Design by Aurélien Barbry.
By Menu A/S.
The Black Titanium Key Chain is a good example of Aurélien Barbry's approach to design: It's about asking why utility items look like they do - and then using this as a platform for creative development. The Black Titanium Key Chain signals security in the form of a tiny lock. Only here it is refined into an elegant and dynamic accessory. The key ring's "handle" consists of titanium-coated stainless steel, while the actual ring is made of synthetic rubber.
Material(s): Steel with titanium, plastic
Dimensions: 3.5" L
