About this project
Keplero is the first magnetic Luxury Wallet made of pure carbon fiber. The thinnest and lightest ever. It’s beautifully simple, stylish and intuitively unique in its handling.
Keplero is incredibly easy to use. It has no mechanical components thanks to its magnetic mechanism, it can even be used with one hand. Moreover since it is modular you can decide for yourself how many credit cards it should hold making it as thin as desidered.
You won’t even have to give up your banknotes because of the convenient money clip on the back.
The main concept for Keplero was simplicity and elegance. We asked ourselves how we could include in a single product all the important features found in other wallets. We challenged ourselves to solve all the problems that had plagued the best designers for many years and finally Keplero was born, the first wallet which is amazingly thin, lightweightbut durable, modular and exclusively stylish.
Carbon fiber is used in aircraft and racing car construction, chosen for its perfect balance of lightness, durability and resistance. Each part of Keplero is precision milled from a single block of carbon fiber. Without any mechanical parts and built in solid carbon, Keplero will last forever.
- Length: 4.1” (104 mm)
- Width : 2.59” (66 mm)
- Weight: from 0.98 oz (28 grams)
- Thickness : from 0.157” (4 mm)
We made several tests and this is the most difficult we want to show to you.
If Keplero was able to overcome this test we are sure that it will not take another. Yes, Keplero has withstood the weight of a steamroller of over 5.5k lb without breaking it one bit. Now we can say : “Keplero will last forever”.
The RFID-blocking system used by Keplero has successfully gone through substantial testing and verification by a third-party inspection firm.
Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenge is delivering on schedule. From experience, we’ve found that having a working prototype is not enough. In order to accurately calculate manufacturing time, a production run is needed.
We’ve done this and planned for any deadlines.
We work closely with our suppliers and this allows us to keep prices down and have control over the processes involved.
