The Amplifying Desk

In the humble, and frequently boring, world of desks, this is a giant amongst men.

Seoul-based industrial designer Jina U has designed this innovative desk, which incorporates a built-in mobile phone dock connected to a large copper amplifier in the shape of an old phonograph horn, creating a low-tech speaker, which requires no electricity to work.

The rest of the desk is made of acacia wood and steel, with a cool white, turquoise and brown finish. Work in style and accompanied by your favourite tunes; we imagine a bit of ragtime or Charleston would complement it perfectly.
