Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Airbnb is joining forces with iconic ex-Apple design chief Jony Ive”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Airbnb is teaming up with Jony Ive, the iconic former Apple design chief, Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky announced in a blog post Wednesday.

"Jony and his partners at LoveFrom will be engaging in a special collaboration with me and the Airbnb team," Chesky said. "We have made the decision to work together through a multi-year relationship to design the next generation of Airbnb products and services."

Ive left Apple in June 2019 to start his own firm, LoveFrom, after leading the company's design team since 1996, steering it through hallmark product launches such as the iMac in 1998, the iPhone in 2007, and the Apple Watch in 2014.

Chesky and Joe Gebbia, two of Airbnb's three co-founders, attended the Rhode Island School of Design together prior to launching the vacation-rental platform and have frequently spoken about how they take a "design-driven approach" at Airbnb, as Chesky put it Wednesday.
