fiddle & hammer, a milwaukee-based furniture company, is dedicated to the creation of handmade heirloom-quality furniture.
owned and led by jordan waraksa — originally a sculptor and violinist — the studio is dedicated to using the best materials available and traditional joinery, fusing those mediums with a modern aesthetic. overall, the pieces expresses a love of wood, music, and a rich industrial past.

 

presented at wanted design manhattan during new york design week 2016, the ‘bellaphone’ is a wooden horn speaker whose shape acoustically amplifies devices hidden within its base. developed over the last decade, the horn is a testament to the resonant and warm qualities of the wood from which they are carved, sourced from reclaimed tequila and whiskey barrels. the pieces range in size from a two foot edition to massive six foot tall piece, and can be integrated into any system or application — from mobile devices to home audio systems and theaters. original prototypes were originally designed by waraksa to perform the music he writes and records. see a video of the making of ‘bellaphone’ below.
