Chikuon-Ki Piano Black (Wooden smartphone speaker)

The unique Chikuon-ki Piano Black speaker connects traditional handicrafts with a discovery in everyday life. This product came about as the result of riding in a car without a stereo. When a smartphone was put into the console
while playing music, the sound was unexpectedly good. Enchanted by the sound, the maker then repeatedly experimented with the most effective size and construction of wood boxes and then casually tried the local traditional lacquer finish, resulting in clear sound range from mid to high tones. With a focus on enjoying the soft sounds of the wood and no need for electricity, there is no need for any power cables or connectors, and any kind of smartphone can be used in any location. With this box you can enjoy both the beauty of the jet black lacquer and comforting sounds.
