Louis is a wooden analog speaker designed by Paolo Cappello for Newblack that mimics the tone of retro vinyl records. Suitable for all smartphones, the instrument amplifies the music saved on the device from its trumpet-like opening.
The design draws upon the iconic gramophone shape through its subtle curved form and inverted valve. The sound, which is projected from its centre, expels a vintage quality, adding a new nostalgic layer to the existing song.
Louis is available in three different colours: natural, graphite and yellow and comes with an app that connects Louis with an iPhone.
