Braun S9

Wishlist: Google Home Max, Braun Shaver, Military Overshirt

If, like most men out there, you can’t afford the luxury of a lazy workweek morning and you want to trim the facial hair but can’t fit a wet shave into your packed schedule, then the Braun S9 has you sorted. Housed in a titanium-coated body, the S9 – thanks to its 10,000 sonic micro-vibrations, constant adjustments (13 adjustments per second, to be precise) and 40,000 cross-cutting actions every minute – glides effortlessly and painlessly over any weekend stubble you’ve grown. Moreover, at the flick of a switch, the shaver head locks into a one of five fixed positions in order to maintain those awkward, hard-to-reach places (including below the nose) and the integrated precision trimmer also allows for accurate side-burn sculpting.

Made with a curved shape and a rubberised pattern for extra grip, the S9 also comes with a Clean & Charge station which not only neatly stores and charges the razor, but also lubricates, disinfects and dries it. What more do you expect from a device that’s gone through 1,000 production stages and 200 quality checks?

Bassi B/01

Wishlist: Google Home Max, Braun Shaver, Military Overshirt

Created by JJJJound and Bassi at their Montreal-based design studio, the B/01 is inspired by the relaxed angles of Japanese touring bikes and the durable nature of a road bike. Key features include rubber MKS pedals, a Wald steel handlebar and a lightweight chromoly steel frame. Its deep green colourway also makes it one of the most stylish two-wheelers on the market. Ideal for relaxed and short-distanced riding, but also strong enough to handle hard city commutes, the B/01 is ideal to use in almost all occasions.

The simple silhouette is made without visible joints to ensure that the Chipperfield W102 will blend seamlessly into any abode, while directional movement with rotation at the base makes for an ergonomic design. Brushed and treated with clear matte lacquer, this is a must-have for any home office.

Google Home Max

Wishlist: Google Home Max, Braun Shaver, Military Overshirt

Google has just upped its audio game even further with the launch of the Home Max. This large multiroom-capable speaker with Assistant was brought to the market earlier this week and is 20 times more powerful than the existing home. That’s no surprise given that it has custom tweeters and two 4.5 inch woofers hidden behind the fabric grille shell. Also, the AI automatically adapts the output depending on where it is in the room and it learns your living patterns as well; for example, it’ll lower the volume in the morning or will be louder when your dishwasher is on. Available now in chalk or charcoal.
