Nova Locket is women’s wearable concept I designed at ACAD with a place for a tactile functioning reminder of what is really important. Along with its tactile to emotional connectivity it has the ability to redirect cellular intrusions by filtering out what calls for your immediate attention and what can wait. In a time where the quality of private experience is few and far to notifications and data collection Nova Locket works to bring the best of both worlds together in the best way possible.
I really wanted to make sure each part of the packaging could be elevated as a keepsake with dual uses rather than discarding the encasement material like with most purchasable products. The user manual is held by a leather case designed to be used as a wallet, the slide top wood box made to house other valued collected items, and the charging unit itself is also a leather cord bracelet that magnetically secures around the wrist where the lightning to USB connection tips disappear joining to the magnetic piece.
All designed, shaped, assembeled, built, and photographed components of this project are my own.
