Brikk Trim Titanium Case for iPhone 5.
Luxury design company Brikk will launch a series of limited edition luxury iPhone cases, profits from which will benefit those in need around the world. The limited edition collection revolves around the theme of “Altruistic Precision” and is launched with the Trim series of luxury titanium cases for the iPhone 4. The luxury cases are available in gold, platinum, ‘black DLC’ and ‘grey stealth’ finishes and cost from $3,000 to $4,500. They are initially only be available at Roseark shops in Los Angeles but product roll-outs in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London will follow. The company is offering to trade Trim cases purchased before the end of this year for Trim cases designed for the iPhone 5 should the external design for the soon-to-be released phone differ from current iPhone models. Brikk claims that for every Trim case sold one metric ton of rice will be distributed to “those in need through select NGOs.” No further information was given by Brikk in the September 29 statement as to how this rice would be distributed. Index Mundi which compiles country statistics using data from organizations such as the IMF estimates that currently one ton of rice costs $573.75 (€421.12). The most expensive iPhone case, featuring 300 Swarovski crystals and estimated at $40,000, was recently displayed at the ‘Miracle Mile’ shopping mall in Las Vegas.
