Get ready to get swept off your feet as we explore their shape, colour and function in detail. The term “World Design Day” is also famous by the abbreviation “WDD”. This day was originally spearheaded by the professional association of American designers to honour the creative work of designers. Only celebrated in the USA initially, this day is now also celebrated in Germany. That has inspired us to take a look at the products from the field of technology as well as the trendy accessories in a chic design, which we would like to introduce to you in the following.
Minimalist in-ear headphone design
The new minimalist in-ear headphone design by Panasonic promises optimal musical experience with a premium metal housing and high grade copper cable. With a high-resolution transmission range of up to 50,000 hertz and an 11.5-millimeter converter for voluminous bass and clear trebles, the Panasonic RP-HDE10 delivers high-quality sound performance. Its light weight, long cable and exchangeable adapters ensure optimum comfort.
Trendy over-ear design
Panasonic has designed a trendy and voguish product. It can be perceived as a fashion accessory with its lightweight over-ear design of the RP-HD7 headphone model. The closed-loop stereo headphone offers matchless sound quality thanks to sound reproduction in the frequency range of up to 40,000 hertz and a maximum input line of 1,000 milliwatts. The weight of only 216 grams enriches mobile music experience as the cable promises a lot of flexibility with a length of 1.2 metres.
Product highlight in the watch section
Are you familiar with the new Twist design yet? The Twist was a popular dance form in the 1960s and the self-explanatory term finds its origin in English. The square-shaped ladies watch by Rolf Cremer lives up to its name. The pretty, twisted design with a brown dial slightly inclined to the side along with silver hands facilitates faster reading of time. With rounded corners and a vintage looking brown leather strap, the watch appears to be velvety and modern. It is equipped with scratch-resistant mineral glass, a stainless steel case and a matte clasp. The reliable quartz mechanism ensures the exact time.
The men’s watch Masterpiece Gravity by Maurice Lacroix is its absolute counterpart. It is the first watch with an all-siliconescapement.
Instant camera with a selfie lens
Comeback of the instant camera: The instax mini 9 from Fujifilm is an absolute product highlight. Not only the nostalgics, but also the selfie generation will take delight in it. A selfie mirror and a special selfie lens make self-recording a child’s play. The practical wrist strap helps ensure that the camera fits well in the hand. The stylish camera in a compact design is available in different shades of colour such as cobalt blue, ice blue, flamingo pink, lime green and smoky white.
System camera with 4K quality
Do you wish to take pin-sharp and blur-free photos and videos? The system camera Mark III by Olympus in a trendy retro look with 4K-quality is just the thing for you. Its lightweight feature has intuitive controls. The operation that is possible via the smartphone or tablet thanks to WLAN, can also be carried out via the selection of the short-cut keys. The menu icons will then be displayed. They can also be easily activated via the touch display. This is not only applicable to snapshots, but also to functions such as long exposures, Focus Bracketing or multiple exposures. With the additional multisnap feature, you will never miss a single moment (8.6 fps).
