BD-1: Bluetooth Earbuds
Teenage Engineering concept bluetooth earbuds design
Concept design / Personal project / Year 2022
BD-1 is a Bluetooth earbuds inspired by the style of the synthesizer op-1 field, a flagship model of Teenage Engineering.
As a student who is passionate about industrial design, Teenage Engineering is a creative group that motivates me quite a lot.
The project, which began with personal interest, soon led to 'What would Teenage Engineering's Bluetooth Earbuds look like?'. That's how it went on.
I wanted to emphasize the aesthetics of the product by reflecting the formative characteristics of the op-1 field,
which reveals the Scandinavian minimalism style of Teenage Engineering.
It consists of earbuds and a case for them. The case features a small interaction screen that can be found in op-1 field,
which allows you to check whether it is charged or the song you are currently playing.
It provides four color ear tips. You can choose and use it according to your preference.
C to C cables are also available in four colors, a charging cable that features a curly shape.
I proceeded with the package design, too. I designed the package using the original color, orange, in a unified way.
GUI in four states exists. It inherits the iconic style of the OP-1 synthesizer.
You can check information such as the state of charge and the song being played.
Thank you for reading my project.
