Panasonic explore the intersection between home, wellbeing and technology with the launch of ‘Balance of Being’: a collection of intuitive product concepts bringing to life a new philosophy. The collection of six near-future design concepts sensitively combine emerging technology with sophisticated experience design and explore how we can have more meaningful engagements with products in how we take care of ourselves. The collection is the collaborative result of a research and development project between Panasonic Design and Panasonic’s engineering teams.
Panasonic has approached the collection with a focus on changing behaviours and exploring materiality. The designs take cues from premium homewares, lifestyle and wellness products. Materials including glazed ceramic, refined timber and constructed textiles have been used in a pale tonal palette, allowing these tech products to feel natural in the home. The collection is further unified by a consistent set of design details and features.
