Inspired by the forces of nature and the sculptural beauty of the body, Nokia today unveiled its latest premium mobile phone, the Nokia 8800 Sirocco Edition.
Sensual by nature, intuitively beautiful by design, the Sirocco Edition’s signature feature is a thumbprint, which perfectly matches the human hand.
The soundtrack of the Nokia 8800 Sirocco Edition was composed by the avant-garde musical pioneer Brian Eno, considered the “father of ambient music.”
The Nokia 8800 Sirocco Edition draws its name from the powerful desert-born wind that originates in the Sahara when a warm, dry air mass collides with the cooler, maritime air of the Mediterranean.
The striking organic shape of the Nokia 8800 Sirocco Edition references the inherent strength of the human form, a concept further implied by stainless steel polished surfaces and a scratch-resistant glass display window.
Like its namesake, the Nokia 8800 Sirocco Edition consists of two variants – light and dark, the light inspired by the hot, dry air mass, the dark by the cooler, humid one.
And as it blows, the powerful sirocco makes its own unique sound – a composition from nature caused by two air masses colliding. With nature as his inspiration, Brian Eno, the world renowned music composer and ambient music innovator, has created a unique ‘sonic texture’ that is organic, calm and highly evolved.
It has an otherworldly feel – comprised of notes created by instruments that Eno has selected and ‘synthesized’ himself.
The stainless steel case of the Sirocco Edition is treated in such a way as to give the device a unique sensual feel, which humanizes this natural masterpiece.
Impeccable functionality is created through superlative craftsmanship, using techniques drawn from master watchmakers and jewelers.
From the sapphire coating of the 262,000 color display to the distinctive slide mechanism which reveals its 2 mega-pixel camera, or even its extended battery life, every seemingly minor detail of the Nokia 8800 Sirocco Edition is honed to perfection.
The ergonomic keypad undulates like the glimmering dunes of the night desert, whilst the jewel-like navigation key shines like the brightest star in the darkest night.
The Nokia 8800 Sirocco Edition truly is unique, created out of the inherent beauty and chaos of nature and distilled into a modern form that is graceful, sympathetic and spare.
