There is something to be said for the beauty and sophistication that comes with simple design. And while we like to share the wackiest and freakiest of findings with you, we also can’t resist showcasing well done art and design, like the Koostik solid wood iPod and iPhone dock. The Koostik is a natural alternative to the electronically amplified iPhone sound dock. The unit works by amplifying the iPhone or iPod’s own speaker volume output up to 2- 4 times (Think of a solid body guitar that’s unplugged-you strum the strings and get a little bit of sound. But if those strings are placed over a hollow body guitar and you strum the strings-you suddenly have acoustic music. The same principal is at work with koostik.) And if you are short on space but don’t want to compromise big sound, check out the mini Koo for iPhone and iPod as well. We love the clean lines, the sleek design and the use of organic materials. And guess what? NO cords! Awesome. Whoa-worthy for sure.
