Meet the Muse 2 Meditational Headband!

Muse2 meditational headband

Muse2

We are so proud to finally introduce you the second generation of the Muse Meditational Headband! Our designers worked hard to give the new device a sleeker, lower profile that makes meditation smoother and more comfortable than ever before. By designing the device our aim was to give the product an organic, natural look and using high-quality materials to provide maximal comfort for meditation. A true wow experience.

The headband is a perfect tool for those who practice meditation regularly, but still requires some help to focus or simply would like to track their progress. The soft, lightweight headband has multiple sensors that monitor your mental activity, heart rate and breathing.

While you meditate, it transfers the data to the application that gives you real time feedback in the form of weather sounds. This means that when you’re having noisy thoughts, you will hear city buzz or storm roar and when you reach a calm state of mind, little birds are going the chirp in your ears. Besides, you can keep collecting scores in the app to follow your performance.

Will you give it a try? If yes, let us know what you think.

Summer of 2018 – California Dreaming

Spaces in Menlo Park, Silicon Valley.

Spaces in Menlo Park, Silicon Valley.

'Welcome home. Oops, we meant welcome to work!' Oh boy. After a great summer holiday, we are back at the computers. This picture above is from Eskild's latest visit to the Silicon Valley. Because we love fresh ideas, creativity and true entrepreneurship, we obviously love working with startups from the area. After spending some time at places like the Menlo Park or the Soho House in Malibu, we have some pretty interesting projects coming up.

As for our Team in Denmark, we've just welcomed our 3 new Product Design Interns for the Autumn semester. From France to Guatemala, they are all super talented and eager to grow in our Copenhagen Studio for the next couple of months.

Falling leaves and busy days, here we come!

Getting back to work

Eskild Hansen Design Team - Getting back to work after the summer vacation

Summer Ending Boat Party

You all know the joke that ''the Danish summer is the best day of the year'', right? Well, we take holidays just as seriously as we take pride in our design work. That is why after our well-deserved summer vacation, spending some time by the beach and relax our minds, we are back at the office with full-speed. We're ready to create, improve, and kick off new projects for the rest of the year. See you out there!

Annual Summer BBQ ’17

Eskild Hansen Annual Summer BBQ and Team Building

Our Annual Summer BBQ '17

Great people create great things. We know the importance of a good team spirit and happy co-workers, and truly, we have so much to celebrate from the year that is behind us. That all led to a wonderful evening of grilling and chilling together with family and friends in our backyard garden. Skål!

Designer Baristas

Not only did we just get a new espresso machine for Christmas, but also we learned top barista techniques from one of the best. Troels Poulsen, a former word champion barista, held a workshop in the studio and oh how we love all the details of latte art and the nuance of coffee’s flavor profile. You can count on an excellent cup of coffee when you stop in for a visit.

Changing skin

Goodbye, old studio. We loved you, but outgrew you. Thank you for the good times and shelter. It’s time to look ahead to a new, bigger, brighter space. We can’t wait for you to see it.  7 TIMES MORE SPACE....

Fast Company

This year the leaders of the American design industry get together at Fast Company’s Innovation Festival, and we were in on the action this year. We dig Tony Fidels’s ability to create great IOT companies. But more than anything he is a great example of a tech leader who understands the importance of great customer experience. “People want to understand what those things are and, how they are applicable to their life.” We couldn’t agree more.

We bet you’ve never have seen anything like this. This is God Goes Deep. On selected Friday nights the Cathedral of Copenhagen opens it’s doors to the public and invites them to experience a unique spiritual experience led by some of the world’s best deejays.

Get a taste of the music here

As a part of the establishment, Eskild Hansen Design studios projects visual art at the church ceiling. It is our way of stretching our artistic muscles. Come by if you are in town.

Radical Russia

We were in Italy on business. So why not stop by the biennale in Venice?

As designers we need to make things that are not just beautiful, but also functional. Great artists make art that is not just beautiful, but which also pushes our perspectives.

This picture is from the Russian pavilion. This Russian artist, Irina Nakhova has an attitude and courage that is inspiring. There is an interesting movement in young Russian art that is radical and that has a lot more to offer than beauty. We love you Irina!

Two generations of Hansen at Salone Del Mobile

Eskild shares: “The Milan Furniture Fair, Salone Del Mobile, is the most important industrial design event in Europe, so I haven’t missed it for 20 years. This year I will go with my mom, who also is a designer and one of my greatest sources of inspiration. Let us know if you are around.”
