About this Limited Edition:
Our Third Limited Edition Kinetic Ring Box features a matte space grey anodized finish on its machined aluminum enclosure. Within the mechanism itself, further improvements to the joint design and assembly process have resulted in our most consistent, reliable, and precise movement to date.
Keeping with the space theme of this edition, we're introducing an optional star field laser engraving on all six faces of the cube which depict the night sky at a specific time, date, and location chosen by the buyer. The parameters of this moment are captured in an additional engraving on a concealed panel edge
Like previous runs, all purchases include complementary laser engraving of a custom message. These messages are placed discretely on a panel edge where they're visible while the box is open but concealed when closed.
Each box in this limited run of 40 pieces is laser-marked with its individual number, assembly date, design iteration, and design version. These markings are positioned similarly to the custom message and star field parameters, but oriented such that they aren't visible to the ring's recipient when the box is presented. Customized engravings will be placed in the same location on an adjacent panel to ensure that your personalized message is the only text that the recipient may see when the ring is revealed.
Piece numbers within the run will be issued to customers in the order of purchase.
About the Kinetic Ring Box:
In the Kinetic Ring Box's patent pending design, six faces of a cube are formed by the links of mobius kaleidocycle mechanism. With each face mapped to an individual link, the entirety of the box transforms during the opening process, revealing its contents in one fluid motion. Its single degree of freedom movement results in motion which is fluid, satisfying, and will continue to mesmerize even years after introduction.
Inside of the Kinetic Ring Box's machined aluminum mechanism, a silk-wrapped foam insert is installed to carry the box's contents. While closing, the insert's segmented design is wrapped around the ring, holding it securely in place. When opened, the foam insert flattens while continuing to grip safely onto the ring.
To permit opening of the Kinetic Ring Box's mechanism, the back of the box has a curved opening which is closed by its silk-covered insert while closed. The pointed ends of three curved panels act as feet when closed, allowing the box to sit on its end.
