Old Guitar Gets New Life as iPod Dock

by Paul Strauss

How about this for an innovative use for an old musical instrument? As part of a recycling challenge for this week’s London Design Festival, one design firm took this junked out Torre acoustic guitar and turned it into a stereo with an iPod dock.

iPod Guitar CaseMod

The Deptford Design Market Challenge encourages artists to re-purpose and recycle old found objects into new, functional items that you’d actually want to use. This particular piece started out as a beat up guitar with all its strings broken and no tuning pegs. But with a little ingenuity, the designers from Conran and Partners created a cool new iPod dock and stereo. The very idea of this gets the squeaky little wheels in my brain turning about how I might be able to put my junk to good use too.

If you happen to be in London between now and September 25th, you can check out the entire collection of reworked items at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall.
