Jónófón by Jón Helgi

Gudrun Lilja

Jónófón is an acoustic vinyl-record-player that uses a papercup and a horn made out of paper to amplify the music from the vinyl record.

Jónófón strips down a technology that is hidden to most people and copys the design of the classic heavy gramophone. The gramophone that was invented more than 120 years ago by the german Emile Berliner, was a kind of a furniture that played heavy records through a big metal horn. Jónófón however uses a much simpler and lighter form where the record is in the foreground.

The gramophone is sort of a symbol for the beginning of recorded music, but before its time there was no other option but live music.
