LINKFACE DEAR
Iconic identity within soft familiarity.

Dear is a bio sensor embedded headphone that monitors and protects the listener’s hearing, designed for the Korean brand Linkface. Targeting gradeschoolers and young teens, the noise canceling headphone guides a healthy listening behavior in order to minimize the risk of hearing loss.

Introducing a new technology into a familiar product category, the design contains an iconic identity that makes the technology instantly recognizable. The headphone’s overall design uses minimal shapes, soft colored plastics, and fabrics supplied by Kvadrat to provide a comfortable, friendly, and premium experience. However, the faded neon silicone bio sensors with precise logo and typography create a strong contrast to the mostly quiet design, acting as a fashionable accent and giving the product a unique presence. Also, the design solves the ergonomics while having the most effective sensor position and layout.

Dear has received the CES 2020 Innovation Award and has been exhibited in CES 2020 (Consumer Electronics Show).
