VIA57™ – Republic of Fritz Hansen, Bjarke Ingels and KiBiSi launch the VIA57™ chair.
The ultimate partnership in Danish design: Republic of Fritz Hansen, the Danish architect Bjarke Ingels and the Danish design group KiBiSi, now launches the VIA57™ chair. The partnership is the culmination of great Danish design visions coming together with the VIA57 chair’s dynamic, tetrahedral shape translated through the lens of the heritage furniture brand. Debuting in New York on 13 May 2016, the collaboration celebrates the completion of Bjarke Ingels Group’s first New York City project — the VIA57 WEST building — giving design lovers around the world the opportunity to have a piece of the Manhattan skyline in their own homes.
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.Read More

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. In addition to the custom mint cable, the Robin phone has been tuned specifically to work with the special edition of the Kilo designed TMA-2 Modular headphones.
Nextbit has created the only cloud-first, design-forward smartphone for anyone who wants to be freed from the limits of today’s mobile technology. Located in San Francisco and led by mobile industry veterans, Nextbit design is guided by attributes that are minimal, playful and colorful leading to highly original smartphones that stand out from the competition.

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.
