'Facett' 1c FS1 Lid (facetted lid) hearing device charger manufactured by Blamey Saunders in Melbourne and launched in 2018.

This was one of the first iterations that tried a faceted form for the lid. This was informed by origami folded structures that designer Leah Heiss developed. The interior prototypes a linear arrangement of modules. The hollow at the left of the form houses the DSP module.

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.
