Nokia today announced that they are working with noted Finnish artist Björn Weckström to offer a customized, limited edition Nokia N76 multimedia computer available only at the Helsinki Nokia Flagship store. Inspired by natural forms made when the wind, together with the high tide broke up the ice along the Finnish sea shore; the miniature sculpture relief, hand-crafted by leading Finnish art jewelry house Lapponia Jewelry is permanently attached to the back of the Nokia N76. Other pieces will be sold as handset jewelry and can be attached to devices already purchased. The N76 Signature Edition by Björn Weckström has a special user interface inspired by his art.
Anssi Vanjoki, executive vice-president and general manager, Multimedia, Nokia said- “We are elighted that we were able to collaborate with one of Finland’s most treasured artists on this project, and we are even more thrilled that we are able to display some of the more prominent pieces from Mr. Weckström’s collection that have not been displayed in 25 years in our Helsinki Flagship store. ” The Nokia N76 multimedia computer blends style and substance to bring the complete Nokia Nseries experience to a sleeker body, with very little compromise.
