Lvbag ImageBang & Olufsen’s new mobile phone, Serene, was presented to the public at the Louis Vuitton grand store opening on Champs Elysées in Paris for the very first time. To accompany the new mobile phone, Serene, Louis Vuitton has developed a leather case specifically and exclusively for Bang & Olufsen.

SereneLoyal to the vision of their founders, both companies share the same passion for innovation and modernity. From the start, both have established a tradition for creating state of the art products that use the newest materials and technologies, while paying careful attention to elegance, beauty and durability.

The leather case contains a main compartment for Serene and a front compartment for a Bluetooth headset. It has a removable leather necklace and a belt loop, so you have different options for carrying your mobile phone.

Hidden hoover

Airpuff 05 BCampeggi’s “Airpouf” - designed by Lorenzo Damiani - is a hoover which can be placed wherever to welcome your guests, comfortable as sitting place but also as home appliance. The fusion between these two elements gives birth to a new typology of design items. An hoover-pouf covered with coloured fabric completely removable. It appears like a sphere with three holes: the first one for the draft tube, the second one for the start button and the last one for the air-escaping; three coloured spheres close the holes while using the pouf as a sit and fly off when you turn on the hoover hidden inside it.

I’ve seen the prototypes early this year in Milano, but I’ve never seen them in a shop until today. Even on their website they aren’t presented. Is there really a market for a “hoover-pouf”? Hmm, wait and see…

Adidas polar
Have you already heard about the new cooperation between adidas and Polar?

In august they’ve announced “The world’s first integrated training system” for next spring.

How does it work? Special fibers bonded onto adidas tops, work in conjunction with Polar’s Wear Link™ technology to eliminate the need for a separate chest strap to monitor heart rate. Just snap the tiny Polar WearLink connector onto the front of the shirt and go. The data is sent to the Polar RS 800™ wrist-mounted running computer, which easily displays and records all information in real time. Simply put, your shirt talks to your running computer.
 
Polar

The adiStar Fusion shoe has a strategically placed cavity in the midsole which can house the very light Polar s3™ Stride Sensor, making it easier to use, more comfortable and more consistently accurate than top-of-shoe systems. And you won’t even know it’s there when your shoe is talking to your running computer.
 
Information like speed and distance, chronograph functions, along with heart rate, are also shown on the RS800™ in real time. And when the workout is over, all data can be downloaded onto a computer so workouts can be easily managed and analyzed, meaning the whole system talks to you.
for Polar Electro.

Purchasing the entire system — Polar RS 800™, Polar s3™ Stride Sensor, adiStar Fusion top and adiStar Fusion shoe — will be around 640 Euros/680 Dollars. The products are available as separate pieces as well, and available in spring of 2006.

Serenemobile1-1

Our new friends at Charles and Marie have found another wonderful gem: A new ‘fashion’ phone created by Bang & Olufsen and Samsung - that looks refreshingly different than the other ‘fashion’ phones - the Serene. It is so refreshing because they have reinvented the rotary dial and left the unnecessary gizmo’s away. …enabling comfort and convenient communications… Obviously all the data is easily exchangeable from your existing B&O devices, so no more adding numbers… What do you mean you don’t have a B&O phone?

We also wanted to take a moment and point all of you who haven’t seen it, to Charles and Marie’s wonderful site. It’s a great blog - with more coming (we can’t wait) - they will open a very unique shop concept very soon as well. So head over to Charles and Marie, sign up for the newsletter and tell all your friends about it. By the way, Josh Spear is involved with it as well, so that should be plenty of good reasons…

Marcel WandersOur new friends at Charles and Marie pointed us into this direction and this guy is really phenomenal: Marcel Wanders - Dutch designer who started with the iconic Knotted Chair for Droog Design in 1996. During the following years he cooperated with a lot of goodies from the furniture industry leading to such wonderful cooperations like the one with Bisazza this year in Milano… and now?

Now Wanders’ wonders ecstasize the consumer electronic industry…cooperating with what?…a vacuum cleaner manufacturer????

YES - Wanders’ wonder! …and look at this…
Theatre
“Theatre” is a wooden side table in which a home cinema set is integrated - DVD speaker and subwoofer - everything is included…
Egg
…and should be accompanied by four highly decorated satellite speakers - called “Egg” - for digital surround sound! Thanks to Charles and Marie for this wonderful tip…

Triobike
It has been discussed in some blogs last month… but apparently we sometimes simply miss really good ideas. This is one - and it’s worth to be mentioned again!

A carrierbike is a fantastic invention for transporting the kids in. But once the kids have been delivered in day care/kindergarten and you are working the pedals, it is probably one of the most useless inventions.

With the Danish designed triobike, you can easily take of the front carrier and change the carrierbike into a bike and a pushchair. The trioBike also gives couples the possibility, of one delivering the kids and the other picking them up. With each of you having your own bike, one can put on the carrier, deliver the kids and take it off at the institution. Later on the other can ride to the institution, put on the carrier and ride home with the kids.

Sai SoSai So - meaning “reconstructed” - takes fines silk of Japanese kimonos to create contemporary fashion pieces, accessories and furniture.

Japanese culture prizes the flair of the moment, with which each kimono is made and painted and because of which each is inevitably unique. Sai So reanimates those unique silks with a comparable flair, creating new pieces, themselves unique, each a delicate and perfect bridge between an ancient art and contemporary living.

Here are some impressions from Sai-So’s spring/summer collection 2006…

Merrell
MERRELL was dedicated to the outdoor journey of discovery - the search for self-knowledge, meaning, friendship, and fulfillment that links the world’s people who enjoy the outdoors. Since their beginning 20 years ago, they have maintained their passion for innovative outdoor designs and fine craftsmanship… but at the end their products were more functional than aesthetically desirable.

This has changed dramatically during the last two years. More and more of their new shoe designs do really look cool and do address an urban audience.

Merrell

Two weeks ago they opened a new outlet in Frankfurt. While store-checking Frankfurt’s city yesterday I discovered the new store and first pieces of their new “Shelter for your stuff” packs&bags-collection that have been announced at the beginning of this year to be in the market by september.
