Iconic Eero Aarnio creates first designer charger, Mr. Charger, coming from Oulu in Finland

Asmo, based in Oulu, Finland, and best known for its fire-safe Asmo charger, is launching a new product: Mr. Charger.

- We wanted to bring design to mobile devices that everyone uses, as well as bring engineering to design. We wanted to bring joy and life to them, and to spread Finnish design to the world, founder Asmo Saloranta explains.

After the first charger, Saloranta wanted to make the best possible charger that is of high quality, durablility, power, and, above all, beauty.

- We wanted the best design from the best designer and we asked Eero Aarnio, CEO Marc Dillon says.

The two of them find inspiration in doing what no one else has done before - and a designer charger certainly isn't run-of-the-mill. Mr. Charger is decidedly adorable, but also carries the staple look of the hand that is behind it.

Legendary designer Eero Aarnio was inspired by the project because nobody had previously made a design charger. Aarnio poured over the idea for a few months and then came up with Mr. Charger.

- Aarnio's work is playful, fun and unique, just like the work we do. That's why we wanted Aarnio to design this charger. His work certainly leaves no one cold and Aarnio has made great innovations during his career. We are a perfect match, Saloranta says and continues:

- I've always liked Aarnio's style and wanted to have his design in my home for my family. Now I got something better: Our own charger designed by Aarnio. This is truly an honor and privilege.

The collaboration is not going to be a one-off: Asmo Solutions is going to launch more mobile devices designed by Finnish designers in the future. And that’s how Finnish design hopes to reach homes all over the world.
