Native Union Launches Handmade Terrazzo iPhone Cases & Chargers

Published

on

Premium tech accessories maker Native Union today releases its latest capsule, the Terrazzo Collection, which comprises iPhone cases and chargers. The drop pulls inspiration from the speckled terrazzo material usually seen in flooring and interior design.

“Taking inspiration from industries such as home interiors and architecture has been at the root of Native Union’s design over the years. We wanted to give the traditional terrazzo a contemporary twist when applying it to modern tech while still keeping the inspiration recognizable,” says Native Union head of design Fabien Nauroy. “The result is a sophisticated but striking collection of accessories that you won’t want to hide away.”

The accessories have been handcrafted using Jesmonite, which creates a distinguished mineral pattern marble effect that mimics a terrazzo finish. Items such as the CLIC Terrazzo iPhone case for iPhone Xs and Xs Max ($60) and the Dock Wireless Charger ($150), available in black and rose, use the material to beautiful effect.

PUMA Unveils Game-Changing Fit Intelligence Technology

Published

on

PUMA today announced its latest footwear technology. Dubbed Fit Intelligence (Fi), it is the successor to AutoDisc, which launched just two years prior.

According to the German sportswear giant Fi “is designed to automate, fine tune, and adjust performance fit for PUMA footwear.”

With Nike building on its auto-lacing technology with the Adapt BB and adidas forging ahead with its accelerated footwear production at its SPEEDFACTORY locations, PUMA looks to bring its own, game-changing technology to market.

The first Fi footwear to launch is a running shoe that employs a micromotor that powers a cable lacing system. Simply gesturing up or down on the forefoot Fi module tightens or loosens the lacing system. Additionally, it comes with a smart sensing capability that adapts to the shape of the foot of each wearer.

Using an app, sneakerheads can monitor, adjust, and fine tune their Fi-equipped footwear.

“We have created a product that speaks to the future of sport which is life in motion. It’s fast and changing all the time,” said Charles Johnson, PUMA’s Global Director of Innovation.

Fi is the latest step in PUMA’s continued attempt to push the boundaries of performance and lifestyle product. In 1968 PUMA debuted the first laceless sports shoe with Velcro™ straps and followed that up in 1991 with the first cable closure, seen on the PUMA Disc.
