Zon Hearing Aid

Winner - Bronze

Competition: Spark:Pro
Designer: Stuart Karten & Design Team
Design Type: Product, Health
Company / Organization / School: Stuart Karten Design

Designed to provide unparalleled speech intelligibility in any environment, the Z?n shifts the perception of a hearing aid from a medical instrument to an object that communicates its true value. Modeled with taut, precise surfaces and tailored with a level of detail befitting a product of a much larger scale, the 1.3-inch-long Z?n possesses a faceted, jewel-like quality that is attractive in the hand. When placed behind the ear, Z?n becomes virtually invisible with a palette of six understated colors that complement the wearer’s hair and skin tones and a compact, comfortable from that embraces the body’s geometry.
