Jony Ive: companies that copy Apple’s style are stealing

When Jony Ive sees designs from other companies that closely mimic Apple’s, he isn’t flattered. Apple’s head of design told the audience at the Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit today that copying makes him angry. In response to a question about Xiaomi’s highly Apple-like designs, Ive said his feelings were “a bit harsh.” “I don’t see it as flattery,” he says, noting that he was speaking about the issue generally and not about Xiaomi specifically. “I actually see it as theft.” Xiaomi, for its part, has denied being an Apple copycat. But the perception has stuck.

How Much Would You Pay For Gold Headphones Designed By Jony Ive?

What would you pay for a one-of-a-kind item designed by Jony Ive?

Folks who hung out at Sotheby’s design-centric auction this weekend, with around 50 items curated and designed (in some cases) by world-renowned designers Jony Ive and Marc Newson, spent upwards of $ 12 million.

The auction was part of Bono’s Project (Red), and proceeds will go to the Global Fund to fight Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

But which items did better than expected?

Not surprisingly, the technology-related items went for more than expected.

For example, a (Red) version of the Mac Pro customized and selected by Jony Ive and made with red aluminium went for almost twenty times it’s expected selling price, at $ 977,000. Yes, almost one million dollars. For a computer that will be out of date in a couple years, when Apple unveils something even more stunning and powerful.

Meanwhile, a Leica camera designed and custom made by Jony Ive and Marc Newson sold for $ 1.8 million, despite its expected sale price of $ 500k to $ 750k. The specs, including a f2.0 aperture, a 50mm focal length, and an anodised aluminium shell, aren’t nearly impressive enough to warrant that price. But Ive and Newson’s personal inscription clearly is.

The auction also included a pair of Rose gold EarPods, customized by Ive and Newson, which sold for far more than expected. Estimated at a value of $ 20k to $ 50k, the snazzy headphones sold for $ 461k. The perfect complement to that gold iPhone 5s, am I right?

One of the priciest items in the auction was a special desk designed by Ive and Newson, which sold for $ 1,685,000. The desk is made from anodised aluminum, and will definitely catch the eye of an y design enthusiasit, but perhaps it’s most important attribute is the men who designed it.

It just goes to show how valuable Jony Ive’s design imprint is in the age of the iPhone. Just as the iPhone itself is a household name, Ive has become one of the few designers in the world with a recognizable name. Because of this, items specially designed and chosen by him.

Jony Ive turns Mac Pro RED for charity

Suddenly, the 20th Anniversary Mac seems downright commonplace.

It’s not clear what’s different on the inside versus the regular black model, but …

This is the beautiful Leica camera designed in part by Apple’s Jony Ive

It’s a rare day that Apple chief of design Jony Ive works on a product that doesn’t bear his employer’s logo. But he’s done just that for a charity auction, working together with famed industrial designer Marc Newson to design a very special edition Leica M rangefinder camera. The one-of-a-kind camera is expected to fetch between $ 500,000-$ 750,000 at auction at Sotheby’s, with the proceeds going towards (RED), the charity founded by Bono to help fight HIV and AIDS. The partnership between the designers and the charity was announced last year.

iOS 7 reportedly still ‘a work in progress’ as Jony Ive retools Apple’s design process

Ios7-multitasking_large

No matter your opinion on iOS 7, there’s no denying it’s a radical departure from any Apple design that came before it. And according to The Next Web, that’s no accident: as Jony Ive has taken the software design reins, he has reportedly approached design and development very differently. The iOS 7 icons were apparently designed by the Apple marketing and communications department, which also determined much of the overall color and aesthetic of the operating system. App design teams were left to work on the “interiors,” with the marketing dictates guiding their decisions. The Next Web reports there was little communication between the various app teams during the design process, and that teams within each group were competing to create…
