Nothing, founded by ex-co-founder OnePlus, Carl Pei, has announced a partnership with Stockholm-based teenage engineering, a company known for unique craftsmanship and industrial design prowess.
To reiterate, teenage engineering has been developing highly acclaimed products for people who love sound, music, and design. The company’s emblematic first product, the portable wonder synthesizer OP-1,
was launched in 2010 and is still used by world-famous musicians today.
Notably, Nothing will be releasing its first products in the coming months, which is expected to be headphones, according to various rumors.
The company recently announced that it is opening up for its community to invest as part of its Series A. So far, over 20,000 people have signed up for early access with a registered interest of close to $30 million in total. This community funding round will be carried out through a crowdfunding campaign starting on March 2nd.
Jesper Kouthoofd, co-founder & CEO of teenage engineering, is the Creative Lead and the visionary behind Nothing’s design world, while Tom Howard has been appointed as Head of Design of Nothing.
Carl Pei, CEO & co-founder of Nothing, said:
I’m really excited to welcome teenage engineering to the growing Nothing family. They consist of some of the best designers and creatives that I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Together, we’ve created a product roadmap that’s unique and true to Nothing’s vision.
Jesper Kouthoofd, Founding Partner & Creative Lead of Nothing, said:
When Carl first told me about Nothing’s vision I remember being super excited thinking about how this would be translated into the design identity of the products. After months of research and development, we are now in a place where I believe we will have something exciting to show to the world.
