AUG 2013 / KiBiSi designs Pebble watch for Bulbul

Pebble is the first KiBiSi designed watch for new Danish watch brand Bulbul.
Pebble is not symmetric, square or round as watches are. Pebble is organic like the human body and the pebbles found on Scandinavian beaches. Pebble combines organic shapes and fine Italian crafted leather with the industrial feel of the injection molded silicone loop defining an international hybrid of heritage and openness. Swiss movement and sapphire glass are high quality components designed to last with the design.

APR 2013 / In Milan: KiBiSi’s family for Muuto expands

Muuto’s Hang Around and Toss Around get a little ponderous cousin: Turn Around - a wooden hand held juicer. Turn Around brings back juicing to its tactile origin by the nordic hyper analogue design. The wooden one-type-only material is easily recyclable and hopefully sufficiently aesthetically sustainable to be kept and passed on. Turn Around launches at Salone del Mobile 2013, Hall 16 stand B35.
