Since 2015, I've been the lead designer, and one of the founders of Genki Instruments, a design driven technology company that strives to make technology feel natural. Genki's first product; Wave, is a ring that allows musicians to shape and control sound with motion. Musicians are a diverse group and Wave is designed so that it can be configured to fit different needs and environments. Whether on stage or in the studio.
Since then we have released multiple products and are still trying out new alternatives to what we are used to when controlling the technology around us.
Please check out www.genkiinstruments.com for information about all the products we have created.
In 2019 we received the honor of being granted the Icelandic Design Awards for our work at Genki.
The following pictures are from the early stages of the design phase when I was still trying to figure out what it was we were creating.
