Sir Jonathan Ive designed a special edition of the Leica M
While the functionality and performance are two important factors in addressing the development of a device, the design also is another key aspect since also meet aesthetic canons, devices must be comfortable and manageable (although sometimes involving occasional clash with the engineering team of a product). One of the key figures in the field of Industrial Design today is, without doubt, Sir Jonathan Ive , Vice President of Industrial Design at Apple, and responsible for the design of products such as the iMac, MacBook Pro, iPod, or iPad the iPhone, an award-winning designer who, in addition to his work at Apple, you are making a collaboration with one of the world’s legendary companies Photo: Leica .
Indeed, Sir Jonathan Ive with Leica collaborate on the design of a special edition of the Leica M camera, news that will please fans of the world of photography and became known last night during a special event in which the owner of the firm German, Dr. Andreas Kaufmann, made the announcement after introducing the world to the camera Leika ME .
Unfortunately for those who are thinking of saving some money to bought this camera, Leica plans to develop only spend one unit of this special edition, making it one of the more limited limited editions that can be done. For now, the plans are basically that, because plans have not yet been discussed many details and has not even started with the project.
What I do know is that this particular model will be auctioned and the proceeds will go to charity (and when you consider that the standard model is around $ 7000, this special edition can shoot any price imaginable) and Bono , the lead singer of U2, will be in charge of presenting this auction (which is expected to attend more affluent pockets to bid for this unique object).
Glancing at work Ive, and his award-winning career, I’m sure this partnership will go a product that will not leave anyone indifferent.Tags: Apple, Industrial Design, Jonathan Ive, Leica
