About this Limited Edition:

Limited Edition boxes offer customers the chance to connect more individually with their Kinetic Ring Box. Each of the 20 pieces in every limited run are individually numbered, dated, and engraved with the owner's unique message. As our idealized design expression of both function and form, these pieces use premium materials, components, and finishes.

 

In addition to serialization and engraving expected of any limited run, this first run of limited edition boxes use 7075-T6 aluminum alloy and feature a highly-polished, mirror-like finish on their external faces.

 

(Please note that the photos provided depict a box made to these specifications but do not depict the specific box made for this listing as engraving and marking for each box will be coordinated after 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 velvet-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 velvet-covered insert while closed. The pointed ends of three curved panels act as feet when closed, allowing the box to sit on its end.
