According to the latest news, Swedish electronics house Teenage Engineering which is best known for its range of beautifully designed audio devices is working with Carl Pei’s Nothing for its upcoming product releases. Nothing, the new consumer tech brand says that Teenage Engineering is one of Nothing’s founding partners and will drive the design aesthetic of the new company.
Carl Pei said that he has already worked with Teenage Engineering to create a product roadmap “that’s unique and true to Nothing’s vision.” Nothing will be releasing its first product this summer. Its first product is going to be a pair of wireless earbuds.
Nothing said that Teenage Engineering’s co-founder and CEO Jesper Kouthoofd will serve as creative lead and “visionary behind Nothing’s design world,” while Tom Howard, Teenage Engineering’s vice head of design will be Nothing’s head of design. Kouthoofd said, “After months of research and development, we are now in a place where I believe we will have something exciting to show to the world.”
It will be interesting to see what design cues Nothing takes from Teenage Engineering’s M-1 headphones.
