Bogota, Colombia-based Houd has developed a beautiful wood speaker that naturally amplifies sound from your smartphone or tablet without the need for additional electricity. The concave acoustic box is made from wood typically used to craft musical instruments, and it has a high density to better amplify sound waves through resonance. Simply rest your device atop the box and it will fill the room with the warm resonant sound quality of wood.
