Carl Pei’s new company, Nothing, has shared the design of its first product, which are true wireless headphones. The company calls it Concept 1. Nothing has shared a render showing the kind of design features the company will be using in its upcoming true wireless earbuds. The device was designed by Tom Howard, the company’s design director who also serves as assistant design director for Teenage Engineering.
In a blog post, Nothing revealed its Concept 1. However, The Verge reports that Concept 1 is not something that Nothing actually wants to publish and sell. We don’t even know if it’s a physical device. “While the same design principles will be followed and there will be similarities to Concept 1, the end product will look different,” a Nothing spokesperson said in an email to the publication.
Nothing describes the design of his Concept 1 based on three elements that determine his design philosophy: weightlessness, effortlessness and timelessness. “These are the principles that have determined our product design over the past few months. We look forward to showing you how our first products this summer bring this to life, ”wrote Nothing on his blog post.
It’s a bunch of jargon with no real product presentation right now. Nothing is going to launch anything this summer, but we don’t know exactly what it would be. The company has only described its design philosophy in detail today. For example, the design of Concept 1 is similar to “a grandmother’s tobacco pipe”. We don’t know exactly what it means.
There’s no specific information yet on what the Nothing brand plans to bring to market for consumers – it could be a pair of TWS headphones. According to previous speculation, the brand could launch a line of wireless earbuds with a broader focus on smart home technology.
