‘fundamentally, the marriage of fashion and functional design to create a storage element for headphones simply didn’t exist,’ describes chief designer mika nenonen. the award winning finish industrial designer worked on many other projects included the nest thermostat and the aether cone. the flexible fluoroelastomer material makes the ‘helix’ cuff fit comfortably to the users wrist, and the anodized aluminum securely protects the headphones.
