Brikk announced the limited edition Trim line of high-end iPhone 4 cases crafted from pure titanium and priced at a jaw-dropping $3,000-$4,500 (USD). The Trim will be available in genuine Gold, Platinum, Black DLC and Gray Stealth finishes.
Brikk hopes to use their philanthropy to attract luxury buyers and is calling their case collection Altruistic Precision. Each Trim sold will fund one metric ton of rice distributed by various NGOs to areas in need such as Somalia and the Horn of Africa. It is Brikk's hope other luxury brands adopt a permanent profit for philanthropy model.
Targeted to the consumer seeking premium, luxury mobile phone accessories, the Trim is available in Los Angeles exclusively at Roseark locations. Additional product rollout in New York, London, Paris and Tokyo will follow.
With the impending release of the iPhone 5 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 designs and manufactures jewelry and products for the technology, lifestyle, and fashion industries. Items are composed primarily of titanium and other exotic alloys and accented with precious materials including gold, platinum, DLC and sapphire. The metals and processes utilized are more commonly applied to scientific purposes such as space travel and exploration. Rarely, if ever, have they been used for the consumer market. Products coming later this year include the Heptagon (ring), Self (mirror) and Band (belt).
