Since the introduction of the walkman and the earplugs, music is experienced in a very private setting, also in public space. The Fono makes music public again and breathes new life into the concept of the street musician. The grey concrete sculpture enables kids to hang out with their friends and listen together to the music that they want to play and hear. According to Rob Tuitert, one of the designers at Yalp, the Fono is very easy to use — you don’t need specific DJ skills, neither do you need to carry a suitcase loaded with vinyl records. The outdoor turntable is smartphone-compatible, runs on solar energy, and has a roof so that you can use it when it rains. Sounds good! There’s only one little thing: Who wants to live next to a Fone?
