  • This project started as a concept pitch of a bluetooth headset for Nokia based on an innovative feature to reduce background noise in a car.
  • Instead of creating another Starwars-like gadget we looked at the elegance and smooth quality of jewelry for inspiration.
  • To find the right ‘chic’ visual style we started experimenting with free-form modelling ‘Concept Shapes’ in 3D CAD.
  • Liquid Pearls.
  • Mirror of Flames.
  • Airstream Birds.
  • Silver Bow Ties.
  • Sea-shaped Icicles.
  • Finally the ‘Concept Shapes’ experiments were carefully crafted into a concept with a profound visual identity.
  • The delicate, liquid pearl-like appearance gives the headset a fabulous look and feel.
  • The natural shape is a stylish symbol for the smooth transition of sound waves trough the device.
  • The soft-touch ear piece is elegantly lofted from the glossy body, visually amplifying the signal (and the noise reduction feature).
  • NOKIA Concept Shapes the pitch: Liquid Pearl, Chic White and Iced Black.
