iPad Mini Case in Rust Design

By Bird-Electron Shima Works 

The iPad Mini Rust Cases (¥3,980Prices are approximate only and subject to change.
White Rabbit Express service fee and other costs not included.
) are a collaboration between Bird-Electrons and Shima Works.

Taskashi Shima often employs rusty, aged surfaces to reveal their derelict beauty in his designs. The passing of time and its effect on metal is a re-occurring theme of his work and especially fascinating when paired with hi-tech objects like the shiny and glossy Apple products.
