The Artful Speaker
If you are stuck for a truly unique Christmas or birthday present, then a piece by contemporary artist and designer John Farnham could well enable you to stop looking.
The items are appealing as they fuse the traditional orchestra with the digital age, and the sound of the MP3. They offer a great centrepiece for a study, living room or functional piece in an office, and are mounted on high quality timber bases, with brass phone holders to enable sounds to be projected through the instrument, putting a contemporary twist on the gramophone.
Should the novelty and bespoke nature of these instruments not quite cut it, you have the option to request a one-off commission by application, and as such one can select a personal item, vintage steering wheel or suchlike to be adapted especially.
Items within the regular range are priced at £599 and the collection is available at artfulspeakers.co.uk
