Summary

'Facett' Opaque Teal 95.176.180, V5.1 hearing device manufactured by Blamey Saunders in Melbourne and launched in 2018.

1/2 module colour prototyping for user tests. The teal model was created inspired by the colours of the Cerrusite in Museums Victoria Dynamic Earth. The models were accompanied by photographs of this crystalline form in user engagement sessions.

The 'Facett' hearing devices were designed by Melbourne designer Leah Heiss who was inspired by the beauty of Museum Victoria's geology collection. Launched in 2018, they were carefully designed to be a hearing device that looks good and that users want to wear. Issues addressing stigma, useability, access and cost make this collection even more unique in the hearing device industry at this time.
