GO FOR GOLD

Prestige (Malaysia) - - Backstory -

The Dyson Su­per­sonic hair dryer gets a cos­metic upgrade. The revered hair dryer now comes gilded with five 23.75-karat gold leaves. The en­gi­neer­ing team went through mul­ti­ple pro­to­types and ex­ten­sive test­ing to en­sure that they found pre­cisely the right hue of gold leaf for the project, even­tu­ally set­tling on this very spe­cific num­ber for an op­ti­mal fin­ish. The new blue and gold de­vice was de­signed by Sir James Dyson him­self, and uses tra­di­tional hand-gild­ing meth­ods to cre­ate the su­per-luxe fin­ish. “Gold is one of the most re­silient ma­te­ri­als in the world and has been used in de­sign, sculp­ture and ar­chi­tec­ture for cen­turies,” James Dyson said.
