Joey Roth and Grovemade Team Up For Wood Speakers

Joey Roth Wood Speakers for Grovemade

Joey Roth has once again created a lustworthy set of speakers that would look amazing at home, on your desk at work, or even on display in a modern art museum.

(I’m a big fan of Joey Roth, and have featured his Ceramic Speakers and Sorapot Teapot on the site before.)

Made of either walnut or maple, the speakers are machined out of solid wood for wood’s superior acoustic properties that create clear and nuanced sound, and then mounted on stainless steel stands. A mathematically ideal horn is integrated directly into the enclosure, boosting the speaker’s low frequency response without the group delay and phase distortion inherent to more common bass reflex enclosures.

Each set of speakers is crafted one at a time in the Grovemade workshop in Portland, Oregon, and requires hours of CNC machining and skilled hand forming to complete.

You won’t find a better looking set of speakers, and with prices that start at just $499, it’s a reachable splurge for the person that wants their speakers to look as good as they sound.

…Joey Roth makes Ceramic Speakers?

Ceramic Speakers

Joey Roth’s Sorapot defined how stylish a teapot could be, and now he’s hoping to bring that style to the speaker world as well, with a set of ceramic speakers that are “designed to leave music untouched”.

These warm, dry, and detailed speakers feature 4″ full-range drivers and a T-class amplifier, encased in acoustically dead porcelain and cork, creating a remarkably simple path from source to ear.

If you like the looks and want a set of your own, then keep an eye on Joey’s site for the pre-order, or follow him on Twitter for more constant updates.

…The Sorapot is the perfect teapot?


The Sorapot by Joey Roth has taken the design world by storm by combining an architectural shape and simple functionality into a teapot that “brings tea’s quiet beauty into sharp focus.

It’s made from 304 stainless steel, borosilicate glass (Pyrex), and food-grade silicone for long lasting good looks, and “articulates the ritual of tea making in a thoroughly modern way”.

In addition to good looks, the Sorapot also stays green with a sustainable approach to packaging, including post-consumer recycled cardboard and molded pulp, natural jute rope, and the avoidance of tape or staples. (See TreeHugger for more details on the packaging.)

If you agree that this just might be the perfect teapot, then head on over to the site with &179 in hand, and one can be yours.
