Recently Received: Nix Pro Sensor

Nix

Recently I had the pleasure of testing the Nix Pro Color Sensor. Originally developed in 2012, the compact Bluetooth enabled device allows you to easily capture and save colors from the real world. Simply hover over an object, click “scan” on the iPhone synced app, and Nix will  convert the found color into RGB, CMYK, HEX, and CIELAB values. Once entered into the app, the color profile can be saved and organized into palettes to be referenced at a later time.

For designers, Nix is a dream tool that replaces the need to carry around heavy swatchbooks. Since it’s lightweight and roughly the size of a ping pong ball, it can be easily stored in a bag or backpack and it’s innovative design allows for a more accurate method of color matching. In addition, color swatches can be compared against each other, making for a powerful and effective tool for client work in the field.

For grain edit readers, Nix is currently offering 10% off a purchase of a Nix Pro Color Sensor.

Recently Received: NAVA

Nava Superbag

NAVA is an Italian brand that has strong roots in the design community. Established in 1970, they have a long history of working with the leading designers of the day. Nendo Projects, Massimo Vignelli, Enzo Mari, Naoto Fukasawa and Max Huber are just a few of the designers that NAVA has collaborated with over the years. The success of these partnerships has allowed NAVA to craft a functional yet undeniably stylish product line that supercedes vain fashion.  Many of these products have gone on to become icons that are still displayed in museums and galleries around the world.

We recently received a package from NAVA which contained items from the latest Michel Charlot collaboration as well as a classic notepad/daily planner designed by Max Huber during the early stages of the company. We explore these products in words and pictures after the jump.
