The revolutionary Lockstone range: crafted from a meticulous study of nature to capture and enhance the life of your fragrances.
Inspired by nature, developed by science and designed with a focus upon minimalist, streamlined aesthetics.
Capture and enhance your fragrance. Whatever your scent – Lockstone captures it – Just spray with your favourite fragrance and it will last approximately seven times longer than wearing your fragrance without it.
We’ve harnessed a high-tech polymer, and combined it with precision turned metal – meaning that Lockstone items will look as good today as they will tomorrow and for years to come; all with a reassuring weight of quality while light enough to go unnoticed when worn.
Lockstone is a piece that can be teamed with any style - as suited to men as they are to women, and as wearable for the formal occasion as they are for the every day.
The pumice stone: on the outside it’s an incredibly simple object – yet within it are thousands of intricate structures – structures that make for micro aerated pathways, allowing this otherwise innocuous item to absorb and retain moisture for long durations.
This naturally created material has been under the microscope within our labs – where we’ve been able to harness micro-porous structures to create a revolutionary material.
This all-new, patent pending material draws fragrance in, slowly releasing the scent over a long duration. For you this means longer lasting and better performing fragrances – where expensive designer scents enjoy a longer life and through which an aroma can be sustained far beyond a single day’s wear.
We've reinvented the classic piece that is the pendant; through a focus upon clean lines and an impactful, minimalist design we’ve created an item that delivers long lasting aroma whilst equally adding subtle style to any outfit. For men, for women, for the formal and for the every day.
Each of our pendants are simply infused with any given fragrance via the stem. Our breakthrough material then emanates scent as the stem warms against the skin.
Through combining machine turned stainless steel and brass with classic style we’ve found powerful partners, creating a design that is as practical as it is elegant. Our cuff links are perfect for anyone who is allergic to commercial fragrance, as the fragrance is not in contact with the skin.
Stainless steel will retain a timeless quality and shine throughout its life. Brass and copper will become unique to you as they age and patina naturally, giving yours a finish like no other.
- Step 1: Invert your Lockstone and spray with your favourite fragrance; watch as the liquid saturates and is then gradually absorbed.
- Step 2: Leave upright for a few minutes – allowing the fragrance to be fully infused into the Lockstone.
- Step 3: Your fragrance will then be locked within the stone and through its micro absorbent structure your scent will be gradually released through contact with the skin
Lockstone emerged from a series of failed attempts at creating a new way of producing wallets; it was throughout this process that we noticed the materials we were working with remained damp – even after the washing and drying process, an occurrence that was to become quite the annoyance.
Yet this frustration would soon turn to curiosity, and we began to ponder just how this natural characteristic could be harnessed for something useful – and with that, our focus was shifted to refining a material to lock in fragrances.
Metal: A perfect partner to the Lockstone
The design development phases were filled with exploration as to how the Lockstone could and should be teamed with other materials; pure metals seemed a natural fit to a project that had, by then, become defined by purity and refined by a focus upon simplicity. Equally, metals provided for a contrast, whilst delivering an uncompromising design that could elegantly withstand the rigours of everyday use.
By tapping into CNC turning we were then able to achieve perfect geometry – ultimately creating the timeless design that you see before you today: a design that goes on to also deliver rigidity and practicality for easy, stylish everyday use.
We're a small team of designers (and Ryan) that strive to develop innovative everyday products in terms of their function, aesthetic and materials.
Kickstarter has been the foundation of our business, starting all the way back in September 2014 with our first campaign for Carbon. Since then, we have launched two more campaigns, Stealth and also our first timepiece.
At the end of the day, we're designers with a passion for innovation, focusing on a minimalist approach to create and develop new products for everyday use. Lockstone is our first foray into the world of jewelry. We wanted to bring our minimalist approach and apply it to a range of jewelry that also pushed the function of jewelry in the everyday. With that, we introduce Lockstone to Kickstarter as the ultimate platform for innovation and development.
We've partnered with Royal Mail in order to fulfil our Kickstarter campaign. We currently ship items all over the world using their services and find them to be extremely reliable.
International backers will all receive a tracking number and link in order to track their item. This will be mailed to you via Kickstarter once we have shipped your item(s).
Using their online system, we can generate our own shipping labels and fulfil even faster than before, getting your pledge to you in even less time.
Risks and challenges
After three highly successful Kickstarter campaigns, we're very much accustomed to the running and fulfilment processes that come with crowdfunding.
We have arrangements in place with Royal Mail as our shipping partner to distribute worldwide, with shipments currently occurring every working day.
Going back to our roots of metal turning, we already have the facilities and suppliers set up ready to go to bring Lockstone to life.
While running our Stealth and watch campaigns in 2015, we still operated our regular day to day business, distributing large numbers of parcels daily. With our new partnership with Royal Mail, we can now generate our own postage labels, cutting down considerably on time and allowing us to fulfil even quicker than before.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
