With the audio competition continuing to intensify, popular designer and manufacturer FIIL teamed up with experimental art company Street Art House for this month’s celebrity-filled Miami Art Basel. With the collabo, the two brands launched design collaborations and events with some of the world’s most prolific street artists.

At the jam-packed outing, Street Art House previewed its new augmented art program while FIIL powered the high-resolution audio for an unforgettable full immersive experience. The invitation-only experience featured augmented art by the pop artist James Haunt and music by DJ Jazzy Jeff.

Peep below for some insane event moments and more details!

Mutual Inspiration Bridges Art and Music

As many visual artists and musicians will attest, each draws inspiration from the other’s medium. Many street artists listen to music to inspire them while they create amazing
canvases. In turn, musicians draw inspiration from the art of canvas to create their music. As a company dedicated to helping all artists reach their full potential of expression and creativity, FIIL was established to provide those with a passion for music with a great sounding headphone – one capable of conveying the true brilliance and obsession of each musical note, beat and the work as a whole providing inspiration.

Augmented Art Powered by New Visual and Audio Technologies

Pairing up with a new augmented art division of Street Art House that uses technology to tell the stories behind the artists and their artwork, FIIL looks forward to supporting the artist community in new and exciting ways. The first was the immersive augmented experience at Art Basel, which incorporated FIIL’s high-resolution wireless headphones with Street Art House’s AR technology and talent. Guests wore FIIL headphones while viewing artwork and had the opportunity to learn about participating artists, watch them create and listen to their musical influences.

The Headphone as Artistic Medium: “The Artist’s Collection”

Additionally, Street Art House and FIIL commissioned art from street artists to use the headphone as a medium and create a newly designed headphone series called “The Artist
Collection.” These new designs will showcase the collaboration and work of these prominent artists while simultaneously helping FIIL grow its CURATOR Program, a collection of well-known artists who tie music to creativity, in a variety of artistic disciplines.
