Kevin Costner wears ENERGETIX

Kevin Cost­ner, the Amer­i­can actor, film pro­duc­er, direc­tor and musi­cian who appeared on the cov­er of the 2011/2012 ENERGETIX cat­a­logue, wears ENERGETIX Bin­gen mag­net­ic jew­ellery — at a pho­to shoot for Arqueo­nau­tas.

In the Novem­ber issue of the fash­ion mag­a­zine InStyle, Oscar win­ner Kevin Cost­ner can clear­ly be seen wear­ing ENERGETIX’s braid­ed bracelet 1750 in the dou­ble-page Arqueo­nau­tas adver­tise­ment.

The same mag­a­zine also con­tains a ten-page fash­ion fea­ture with sought-after mod­el Franziska Knuppe. FROGBLOG read­ers can find out about the con­nec­tion between Franziska Knuppe and ENERGETIX Bin­gen in one of the com­ing arti­cles.

In the flow: Tessi, the Magnet Finder – Android app by ENERGETIX Bingen

Now avail­able to down­load for free from Google Play!

Tes­si start screen

ENERGETIX Bin­gen has intro­duced anoth­er tech­ni­cal inno­va­tion: Tes­si, the Mag­net Find­er.

Easy „scan­ning“ for mag­net­ic flows

Tes­si, the app for Android mobile phones (from Ver­sion Gin­ger­Bread 2.3.3), graph­i­cal­ly indi­cates mag­net­ic flows through the body on mobile phone dis­plays to wear­ers of ENERGETIX mag­net­ic jew­ellery.

Dis­trib­u­tors may now down­load the app free from Google Play. Just enter „Ener­getix Tes­si“ in the Google Play search func­tion, select the app and start the Tes­si down­load. The down­load will start after con­fir­ma­tion.

Open­ing the fol­low­ing link on your Android mobile phone will take you direct­ly to Tes­si in Google Play:

What can Tes­si do and how does the new app work?

The Android mobile phone must be held over the part of the body where the mag­net­ic jew­ellery is being worn.

Take care here not to place the mobile phone direct­ly on the mag­net­ic jew­ellery but that the mag­net­ic jew­ellery is cov­ered by a part of the body (e.g. the hand) when it is „scanned“.

Tes­si, the Mag­net Find­er

The large ENERGETIX frog remains vis­i­ble at all times. Its colour inten­si­ty will change when Tes­si finds a mag­net­ic flow dur­ing the scan­ning process.

The frog will turn an inten­sive red when a strong mag­net­ic flow is detect­ed.

Sen­sor search func­tion

Tes­si pos­sess­es a prac­ti­cal sen­sor-search func­tion for fast and sim­ple „scan­ning“. Once the Android mobile phone sen­sor has been local­ized and the loca­tion saved, you’ll be able to check at any time where the sen­sor is locat­ed on the mobile phone by launch­ing the sen­sor search func­tion again.

Background and a look behind the scenes: The new jewellery collection — interview: part IV/V

Inter­view with Janine Eisen­hauer, head of jew­ellery design at ENERGETIX Bin­gen.

Over the com­ing weeks, FROGBLOG will be upload­ing parts of the entire inter­view. So it’ll be worth com­ing back to take a look!


ENERGETIX is tread­ing new ground by launch­ing its new range of bracelets made from sil­i­cone.

J. E.: A very long peri­od of devel­op­ment has now been brought to fruition. We set our­selves the goal of devel­op­ing an entire­ly new ENERGETIX prod­uct with, of course, inte­grat­ed mag­nets espe­cial­ly for peo­ple who like to do sports. It was a great chal­lenge to incor­po­rate the mag­nets in such a way that the bracelet remained water­proof and we expe­ri­enced many set­backs. But it is what dis­tin­guish­es the sportEX bracelets in the main from the nor­mal col­lec­tion and oth­er con­ven­tion­al sil­i­cone bracelets used in the field of sports. The sportEX bracelet con­tains three inte­grat­ed mag­nets and is water­proof. We trod entire­ly new ground in the devel­op­ment of these bracelets and found a Ger­man part­ner who main­ly cre­ates sil­i­cone com­po­nents for the auto­mo­tive indus­try to coop­er­ate with us in its devel­op­ment and pro­duc­tion.

Franziska van Alm­sick – the face of the new sportEX bracelets made from flex­i­ble sil­i­cone

We were able to win Franziska van Alm­sick, who is a  won­der­ful mod­el, for the sportEX cam­paign, which made me real­ly hap­py. She com­bines many char­ac­ter­is­tics that are par­tic­u­lar­ly ide­al for our prod­uct. Work­ing with her on the set was super pro­fes­sion­al but we also had lots of fun as the pho­tos clear­ly show.

The sportEX bracelets take up the top­i­cal trends in colours as well as in design and mate­r­i­al.

J. E.: Yes, we didn’t want to lim­it our­selves to just one colour and have come up with six: the cur­rent­ly fash­ion­able colours of pink, green, blue and grey. In addi­tion to the stan­dard colours of black and white. We real­ized the design in con­junc­tion with a team of prod­uct design­ers based in Berlin.


The sil­i­cone mate­r­i­al is very sup­ple to the touch. It is coat­ed with an anti­sta­t­ic pro­tec­tive film and all the ingre­di­ents used nat­u­ral­ly com­ply with all the rel­e­vant EU direc­tives.


There are lots of many dif­fer­ent facets to New York and it was the ide­al choice for the loca­tion to shoot the pho­tos for the Char­ac­ter col­lec­tion. The team trav­elled to the DUMBO dis­trict to shoot the pho­tos. ..

J. E.: DUMBO sounds strange at first. But it’s an acronym and stands for, „Down Under Man­hat­tan Bridge Over­pass“. Not real­ly idyl­lic, was it? But the pho­tos have turned out real­ly great. You often go to unusu­al dis­tricts to cap­ture their spe­cial atmos­phere in the pic­tures. DUMBO is dirty and dusty and the noise is deaf­en­ing when the sub­way rat­tles across Man­hat­tan Bridge. We found the motifs between a trans­former sta­tion and ware­hous­es. And, as often hap­pens in New York, the dis­trict is slow­ly becom­ing fash­ion­able with real-estate prices increas­ing and mod­ern archi­tec­ture sprout­ing up between the some­what run-down build­ings. We encoun­tered three oth­er film and pho­to pro­duc­tions while we were there.

And is there any­thing new in regard to Char­ac­ter, Janine?

Cat­e­go­ry Char­ac­ter — bracelet 2112

J. E.: Bracelet 2112 deserves a spe­cial men­tion here as it is actu­al­ly quite evoca­tive of cob­ble­stones or brick­work struc­tures. I think its rather strik­ing and mas­cu­line. There’s nat­u­ral­ly also a match­ing pen­dant.

The items of jew­ellery on Page 99 of the cat­a­logue put you in mind of the yin-yang sym­bol fre­quent­ly encoun­tered in Asia. Not a coin­ci­dence, or?

J. E.: No, we were indeed inspired by the clas­si­cal yin and yang for this series. It has been real­ized here with two pen­dant ele­ments that are able to stand on their own but that may also be worn in com­bi­na­tion. Two U-shapes that mesh with each oth­er – almost like large horse­shoe mag­nets.

EX in the City — page 99

The series also includes beads that func­tion just like the pen­dant as well as a cen­tral bracelet ele­ment with strong mag­nets where the two U-shape ele­ments are encoun­tered again.

Thank you, Janine, speak to you in Part 5.
