RE-case is the spearhead product from
MINIWIZ’s new 100% Made from Trash product line. RE-case is an iPhone
4/iPhone 4S case made with POLLIBER TM, a range of trash composites
made with processed rice husk and post-consumer thermoplastics collected from
used car bumpers, CD containers, bottle caps, etc.
RE-case’s design was inspired by the Japanese INRŌ, a carrying
case for identity seals used in the Edo Period which also served as a worry
stone. Instead of a seal, RE-case holds an RFID (radio frequency ID,
such as those for office security or public transit) or wave-able credit card
between itself and the user’s iPhone. The graduated design improves grip and
texture while retaining the aesthetic qualities of the INRŌ.
RE-case is now available in
Bumper Black, Rice, and Grains in the U.S. on Amazon, and will soon be
available in Green and Purple.
