V-MODA’s New V-MAN Universal Object Servant,
Shaped from a Singular Piece of Steel,
Forges an Instant Icon of Angular Design
Modern, matte finished and unique, V-MAN is a sculptured conversation starter of form and function that elegantly serves headphones and any other object
MILANO, Italy – Nov. 28, 2018 – V-MODA, the award-winning manufacturer of the world’s finest high-fidelity audio devices, today announces the availability of its new V-MAN, crafted from 100% stainless steel for a minimal and sleek Milano design that is as stylish as it is functional. V-MAN is not only a headphone stand, but also, a universal object servant that fits harmoniously into any home, office or studio interior in timeless black and silver finishes.
“Iconic design has been our verve since the very beginning,” said Val Kolton, CEO of V-MODA. “In our Milano Design studio, we are empowered with our expertise in technology interwoven with continuous inspiration from the finest art, sculpture, furniture, fashion and motorsports of the world. I sketched V-MAN after a visit to the Peggy Guggenheim museum in Venezia during the VORTICISTS rebel artists exhibition. To me, V-MAN represents the essential minimalism planes of humanity in a mechanistic and futuristic pose that can serve the world and its master.”
Despite its simplicity, the V-MAN stand is a crafted design piece that makes a powerful statement in any environment influenced by the short-lived Vorticism movement, Brutalist and De Stijl design techniques and trending minimalist interiors. Being forged in stainless steel gives a more physical presence to V-MAN, balancing the sleek and evanescent side view through a discrete amount of weight and stability.
V-MAN stands out from the crowd of headphone stands on the market, which are typically limited in terms of shape, design and interaction with the headphones they are set to hold. V-MAN is an extreme representation of purpose through its shape. The design represents an iconic, simplified silhouette of a man prone on his knees offering something precious above his shoulders to his master. Its sharp geometrical form, steel build and high-end finishes, such as automotive-grade powder coating, draws inspiration from the sleek lines and edgy design of high-end, high-performance Italian automakers such as Lamborghini.
Designed by Val Kolton, V-MODA Founder & CEO, V-MAN is formed by seamless Vs sculpted from one singular piece of steel to display the headphones and protect them from scratching or collecting dust. V-MAN keeps any desk, office or home organized, while elegantly displaying V-MODA headphones, or any other brand of headsets. Its innovative design makes for a versatile shape that can be used not only as a headphone stand, but as a servant to any object, such as a smartphone, keys, tablet or even fruits such as grapes.
