Kilo and AiAiAi wins golden lion in Cannes
Our TMA-2 modular project in collaboration with AIAIAI has been awarded a Cannes Lions golden trophy. Cannes Lions is the world’s biggest annual award show and festival for professionals celebrating creativity. Kilo founder Lars Larsen premiered as Cannes Lions Jury member in 2014 when the product design category was introduced. By receiving this prestigious award we add on to our Cannes Lions history and thank the Jury for honoring our work and way of thinking.
Kilo Founder Lars Larsen is elected member of The Danish Design Council
The Danish Design Council is an independent organization that betters the state of Danish design by facilitating connections between design and society, by initiating debate and by awarding a design prize. In addition to this, the Design Council acts as advisor on design to Danish Society as a whole and appoints board members of the Danish Design Center.
KiBiSi Designs Facette watch for Bulbul
The round and refined Facette watch is the second design in the Bulbul collection. Facette incorporates distinct design details while paying homage to an iconic watch shape. The markers floats almost unnoticeably on the underside of the sapphire crystal. The Italian leather strap connects exactly in the middle of the steel casing, creating an unusually stylish fit. Inside Facette lies a Swiss Made, 14 K Gold Plated Ronda movement, with up to ten years battery life. Conceived in the creative minds of Danish design trinity KiBiSi – Facette is subtle design on precision engineering.
Kilo teams up with Elektron as new design partners
We are proud to announce that we have teamed up with Swedish pro music machine makers Elektron. Pioneers in digital sound and now pioneering in transforming analog sound to digital introducing Overbridge. For the first time in history, seamless computer integration of analog synthesizers and drum machines is a reality. We are now part of the team working for continuously improving and expanding the Elektron portfolio in a beautiful marriage between digital and analog worlds.
Kilo and Neumeister design new Bus stops for Skånetrafiken
In collaboration with creators of the brand Identity for Skånetrafiken, Swedish agency Neumeister, Kilo has designed a series of new bus stops. First model is now installed in Malmö, a 10-square meter module part of a system of eight different sized shelters. Each has been designed to be welcoming, safe, easy to maintain – and with a sedum covered roof – beneficial to the environment, too. After an evaluation period, the plan is to install 30 to 40 new shelters each year at bus stops throughout Skåne.
BIG’s Danish Maritime Museum is a Mies Van Der Rohe Finalist and we are proud to be part of the design team.
In collaboration with BIG, KiBiSi designed the bench system preventing cars from driving into the dock, while creating a social hangout for the museum visitors. The bench system is inspired by bollards found on the harbor front and the basic Morse code system of dash and dots used for years in communication at sea. If you haven’t already visited the Danish Maritime Museum – go there and crack the bench code. A copy of BIG’s Hot to Cold monograph published by Taschen is at stake if you send us your response by May 8th: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Louis Poulsen Silverback family expands
The KiBiSi designed Silverback for wall and ceiling is now available in a LED pendant version. Instead of floating near the wall or ceiling, the new Silverback model floats in free space. The soft, diffuse light distribution provides a high level of lighting comfort, combined with low energy use and good colour reproduction. These are essential for improving well-being and the environment in all corners of a building, while providing minimalist, uniform and low-maintenance lighting. Silverback seemingly melts into the setting. Silverback negotiates its environment by emitting light from its reflective rear side – a shining halo illuminates the wall and draws the background into the fixture.
Kilo designs TMA-2 Modular in collaboration with AIAIAI
The original TMA-1 was designed by Kilo in 2009. Now, evolution turns the TMA-1 DJ and family members TMA-1 Studio & TMA-1 X into TMA-2 Modular. Providing a vast range of interchangeable options across sound, function, comfort and design, TMA-2 Modular is a state-of-the-art system that lets you create your own personalised headphone – while enabling a quick and easy change of individual parts along the way.
Kilo Founder Lars Larsen Interviewed by aiaiai
As you may have heard, we’ve just launched TMA-2 Modular, a headphone system comprised of modular audio components that lets you build your own, unique headphone according to your needs, preferences and personal whims. ‘How did the whole thing come about?’ – some of you might feel inclined to ask. The short answer is that the entire modular concept, from burgeoning idea to final, interchangeable product, is the outcome of an ongoing creative collaboration with our longstanding design partners at Kilo design. However, taking the short and easy way out runs counter to our Scandinavian fastidiousness, which is why a thorough and lengthy answer will now be painstakingly mapped out. In the efforts to help us give you the full and unrestrained low-down on the TMA-2 Modular development process, our Content Editor, Ulrik Nørgaard, sat down with our buddy and partner, Lars Larsen, founder/Head of Design at Kilo, as well as AIAIAI co-founder Frederik Jørgensen and picked their brain until they could take no more of the relentless, design/business-focused probing.
