Small gadgets with big impact…

That design and technology are very closely linked is no secret anymore. A gadget that compels through its design but falls short on the technological side will likely not achieve lasting commercial success. The reverse will yield the same results: a technical innovation without an appealing presentation will not make it onto our favourites list. We would, however, like to show you 6 of our favourite products that have successfully united technology and design.

1 Samsung Serif 4K Ultra HD LED Smart TV

The Samsung Serif 4K Ultra HD LED Smart TV is a dream come true for all design fans who prefer a minimalist aesthetic in their homes. The freestanding screen acts almost like a piece of furniture – a sleek and extremely practical piece of furniture at that. Looking past its timeless design, another important selling point of this Smart TV is its simple, user-friendly interface. We’re already excited to put it to use at our next movie night.

2 Nespresso Pixie Espresso Maker

The Nespresso Pixie Espresso Maker starts the day off right with its innovative functions and quality design. This compact, single-cup machine needs only 25 seconds to boil water, saving valuable time on those hectic mornings, but not at the expense of quality. As if we weren’t already sold on this little espresso maker, Nespresso sealed the deal for us with its exceptional design. A must have for all coffee lovers who want both that last snooze and their morning cup o’ joe.

Following Apple, Samsung and co., Huawei now has a true curve design on the market, too. The Porsche Design Huawei Mate 9 has a practical format, designed to fit the natural shape of the hand. The Leica Summarit dual-lens technology guarantees razor-sharp images, and, thanks to Hybrid Zoom, you’ll be able to focus on even the smallest details– even retroactively! This stylish smartphone can do it all and makes for the perfect business companion.

4 HOLY TRINITY hanging light KALA

The puristic hanging light KALA combines dynamic and design in a groundbreaking new way. Due to an almost invisible mounting fixture, KALA seems to float weightless in the room, allowing the lamp to function as a subtle accent. The lamp’s innovative interface is made up of 4 rings, which the user can slide across the light bar to achieve the desired lighting scenario. We love our KALA and we’re sure you will too!
