Beautifully Crafted, Genuinely Useful

Beautifully Crafted, Genuinely Useful

The Access case for iPhone and iPad protects, showcases and compliments your device’s form to enhance rather than impair its functionality. A minimal leather design wraps around the exterior while suede microfiber and a single leather strap on the interior serve as a convenient utility pocket. Best of all, the case uses “micro-suction” technology to keep your phone in place, making it super easy to remove when you don’t need the case! See how it works ->

Feeling Time

Feeling Time

The Time-Touching Watch is an interesting piece of technology. It’s the kind that you wear like a bracelet and because it doesn’t have a dial, it communicates the time through touch. Essentially, it’s your arm that becomes the dial, and two ‘bumps’ serve as the watch’s hands. You can tell the time by feeling the position of the two bumps.

When Sound Met Style - Wood Earphones and Headphones by Meze

When Sound Met Style – Wood Earphones and Headphones by Meze

One of the reasons why I love what I do is reporting on stories that start from humble roots and grow on to immense fame. One such story is that of Romanian designer of Antonio Meze. The idea of designing classy earphones aside, his vision of creating a meaningful product that can be passed down to generations, has completely resonated with me. With launch of his brand’s new Meze 11 DECO Earbuds around the bend (8th December), I managed to get us a sneak peek, and of course chatted him up for some interesting bytes.

Classic Acoustics Meets Modern Tech

Classic Acoustics Meets Modern Tech

Stream nostalgia with the first ever Bluetooth gramophone, the Gramovox! The timeless design is not only aesthetically “old-school,” but also recreates the same resonant, vintage, organic sound by adhering to the same acoustical principles as the old gramophone. To achieve this, the designers worked around the philosophy that the fewer things they changed about the original, the more things would still work. Catch the vid to see how it blends classic acoustics with modern tech…

What does music mean to you?

What does music mean to you?

This was the question asked to the young participants of the competition run by Bang & Olufsen. To designers Sam Whyman & Andrew Guscott, it meant the B&O A9 – Weekender Edition. This beautiful speaker focuses on personal time, which is a luxury these days. The purpose of the design is to make you appreciate the details like the melody of the song you are listening to and of course your environment.
