Cambridge, MA – On July 14 2015, LuxMea Design Studio launched a Kickstarter campaign for Skraep, an award-winning design concept that transforms crumpled scrap paper by 3D printing.
“Skraep is a jewelry concept with a deconstructed form inspired by the futile aesthetics reflected in a crumbled scrap of paper,” the team explains, “With LuxMea’s unmatched accuracy in 3D printing procedures, the charm and playfulness of crumpled paper can be recreated in a variety of materials with economic efficiency, allowing it to be enjoyed by consumers at affordable prices.”
Although it appears simple at first glance, a crumpled piece of paper is actually quite complex, its form determined by the interactions of dozens of folds. It’s easy to create in your hands, but much harder to model and construct. Skraep was designed using the team’s custom-built physics engine. By simulating the same forces your hands apply in shaping a piece of paper, they were able to capture the essence of this complex object.
In April 2015, the Skraep Pendant won a Golden award in the prestigious A’ Design Competition held in Milan. Now LuxMea Design Studio is introducing three major product lines to Kickstarter: the decorative toy, pendant and cuff. Skraep toys come in either the plastic or steel collection, or the standing white stoneware. Pendants and cuffs are available in rose gold, white gold, yellow gold, and sterling silver.
“LuxMea is a multidisciplinary design studio specializing in innovative concepts & global strategies. We are driven by the imagination of our designers, and we believe in investing in their vision,” the creators says. “We’d love to have more support, since reaching our goal on Kickstarter means we’ll be able to bring you more exciting designs. In addition, 2% of future proceeds will be donated to the YMCA.”
“We longed for those innocent days of childhood when we threw crumpled paper with words we couldn’t speak out loud. And we want to bring those sweet memories back,” the designer says. “Express your love and speak it out loud. Skraep will be a perfect Thanksgiving / Christmas gift for yourself and your loved one.”
In exchange for pledging to the project, backers can gain access to a variety of rewards including a white, red or yellow-colored plastic toy version of Skraep for $35, a set of three steel toys for $200, and much more! Backers can also pledge $338 for one 14K gold-plated pendant (in rose gold, white gold or yellow gold), and $468 for a gold-plated cuff.
