GO FOR GOLD
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.
