AIAIAI X NEXTBIT HEADPHONES

The AIAIAI X Nextbit TMA-2 configuration is built with a powerful, high-sensitivity neodymium speaker unit that delivers a vibrant and detailed sound representation with a prominent dynamic bass and crisp treble. The combination of a durable nylon headband and the comfortable over-ear PU leather earpads that provide high isolation, results in a high quality headphone with a wide soundstage and excellent comfort.

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.
