Presented in partnership with Whitewall, the panel featured a selection of special guests to discuss culture and technology in the art, fashion, design, and tech worlds, including La Mar C. Taylor, the CCO and Co-Founder of XO/ HXOUSE; the tattoo artist Dr. Woo; Chris Stamp, the Founder and fashion designer of Stampd; and Akis Evangelidis, the Co-founder of Nothing Technology.
“With Nothing, we wanted to bring an extra layer to design. We wanted to go beyond purely functional design. It is our mission to bring self-expression and emotions back into consumer technology. We’re always trying to blend the worlds of fashion and tech,” said Evangelidis.
To a packed house of art, design, fashion, and tech patrons, the leaders discussed the challenges of bringing Nothing’s mission to life—bringing the excitement back to tech by utilizing innovative, sleek, and practical design.
In addition to the discussion, guests got a firsthand look at Nothing’s new design-forward Ear (stick) wireless earbuds, which exemplified the event’s topic. Equipped with 29 hours of playtime, a footlong custom driver, and a comfortable half-in ear design, the product delivers powerful sound with a lightweight feel, demonstrating the value of functional and imaginative design.
