Italian architect and designer Moreno Ratti specializes in creating timeless marble mosaics since 2013. Back in 2015 he collaborated with Paolo Ulian to design Diamond collection of marble washbasins, and later in 2016 he created unique Suspended collection that consists of carrara marble vessels packed within resin blocks. Once again, he has converted a simple marble piece into a minimalist sound amplifier for smartphones. Dubbed as Trombetta, this marble smartphone speaker dock is the result of intricate sculpting of a single marble piece.
A horn-shaped passage is sculpted inside the marble piece, so that it offers good acoustics. Till now, there were only the wooden or metal speaker docks, but the Trombetta marble speaker dock has come out as an interesting option for people not satisfied with the sound of their smartphone or tablet. No rocket science involved, just plug your smartphone into the sound-amplifying dock to enjoy the improved music coming through the hard material.
This electric-free smartphone speaker dock is designed to take advantage of marble’s acoustical properties. Whether you are using it at home or office, it will be a visually-pleasing accessory that boosts the sound of your smartphone.
