Apply a brand to a product. Design headphones that comply with a brand's goals and values
Here we researched the company's history, values, mission statement, goals, strengths, design language, and customer base to build a better understanding of how Ikea would make a pair of over-ear headphones.
We sketched on brown paper to explore possibilities for a pair of Ikea headphones, keeping the existing design language and target market in mind.
This is our interpretation of Ikea headphones: honest, humble, practical.
A pair of Bluetooth headphones with simple black or white colour options, each with a cork accent. The headphones would be adjustable to ensure that everyone can get a comfortable fit. The right earpiece has discreet volume control and pause/play buttons. The power and Bluetooth buttons can be found on the left earpiece as well as the USB-C charging cable.
