One earphone — many possibilities.
Story
53.6 million tonnes of e‑waste in 2019
This is equal to the weight of the entire population of Europe. If this waste is not disposed of properly, toxic materials can be released into the environment.

UN ITU E-waste Monitor 2020
1 billion earphones sold in 2020
Earphones are the most used electronic accessory. Because of their small size, they are almost irreparable and are thrown away carelessly. On average, wireless earphones are used for 2 years only.
Modular
Ecological
Modularity means that you can repair and upgrade individual components easily.

Repairing your product is cheaper than buying a new one, so it stays in use longer.

Long-lasting products can save vast amounts of resources and electronic waste, which makes them more ecological.
Set a statement — listen sustainably.
Project
Origin
Elements was created as a bachelor project by Timo Flury in 2020 at the Zurich University of the Arts.
Team
Timo Flury, Design, ZHdK
Severin Meier, Engineering, ETH Zurich
Motivation
We believe that selling short-lived electronics is not acceptable anymore and repairable products should become the standard again. Step by step, we want to develop more ecological products.
