Airbnb Hires Jony Ive For…Reasons.

Designing the Future of Airbnb:

One of the designers who Joe and I have most admired is Jony Ive, the former Chief Design Officer at Apple. Over a year ago, Jony formed a new company called LoveFrom as a collection of creatives that include designers, architects, musicians, writers, engineers, and artists.

Today, I’m thrilled to announce that Jony and his partners at LoveFrom will be engaging in a special collaboration with me and the Airbnb team. We have made the decision to work together through a multi-year relationship to design the next generation of Airbnb products and services. Jony will also help us continue to develop our internal design team, which he believes to be one of the world’s best. I know he is particularly excited about a relationship that will evolve to become a deep collaboration with our creative team.

I’m gonna go ahead and assume that everything related to Airbnb will now include aluminum.

But seriously: Get paid, Jony. I have no idea what they’re paying you for, but go ahead, get paid.
