Kilo partners up with CP+B Copenhagen to Design Biodegradable Wood-Fiber Bottle for Carlsberg

In early 2015, Carlsberg and packaging company ecoXpac initiated a project, with the collaboration of the Innovation Fund Denmark and the Technical University of Denmark, in the efforts to develop a biodegradable, biobased bottle made from sustainably sourced wood-fiber. Named the “Green Fiber Bottle”, the materials will be developed using biodegradable materials, allowing the bottle to degrade in a socially responsible manner.

Needless to say, Kilo are proud to be design partners on this forward-thinking project that aims to set new standards for CSR-driven product design.

A Closer Look at the TMA-2 Modular Packaging System Designed by Kilo and AIAIAI

The launch of the Kilo-designed TMA-2 Modular, AIAIAI’s headphone system that allows users to build their own, unique headphones based on a wide range of sound, design and comfort options, necessitated a new kind of structural packaging system for the various, interchangeable TMA-2 speaker units, headbands, cables and earpads. AIAIAI needed a solution that could simultaneously service the stock keeping management, and pick & pack solutions for warehouses and webshop, while providing an interesting unboxing experience, as well as a striking in-store presence at discerning retailers like Colette in Paris.

Haxi Kick Off Testing Phase for the HaxiStar Explorer – A New Transport-sharing Device Designed By Kilo

In the beginning…there was the Taxicab. An early 1900s automobile that drove around top-hatted gentlemen and got its name from the clockwork taximeter, which measured its fare. Fast forward a good hundred years or so, and we’re at the internet. After which the smartphone made an appearance. And in 2016, it’s finally time for the HaxiStar Explorer, an experimental, Kilo-designed lighting device that transport-sharing Haxi users can place on the hood of their car in the efforts to find one another in the bustling concrete jungle. If the above version of events seems somewhat subjective and jumbled up, we can assure you that this selective account of transportation history is, in fact, written to illustrate a point: That the internet-based sharing economy, and thus our partners at Haxi, are very likely the future of urban transportation.

Kilo Designs Bend: A Versatile, New LED Lamp

Designed for new, Danish brand WATT A LAMP, Bend is a bendy hybrid between a static, symmetric table lamp and a flexible work lamp, resulting in a product that combines the long-lived tradition of interior lighting with the uncompromisingly functionalist character of classic, industrial desk lamps. The cast base supports a centred gooseneck tube, allowing the head to bend freely in all directions, while an integrated grip at the top of the lampshade prompts intuitive aiming of the light. The surface touch function at the base turns the lamp on and off and dims the light. BEND combines design-historical references with the use of modern LED technology in a contemporary, convenient and versatile light source fit for home, office and hotel settings.
