Vahakn Matossian’s Boomboy

BoomboyVahakn Matossian’s Boomboy can hang on my desk top any time. The loudspeaker is hand carved from walnut and has a bass duct running through his body and a Bowers & Wilkins driver. The prototype holds a pencil in his little fist, but you can substitute a cable or some earbuds.
