While giant retro-looking horns and intricately carved resonating chambers are the shapes I usually associate with natural sound enhancing iPhone docks, apparently an IKEA salad bowl turned on its side works just as well. Well almost as well according to Apartment Therapy Unplggd. The Clingo ‘dock’ not only boosts the sound levels of the iPhone or iPod Touch’s built-in speakers, but it also serves as a sort of lens hood, shielding the display from ambient light. While the design is certainly simple and eye-catching, Unplggd found the sound to be “a little bit on the softer side” and chocked it up to a case of form over function. $34.99 available directly from Clingo.
