceramic passive amplifier created for the iphone and ipod touch. using no electricity,
the sound waves are reverberated and distributed throughout the space. originally only available
in white, the polished black and hand-painted gold versions further accentuate the contours of the form. 
 
both the ceramic body and the solid wooden stand is developed and hand-made in italy.
although the black finish is applied in the same manner as the white, the gold version requires skilled decorators
to paint the surface in the 24kt precious metal, after which it is fired in 720°C (1328°F). the high temperature assures
the glazing is cohesive and the material is long lasting. the high gloss finish found on all three options are to help
the sound resonate while the stand lifts the frame off any surface, increasing the vibrations emitted from the object.
