Gorgeous iPhone Cases Made of Paper

It is rare to find really amazing art that is meant to be a functional piece of daily technology. These iPhone cases from Twig Case Co. are just that.

The cases are indeed made from paper. Well, technically it is called Richlite. Made from trees from Sweden and Brazil. These are the first cases to use Richlite and it is extremely strong. It is also extremely efficient in production.

For those objecting due to forestry or unsustainability concerns, rest easy. Each case is FSC and Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning that
the process is utilizing the responsible management of our planet’s wooden resources. The FSC is a non-profit organization that was created to stop the irresponsible foresting of the rainforest and other endangered areas.

For those looking for a unique and high-quality iPhone case, the choice is clear. These Twig Co. cases well designed and will last you beyond the life of the iPhone.

I know i am picking one up soon.

Aluminum Wood Casting- Tech Meets Nature in These Beautiful Design

Israeli artist Hilla Shamia manages to create a modern/natural art piece made of aluminum and wood that remains functional while still conjuring a wide range of emotional and ideological triggers. These are gorgeous pieces that can not only stand in a gallery, but also in a home as a table or a seat.

The process involves, and this is by no means an in-depth explanation, pouring the extremely hot aluminum into a casting with the wood at the bottom. The goal is to have as little oxygen in that space as possible and then get the aluminum to cool quick enough. The result is charring instead of burning.

These are aesthetically perfect to me. I would love to have a piece sitting in my office.

Classy Thrones for Your Apple Stuff

I’ll always love plastic and glass furniture, but if I ever made the switch to wood, I’d have to pick up one of these trays by Hekseskudd. Some come with spaces to position one or more iPod docks, adding a bit of modern day functionality to what the tray has always been good for - holding stuff. There’s also a model that holds the bluetooth keyboad, remote, and trackpad. At $159.99, the prices for the two above are actually somewhat affordable. If you need your fix of wooden Apple accessories but don’t want to throw down on something that steep, they also offer a mini wooden tray with an iPod dock spacing for $59.99.
