NOKIA CONCEPT SHAPES
by Remko Verhaagen and Eric van Dorst while employed by VanBerlo
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.
