The smartphone business is a huge market in which strong players are fighting for their market shares. When you are a company competing in such intense environment you have 2 choices. Either you go for the fight and try to get a piece of the cake from the big players, or you innovate and you take a different approach. And this is the case of Savelli Genève. Their approach of the smartphone business is based on ultimate luxury and poetry in the palm of your hand. Going away from technologic gadgets, Savelli Genève proposes a beautiful and well thought collection of smartphones in which you can have a high-level of of customization. Each phone is a jewel that every woman would dream to have. More than a phone, it is a Savelli phone. And for that it is our company of the month.

When you ask Savelli why did they choose to establish themselves in Switzerland, the answer is pretty straight forward. They explain they wanted to gather exceptional know how around jewelry and technology. Only a place for that: Switzerland. Switzerland and especially Geneva developed an amazing know-how and tradition in terms of Jewellery, watch-making and high-tech in general. What you need to know is that every single phone by Savelli is a piece of art, all assembled in Switzerland.

At the beginning there was “the line”

For every amazing design, there is always a starting point and for Savelli smartphones it is what we call the  line of grace.  This is an interesting concept developed and analyzed by William Hogarth in the 18th century in a book he wrote about aesthetics and art called The Analysis of Beauty. Here are some illustrations from the book.

William Hogarth is an english painter, sculptor and engraver born in the 18th century. Hogarth wrote and published his ideas of artistic design in his book The Analysis of Beauty (1753). In it, he professes to define the principles of beauty and grace which he, a real child of Rococo, saw realized in serpentine lines (the Line of Beauty). The line of beauty or line of grace display a perfect balance between aesthetics, diversity and femininity. Nothing more elegant, beautiful and mind-blowing than an outstanding woman silhouette.

By designing everything from this principle of perfect harmonious beauty, Savelli created the ultimate feminine phone in which elegance, sensuality and luxury play together as a master-piece.

There are some interesting functionalities developed by Savelli. The first one is the “Mirror”. It is an application in the main menu that activates the front facing camera for your convenience.  Several choices of frames ara available, so you can customize your mirror, from Snow white to hollywood starts. The second interesting app is the Flashlight. This application available in the main menu activates the screen in bright white light so that you may use it a flashlight in a dark environment. Final but definitely not least, the Jardin Secret app. In French:  Secret Garden. Here is how Savelli explains the functionality of this app: wherever you travel, your Jardin Secret app suggests events and experiences to surprise, spoil and inspire. Pinpointed to your location. Shaped to your interests and tastes. Once you have inserted your Sim card and preferably when you have a Wi-Fi connection, go through the simple registration to create your account. A personalization call is scheduled in order to tailor experiences to your own preferences. This last app is for the moment in development, so Savelli is finalizing the details that will bring your experience beyond the simple Concierge service.
