July/August 2019

From a groundbreaking seaside museum in China to an elegant new sofa by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Azure’s July/August issue unveils the 20 winners of the ninth annual AZ Awards!

From sunglasses to running shoes and watches, everything is being embedded with technology. Here are three great new finds.

1 Soundglasses by Buhel
The arms of Buhel’s Kickstarter-funded Soundglasses conduct sound waves through bone directly to the ear. Wirelessly connected to a smartphone, they let you listen to your favourite ’80s hits, guilt-free, and no one will be the wiser.

2 Ultra Boost by Adidas
Adidas Ultra Boost shoes – with a minimalist floral upper in dusty hues, by Stella McCartney – will add bounce to your step via soles that hide an energy-returning system, which was developed using software borrowed from the aeronautics industry.

3 Activité by Withings
Withings Activité measures steps walked, calories burned and the wearer’s sleep quality, all while presenting a classic face that moves seamlessly from gym to boardroom. ­
