Wow… A pure titanium case for your iPhone. That’s not all though, you can get it in gold, platinum, black or gray finishes and the prices range from $3,000 up to $4,500 for them. Yes, that’s in the thousands, that’s not a typo, and yes it’s just the case, phone not included. I know that even if I had the money, there’s no way I would spend it on a case for a phone that will be obsolete in less than a year…. On the other hand though, a percentage of the profits from the sales will go to charity to help feed people around the world
Brikk (http://www.brikk.com), design and branding pioneers, today announced the launch of their limited edition product line of high-end, pure titanium cases for the iPhone4 and iPhone5. Themed ‘Altruistic Precision,’ the collection launches with the Trim™ – a case for iPhone4 and iPhone5, crafted from titanium for the luxury market. The Trim is available in genuine Gold, Platinum, Black DLC and Gray Stealth finishes and rages from $3,000-$4,500 (USD). Each Trim™ sold will fund one metric ton of rice distributed by various NGOs.
Targeted to the consumer seeking premium, luxury mobile phone accessories, the Trim is available in Los Angeles exclusively at Roseark (http://www.roseark.com) locations. Additional product rollout in New York, London, Paris and Tokyo will follow.
With the impending release of the iPhone5 by Apple, Brikk is offering a trade-in to the Trim for iPhone 5, for all purchases of the Trim before the end of 2011.
Brikk’s ‘profit for philanthropy’ model funnels proceeds to assist populations around the world suffering from hunger. For each product sold, a specific amount of rice is allocated and distributed to those in need through select NGOs to areas in need such as Somalia and the Horn of Africa. Brikks dream is simple; for other luxury brands to adopt a permanent ‘profit for philanthropy’ model.
