In a world where consumers’ tastes are constantly changing, hardware makers are also keeping their pace to create designs that appeal to the public. Lenovo ensured that the designing of the Yoga 920 2-in-1 convertible laptop is on an entirely new approach.

From a pool of top-talented design students at Italy’s prestigious Istituto Europeo di Design (IED Milan), Lenovo created a contest that seeks design concepts for the Yoga 920’s Gorilla Glass cover. The mission was to create a design that would catch today’s global consumer’s heart through an eye-catching but an inspired design that complements performance, portability, and versatility of a premium laptop. The designer’s entry would secure a scholarship from Lenovo.

Different nationalities produced complex competitive designs. After considerable deliberation, Louis Aymonod’s “Vibes of Elegance” has been selected by the panel of judges as the contest winner. The design would be best described according to Lenovo as an undulating carpet of lines consisting pale-to-white dots against an onyx-colored backdrop that gives the glass cover a sense of movement or, what Aymonod described as “visual vibration”. The design is mainly inspired of nature “as design instrument of themselves,” according to Aymonod.

The limited edition Lenovo Yoga 920 Vibes comes in a uniquely stylish cover offering world-class performance and immersive entertainment. A wide-angled 4K display will make the absolute most of your visuals. Accompanied with Lenovo Active Pen 2 emulates the easy comfort of a pen-on-paper writing experience. Through the help of Window’s Ink, your thoughts can turn into actions‒draw on a map and instantly receive turn-by-turn driving directions and more. Microsoft's Cortana on the Yoga 920 Vibes is a voice-activated digital assistant that can answer your questions, open your apps, etc. The Yoga 920 Vibes can respond to spoken questions and instructions in standby mode from up to four meters away.

The Yoga 920 Vibes is packed with competitive performance with up to 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor, Windows 10 Home, 720p HD fixed-focus CMOS camera with far-field microphones, and up to 10.8 hours battery life. It is available in platinum color featuring Gorilla glass cover design. The Lenovo Yoga 920 Vibes will be available in October 2017.
