for a commuter on cobbles, it seems like a great idea
Only available in 20" wheelset and the cost delivered to the US (sans import duties) is $1,194 for 3 speed rear/front pair. They only fit a couple of folding bikes. The technical information at the site is pretty weak. No mention of gear range on the hub and the real weight of the wheels (just 300g - 10.5 ounces more than a "standard wheel"). I hope it works better than the Pantour suspension hub front wheel I bought a decade ago. What a waste of money that was!
I have seen this kind of wheel mentioned before. IMO if it can be lightened some, and the price reduced, it looks like a great idea. The big thing here is it is passive and requires no maintence.
I can't see how anything with bendy spokes is going to stay true from one moment to the next.
I don't see a disc for brakes.

It would have to be disk brakes or drum brakes, if it had rim brakes, one good bump and your calipers would be into the spokes.
No bike does everything perfectly. In fact, no bike does anything until SOMEONE gets on it and rides.
Don't see no spokes.

It seems to have the "vertically compliant" part covered, but I would worry about the laterally stiff.
