Iqua unveils world's first solar-powered Bluetooth headset

Iqua BHS-603 SUN

Iqua Ltd. unveils the world's first solar-powered Bluetooth headset today at 3GSM in Barcelona. The new Iqua BHS-603 SUN can be charged with integrated solar cells. The solution is joint-developed with Suntrica Ltd.

The solar-powered Iqua BHS-603 SUN is a stylish headset weighing only 14 grams. The headset is developed based on Iqua's Bluetooth headset BHS-603 Vogue, which was one of the best-selling headsets in late 2006 - also in the demanding French market.

"Imagine sailing with friends - most of them have mobile phones, digital cameras, MP3 players and laptops on the boat. When there is an opportunity to charge the batteries, everyone rushes to get their device plugged. With the new elegant Iqua headset, you can just relax, sunbathe and let its battery charge. With the BHS-603 SUN, you not only look stylish, but save energy at the same time," says Iqua's CEO Juha Reima.

The BHS-603 SUN gives you total freedom. You can charge the headset anywhere it catches direct sunlight, and you will have unlimited operating time when the BHS-603 SUN is on your car's dashboard, on your desk by the window or anywhere where the solar cells of the headset can catch sunlight.


Gallery Exhibition

Le Sable will consist of approximately 40 pieces that are emblematic of Arnold's most recent body of work. His current pursuits have him exploring landscapes in abstraction with natural materials and traditional media. Among other things, he would like for you - when you come see the show - to think about: the blending of natural elements with surreal plateaus and ethereal atmospheres, or majestic sunsets and cool coastal mornings. Together we are extremely excited about this body of work and look forward to spending an evening with you at the opening reception Friday April 6th.

...and beyond is an amsterdam based fashion initiative.

Their focus lies in creating images, worlds around- and about fashion.

Conceptual and applied work exists next to eachother,

they are always looking for meaningfull ways to cross disciplines and styles.

text about the scarf design:

the scarf is part of the collection:

'something here feels horribly wrong'

This collection is inspired by the 17th century still-life paintings, wich showcase beauty, richness and prestige but reveal decay when you look closely, it seeks how to show the subtle, uneasy details of modern life. On the surface, people are striving for succes, wealth and happiness, but underneath, fear is taking over. This feeling of threat is woven into this collection as subtly as the rotten fruit and insects are painted into 17th-century fruit bowls.

The scarfdesign is based on the known PLO scarf, the design reflects on the conflicting connotations of this piece of clothing, used as a religious, terrorist, subculture or fashion icon.

The pixel prints are downloadable images from Nokia and show a sign of the present time.

Must see exhibitions in Paris, spring 2007 by Suvi-Elina

If you are in Paris this spring there are at least two exhibitions you should visit. The first one is David Lynch- The air is on fire and second one Jean-Paul Gaultier-La Defile, opened  last week in Musee de la Mode et du Textile.

The Foundation Cartier pour l'art contemporain presents The air is on fire, an exhibition devoted to the multifaced visual art creations of David Lynch. This event marks the first time that the filmmaker has made a large number of paintings, photographs, drawings, alternative films and sound productions reconstruct his childhood experience , his adolsecent, fantasies and his adult preoccupations. Lynch's sense of humor is also present in the difficult issues his paintings tackle.  The exhibition is about David Lynch's "behind the scenes" artistic expression and it's first time available for public.

Jean-Paul Gaultier designed the costumes of some 18 ballets choreographed by Régine Chopinot from 1983 to 1994. To celebrate the couturier’s thirty years of creation in 2007 and the costumes’ transfer from the Centre Choréographique de La Rochelle to the Musée de la Mode et du Textile, this exhibition will retrace the history of this assiduous collaboration between couturier and choreographer for the first time. Examples of Jean-Paul Gaultier’s haute couture will also be shown.
