Plectrum is a research project for Plantronics company working on new Bluetooth earphones. The name “Plectrum”, meaning a guitar pick, resembles an organic form of a smooth shell, evoking the idea of listening to the sea sounds from a conch. The idea behind the earphones was exactly this: unifying a technological object with a decorative accessory, like an earring illuminating with a phone call. The earphones are composed of two elements: the exterior, which can be exchanged and personalized by color, finish, and texture, and the inferior, containing the hardware, made with a simple, opaque black material.
