DORODESIGN LIKES: The iTree by KMKG

iTree2-640x426

Created by Austrian architecture and design studioKMKG, The iTree is a top-quality iPhone and iPod docking station made out of a simple tree trunk. This is hollowed out using a special technique and specialized tools, expertly proportioned to produce optimum sound quality through the speakers.

Each iTree is unique – costumers choose the wood, the length and the built-in technology. They can even take a ride through the forest and pick out their own tree. The iTree is then made by hand in the “Steirische Vulkanland” region of southern Austria by carpenters “Tischlerei Lenz”, keeping the iTree local.

There are currently three types of iTree – cherry, poplar and spruce – however, almost any kind of wood can be used. The iTree is compatible with any iPhone, iPod docking station, W Lan stream unit or CD player. It can even be fitted out with a turntable.

Designers KMKG believe that good design is based on experience, it’s personal, it has a “Heimat” (“home”) and has as little design as possible. Just like the iTree.

  2. se però non c’è come è mancato dagli anni settanta il valore socio-tecnologico condiviso e qualcuno che lo monitori dall’esterno la vedo dura…

    mi pare che la cultura del design e le possibilità di acquisto si siano fermate al nord o mi sbaglio?
