TWO IN ONE

iF concept design award

iF concept design award

It’s annoying that the wires on your earphones always get tangled when you put them down anywhere. Wouldn’t it be good if you could somehow join the two wires to make one? The idea for this design was inspired by sealable “ziplock” food bags. If you want to set the earphones aside, all you have to do is to pinch the wires and slide your fingers upwards to join the two wires together. Sometimes such a tiny change can lead to considerably more convenience.

<p> We appreciate IF very much, for giving us the opportunity to prove ourselves.&nbsp;<br /> Being one of the best 100 is a real honor and an unbelievable motivation boost for us. In the future, we will continue to forge ahead along the path of design innovation.</p>
