Speakers Made From China – Made in Japan

 |  |  |  |  |  |  July 15, 2007

These compact speakers feature enclosures made entirely from an unlikely material, porcelain.

Porcelain Speakers from Noburu Kawamura

According to Japanese designer, Noboru Kawamura, the china construction is said to provide a warm, tender sound that traditional wood or plastic enclosures can’t achieve.

Each speaker measures about 5″ (w) x 5″ (d) x 6″ (h), so they’d look nice sitting on a bookshelf. I couldn’t find out the maximum wattage for these, but I can’t imagine that they can crank out enough amplitude to crack their own fragile enclosures.

They’re available from the shop with the best name ever, Boo-Hoo-Woo, for ¥48,000 a pair (about $392 US dollars.)
