Capsule - Smart Photo Assistant Device by Jarmo Ikonen

Capsule - Media Device - Industrial Design.jpg

I have been working with Capsule Labs team for over a year with the industrial design aspect and now the product has gone live in Kickstarter. Capsule is a smart photo assistant that automatically backs-up photos in a private and secure home based cloud. The end goal and challenge for the design was to achieve modern, timeless and stylish form. I was requested to avoid traditional box-like or bent aluminum designs. I was presented a selection of inspirational images that included art installations, sculptures and futuristic products. I did produce many different ideas for the Capsule and from these ideas we came up with a design that merges all the technical requirements and aesthetic inspirations. I used simple sphere shape as the basic plan for the device with natural patterns and shapes. If you are interested supporting great new photography product, go and check Capsule at Kickstarter >

Neurosonic Lounge Chair Receives Design from Finland Mark by Jarmo Ikonen

I have designed the Neurosonic Lounge Chair. It has received the Design from Finland mark. The mark indicates the origin of unique Finnish design and emphases the importance of intangible work for Finland's success and employment. Neurosonic Finland has developed a new revolutionary holistic technology to treat stress and pain symptoms with mechanical vibration. This chair uses this technology. The main focus of this project was to design a stylish and comfortable chair to be used in spas, hotels and homes. The main focus in the design was the usability and comfortability of the chair. Visually the chair seems to "float" in the air made possible by the leg structure. This form factor also enables the suppression of mechanical vibration to the floor.
