AVENTADOR EKŌ

Meaningful, Memorable, Likable
Designed to represent Lamborghini's automotive styling EKŌ is an advanced noise cancelling headphones. Designed for an extraordinary experience, they have a battery life of up to 30 hours of wireless playtime.  

MARKET RESEARCH

In order to understand the specialized headphones market, I researched and looked at existing headphones designed and engineered for various car companies including Lamborghini. 

MOOD BOARD

I created a mood board to get inspired by Lamborghini's automobile styling. While creating this mood board I looked at Aventador's exterior and interior. I wanted to create something which in the truest form represents what Lamborghini stands for 'Meaningful, Memorable, Likable'  

SKETCHES

As part of the ideation phase, I started by doing some observational studies of a Beats headphone as this helped me understand the basic form of the headphone. Following that, I did some close-up features of the Aventador to get an understanding of different I could incorporate in my design. I decided to use Aventador's rim as I  it worked well with the overall shape of the earpiece and is a design element that represents Aventador in the truest form.
