Nothing, a technology firm founded by Carl Pei, has announced Teenage Engineering as a founding partner of the company. For those unaware, Teenage Engineering is a Stockholm-based company better known for their industrial design. It is spearheaded by Jesper Kouthoofd, who now is also the Creative Lead behind Nothing’s product design, said the firm in a release. 

This news comes shortly after Nothing announced it has acquired Andy Rubin’s Essential.

“I’m really excited to welcome teenage engineering to the growing Nothing family. They consist of some of the best designers and creatives that I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Together, we’ve created a product roadmap that’s unique and true to Nothing’s vision,” said Carl Pei, CEO & co-founder of Nothing.

Kouthoofd will be working along with Tom Howard, who is appointed as the Head of Design of Nothing.

“When Carl first told me about Nothing’s vision I remember being super excited thinking about how this would be translated into the design identity of the products. After months of research and development, we are now in a place where I believe we will have something exciting to show to the world,” said Jesper Kouthoofd, Founding Partner and Creative Lead of Nothing.

Nothing has confirmed that it will be launching the first products in the coming months. However, no particular timeline has been provided.

The company recently announced that it is opening up for its community to invest as part of its Series A. It has been mentioned that so far, over 20,000 people have signed up for early access with a registered interest close to $30 million in total. This community funding round will be carried out through a crowdfund campaign starting on March 2.
