Mr. Erbil

A membership of a gentleman’s club and a dandy lifestyle as the ultimate protest against war, strong islamic rules and the economical crises. In a way Mr. Erbil are the successors of the Effendi movement from the 1920s and 1930s. The result is something that might seen an cultivating materialism but is in fact something very positive, hopeful and liberating…

iPhone 6(S) and 6(S) Plus Design

Lately I see a lot of Apple bashing in the media. Ofcourse Apple products aren’t perfect and of course they are expensive. Besides that, they are pretty much the best and best designed IT related products I know…

One example in detail… A lot of people hate the lines on the back of the iPhone 6 models. At first I wasn’t a big fan either, but once I understood it’s function I found they awesome.

To begin with. The lignes have a function. They’re made out of a new composite metal material designed to be thin enough to let through the radio frequenties needed to make your phone calls possible. The way this technical issue is then used to make a design statement makes Apple Apple. Let me try to explain…

When you take a closer look to the glass on the front of the smart phone, you will see it makes a gentle curve towards the edge. In someway this is the predecessor of the curved Apple Watch glass. When looked at from the side, this curved glass looks like a thin line. And it’s this thin line – in some way also a reference to the iPhone 5s – that is being mirrored on the back of the phone by the antenna lines. This effect is at it’s best in the gold – white combination. Design genius!
