About this project

Frustration... Failure ... Futility.  

These are the words you might normally associate with a crumpled piece of paper. But take a closer look and you'll start to notice additional characteristics: Complexity, Uniqueness, Unpredictability, Ethereality.

We became fascinated by this juxtaposition, and it's what made us decide to re-imagine the crumpled piece of paper in new ways - ways that accentuate the beauty lying just below the surface.

Skræp aims to give crumpled paper a proud new identity, while still maintaining it's intimation of uselessness.

The Skræp Pendant is the result of our original inspiration. The plains, corners, and crevices of the complex surface result in a stunning interplay between light and shadow. Attached to a chain, the Skræp Pendant will hang from the neck comfortably and gracefully.

 The Skræp Cuff is a bolder expression of the crumpled paper concept. The highly polished precious metal will capture light beautifully with its complex yet elegant geometry. Great care was taken to achieve an ergonomic design, ensuring the cuff will rest comfortably and naturally on your wrist.

A toy version of Skræp is available in stone, plastic, and steel. Fun colors make it great for display. The most affordable version of Skræp!

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.

Skræp transforms the materiality and formality of crumpled scrap paper into a charm/cuff by combining digital modelling and 3D printing.

We designed Skræp using our own custom-built physics engine. By simulating the same forces your hands apply in shaping a piece of paper, we were able to capture the essence of this complex object.

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.

New York City: a center of gravity for cutting-edge 3D printing technology as well as traditional jewelry craftsmanship.

Your Skræp piece is proudly printed here, receiving unparalleled care from the best New York has to offer.

Avant-Garde Premium Collection[25] - Receive BOTH of our A'Design Award Winners (Original Value of $14,200) - A Contrapposto Side Table; and - Any one of our Solid Gold Pendants (14K Rose Gold, 14K White Gold or 18K yellow Gold)

We're a small studio, but we have big ambitions.

Skræp started with a brain storm in December, 2014. We were so excited by the concept that we immediately started working to develop a computer model and prototype, even though we didn't own a 3D printer.

A successful campaign would help us upgrade equipment and access additional resources, allowing us to do even bigger things in the future.

Our team has been voluteering at YMCA OF GREATER BOSTON for years. By donating 2% of our future proceeds to YMCA, we will continue to support the Y for helping low-income adults receive job retraining and achieve their own goals. Below is a message from the Y: 

 

United States: FREE SHIPPING!

Canada: $10. Local taxes may apply.  

Worldwide: $20. Local taxes may apply.

 

LuxMea is a multidisciplinary design studio specializing in innovative concepts & global strategies.

Risks and challenges

A sharp increase in the price of precious metals or a supply shortage would make it more difficult to obtain the raw materials used in our products.

We work with some of the most reliable vendors in the 3D printing industry, ensuring each piece is manufactured to our high standard. However, production and delivery issues are always a risk. In addition, since the polishing process is done by hand by an artisan in New York, care must be taken to ensure the same quality is maintained as production ramps up.
