Connect

Home Harmony

Connectivity Concept is an eclectic family of six connected products in collaboration with Deutsche Telekom Design. The collection is the most recent in a series of projects from LAYER that challenge the conventional design language and materiality of technology to define a new vision for unobtrusive smart devices in the home.

The collection comprises six products – a router, mesh repeater, set-top box/soundbar with webcam, set-top box, and remote. Each device features gentle geometric forms, discreet interfaces, and is crafted from tactile materials that take inspiration from residential interior design.
