BMW Group DesignworksUSA has recently designed a new high-end gaming headset for Thermaltake.
Following the successful design collaboration on the Level_10 chassis in 2009, Thermaltake commissioned the design consultancy with a design concept for a series of innovative accessories for pro gamers which should take up and extend the computer design story. The Level_10 M Mouse was the first gaming accessory to be launched in 2012. The Level_10 M Headset project marks the third collaboration.
The challenge was to translate the Level_10 design language into the headset design. In this way the gamer's Level_10 experience was to be extended to the physical world through a product that is being directly touched and interacted with during the game.
"The Level_10 M Headset successfully extends the Level_10 spirit and design quality to one of the core accessories for gamers," commented Sonja Schiefer, Director of the Munich Studio, BMW Group DesignworksUSA. "With the addition of the headset we have now created a consistent family of products with a unique, iconic, and exciting appeal, the perfect match for the emotional world of gaming."
