Our modern culture may have a shortage on a lot of things, but there is one item in particular that there we are not lacking. The iPhone case. Filtering through case after case to find the right one that fits your phone, your needs, and your personality can be overwhelming in a market so saturated with the little protectors. Straight out of Saint Petersburg comes the Stealth iPhone Case by industrial designer Svyatoslav Boyarincev. The Stealth adds an angular mulch-faceted feel to your iPhone, and is constructed out of tough plastic and metal. Besides the cool looking design, the thing that separates this case from the others is that you can flick out one, or two of the angles and it becomes a kickstand for your phone!
Ag++ is an iPhone case by designer Andrea Ponti and Case Logic that blatantly challenges Apple’s approach. It’s rigid and durable, carved from a block of aluminum. But at the same time, it’s cognizant of your hands, with a two-part screw-lock design that accommodates the phone’s contact points with your meat mitts.
You see, Ag++ adds protection and ergonomics to the iPhone’s frame, but it does nothing to protect the (most?) commonly broken front or back glass, which can still land flat on cement or concrete. It makes you wonder about the consumer of such a product–did they not consider that durability scenario, or were they simply so enamored with a more grip-friendly iPhone that they didn’t really care?
