VoIP phone made of wood!

Now you can Skype in style! This is the world’s first VoIP phone made of wood! Two years ago HULGER launched the ZIRICOTE concept design made from an African wood to huge acclaim and this month they debuted the finished PAPPA phone, with a design more suited to production. It is handcrafted from a sustainable American walnut, in Montreal Canada, by a company called Furni. Below is the ZIRICOTE and hit “more” to see several shots of the PAPPA.
