Description

TIM THOM, the Thomson Group's famous in-house design agency, is celebrating its 25th anniversary by partnering with Designerbox to create an iconic Matali Crasset product: Osmoze. This luminous wireless speaker that looks like a basket is all about friendship and sharing. There’s nothing better than music to bring people together, while to gladden the heart and invite us to linger a while in the evening, a little light is just the ticket! Osmoze lets you stream the music of your choice from your smartphone via Bluetooth® or simply from a USB key, and to create your own atmospheric lighting after dark. Thanks to its built-in battery and handle, you can easily carry it out onto your terrace and enjoy the sunset to music. The remote control lets you change the colour of the lighting, adjust the sound, or switch from one track to another. This connected item does away with the aesthetic codes of the sector, far from a high-tech aesthetic or the image of a lantern. Osmoze is all about outdoor pleasures, taking a stroll or going on a picnic. Taking Osmoze with you means setting your music free, but in a very specific way: that of taking a basket with you to do something while being free to move around as you wish. The green colour of its handle provides a symbolic link with plantlife. So it’s a technological object, but one which matali crasset has transformed into an innovative object, practical and decorative with a feminine touch, at home both inside and out. Matali Crasset: “Instead of trying at all costs to represent a function by its form and respect the codes of each sector (for example, a radio, conveying sound, will never be designed like a toaster which conveys heat), I try to discover, within the imaginary world, its strength of use. When Designerbox invited me to design an accessible mobile electronic speaker, the idea and archetype of the basket came to me naturally.” With Osmoze, Designerbox celebrates the Tim Thom adventure, an unprecedented research cell that has left its mark on the history of design. Initially led by matali crasset under the artistic direction of Philippe Starck, this cell brought together a large number of young creative types within Thomson who have helped revolutionise the design realm in France and around the world with its “Dream Products”. The ZEO TV, the LALALA radio, the COO COO alarm clock or the Don'O radio cassette designed by matali crasset. ...creations which have become icons and now feature in the collections of major museums such as the Pompidou Centre or the MoMA in New York.
