The design concept delivers a full spectrum of sounds while aesthetically it reinterprets the line of the sleeve of the traditional “Han-bok” and “Beo-seon” Korean clothes in a contemporary style.
After several technical tests with different materials, HI-MACS® was demonstrated to be the optimum choice for the speaker cabinet. This was due to its non-porous features and to the minimal vibrations that the material generates in contact with the speakers. Therefore HI-MACS® helps to drive the vibration of the speaker enclosure and it allows minimal diffraction of sound, with a curved design that generates the purest result from the music. The thermoforming properties of HI-MACS® were essential to create the extraordinary, smooth curved shape of 魂Horn.
魂Horn is made especially for IPod devices, and delivers the full spectrum of sounds. The acoustic material and sweeping curves serve up a stunningly clear, precise listening experience that today’s audiophiles are looking for.
HI-MACS® gets the most out of your music!

"Design + Culture - A Return to Fundamentalism?" is the new in-depth trend report from David Report.
that has become a means to capture ideation, innovation and enterprise and made to
stand for cultural identity. Whilst the application of design is multiplying exponentially, it is
loosing its vailidity as a cultural icon. We need to reclaim a more long lasting cultural
integrity and return to a type of cultural fundamentalism.
–A return to cultural fundamentalism is essential if we are to reengage our tribal past and
work toward a a collective local global future. The measure of a civilisation is the strength
of its culture. The desire to reclaim a more long lasting cultural integrity is to create
memorable experiences, and emotionally rewarding objects, says Brent Richards, cowriter
of the new report.
–The new report is no two in a trilogy which started with ‘Time to Rethink Design’. This
time we are looking deeper into the relation between design and culture, which is not
always as healthy as one would like, says David Carlson, founder of David Report and cowriter
of the new report.

Colebrook Bosson Saunders is proud to announce that their latest product "Flo" is the recipient of a red dot award for product design. The red dot design award dates back to 1955 and is now the world’s largest and most distinguished design competition. It breaks down into the three disciplines ‘red dot award: product design’, ‘red dot award: communication design’ and ‘red dot award: design concept’. There were almost 14,000 entries from 68 countries in the year 2010 alone. This year, designers and companies from 60 countries entered 4,433 products in the red dot award: product design.
Flo is a self-powered dynamic monitor arm that allows a flat screen to be used in either an upright viewing position, at desktop level as a touch screen, or anywhere in between. Flo stands out from its competitors because it addresses three major needs of end-users and specifiers: free flowing action with smooth adjustability; a unique visual indicator weight gauge; compatibility with touch-screen technology and in addition, as one would expect from a Colebrook Bosson Saunders’ product, purity of design. It is the second prestigious red dot award Colebrook Bosson Saunders has won; the first time was for the "Rodney" monitor arm in 2009.
Professor Dr. Peter Zec, the initiator of the red dot design award, comments: "As always, our jury cast a very careful eye over the products submitted. Design quality has asserted itself clearly in the judging process, with genuine and new creative solutions also being rewarded. Both of these criteria are not just yardsticks for good design, but also for the potential for success on the market. This potential is increased several times over by the targeted use of our renowned design award. "
Flo will be exhibited in the red dot design museum together with the other prize-winning products, from 5 July to 1 August 2011 in the exhibition "Design on stage – winners red dot award: product design 2011" in the red dot design museum at the world heritage site of the Zeche Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex in Essen. With in excess of 1,500 products spread over an area of more than 4,000 m2, the red dot design museum houses the largest permanent exhibition of contemporary design worldwide.

Icons of Denmark is pleased to introduce the new Montana Wardrobe to the UK - a flexible modular system which allows you to express your own style. Montana Wardrobe is a completely new concept that breaks with the traditional idea of a wardrobe as a closet or a space for storing clothes and shoes.
The philosophy behind Montana Wardrobe is that a wardrobe shouldn't just occupy an entire wall; it should give you the freedom to arrange your home in your own personal manner, maintaining the depth and height of the room and giving it character. Castors can be put under the units to create a mobile wardrobe; it can be placed on a plinth or legs, or hung on the wall to create more lightness and depth.
Montana Wardrobe is a well-considered design consisting of five units that can be combined and built together according to desires and needs. Various components with exquisite details can be added to help keep order and harmony throughout. And Montana's extensive colour palette allows you to express your personal style.
Montana Wardrobe's flexible concept is built on Montana's extensive experience of creating a synthesis of forms, styles and functionality, and can be used with Montana's other products.
