These fancy home accessories are wonderfully functional and opposingly sculptural. The ceramic iPhone megaphone is all curves, perfect for playing music in your home. In contrast, the hexagonal wine shelf is all beautiful angles. It's tough to choose! If you had a magic genie, which would you ask for?
Italian designer En & Is created the Megaphone, a beautiful ceramic amplifier handcrafted in Italy. Because of its passive amplifier design, it requires no electricity. Simply insert your iPhone or iPod Touch, and it's ready to go. It comes in white, black or gold. To see it in action, check out the video at En & Is.
On the other hand, the hexagon might be one of nature's most perfect shapes. The Drona wine shelf by Steric Design is handcrafted from locally sourced, air-dried walnut. It's also available in cherry or maple. This beautiful shelf is not limited to holding wine bottles. With slots large enough to hold seven bottles, the Drona has room to display books, photo frames and curios.
