The Ikarus is a boutique amp, designed by the Australian-born designer, artist and recording engineer Kostas Metaxas, that is a combination of high technology and thoughtful art.

This amp has a design that appears to be inspired by the iconic racing cars of the 1950s and 1960s. However, it also borrows several design cues from the annals of horological artwork. This amp is sheathed in elegant housing that is curvy in design but solid in structure, seeing as how it was crafted together from aircraft-grade aluminum.

The Ikarus boutique amp could make for a great Christmas gift for the musician in your life who also has a taste for visual art or is perhaps a bit of an auto geek or petrolhead.
