Balance of Being

LAYER is delighted to have supported Panasonic in the creation of concepts presented at IFA 2019. The teams have explored the intersection between home, wellbeing and technology with the launch of ‘Balance of being’: a collection of new 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 and how we take care of ourselves. The collection is the collaborative result of a research and development project between LAYER, Panasonic’s design and engineering teams.

Tone is a fashion-led product that sits comfortably around a person’s neck; improving the complexion and health of their skin and décolletage using steam and LED light treatments. TONE examines the user’s neck complexion and devises a self-care regime for an optimal and personalised experience.
