Fluoropolymer is a molecule produced by compressing and heating granulated fluorite, which is a natural mineral. It is characterized with unique durable qualities such as high wear resistance and antifouling properties, therefore its appearance stays undamaged.
It is commonly used in the medical industry and joints for robots thanks to its extremely low-friction quality. Although very high-tech, due to its weight and warmth this material carries a natural and emotional feeling of touch.
The search of a new application for this material and its special qualities has led to the design of this collection. When closed, all white cases have the same sphere shape of 65mm in diameter, but slight indentations are located differently on each of them.
These indentation marks serve as a clue as to how the boxes open, and each case slides open in its unique way revealing the jewelry placed within.
