Belkin at CES- 01.11.07
I must admit, it feels great to wake up and not be in vegas, it just isn’t my kind of city… also i had dreams/nightmares of gadgets and the madness that was the last few days all night… and STILL couldn’t decide where to start with sharing CES with you. So from a designer standpoint, we are going to go in order of what is MOST memorable to me.
BELKIN BOOTH. If i had to pick one standout booth, they are it. This one was fit to be at the Salone even… gorgeous concept and execution… from the bird/tree black and white motifs for wallpaper, to all the leaf silhouettes for the labels/stickers/etc. and notice the style of their minimalist furniture. If anyone had a great feel for design trends now, this was it. They even had a seriously tastefully pimped out convertible silver mini, and a tool themed display for the ipod accessories. Room by room, even while packed with hundreds, this was the booth i felt most at home at. They even had various “lifestyles” being demonstrated by the man and women in the window… Below is my little tour of the belkin booth.
