Proceeds From Sales to Fund Humanitarian Aid Efforts; Challenges Other Brands to Adopt Permanent 'Profit for Philanthropy' Model
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Brikk (http://www.brikk.com), design and branding pioneers, today announced the launch of their product line of high-end, pure gold and platinum cases for the iPhone 5. Called the Haven™, the collection launches with three models crafted from gold and one model from platinum for the luxury market. The Haven is available in solid pink gold, yellow gold or platinum and ranges from $11,610-14,235. Each Haven sold will fund one metric ton of rice distributed by various NGOs.
The Haven is handmade by some of the most skilled artisans in the world. As it is made of solid gold or platinum its color and finish does not wear-off as with other plated cases and iPhones on the market. Each gold model features over 75 grams of gold; the platinum model features over 100 grams of platinum. Customized versions with diamonds and other precious stones are also available.
Targeted to the consumer seeking premium, luxury mobile phone accessories, the Haven is available directly from Brikk in Los Angeles or through their website. Additional product rollout in New York, London, Paris and Tokyo will follow.
Brikk's "profit for philanthropy" model funnels proceeds to assist populations around the world suffering from hunger. For each product sold, a specific amount of rice is allocated and distributed to those in need through select NGOs to areas in need such as Somalia and the Sahel. Brikk's dream is simple: for other luxury brands to adopt a permanent "profit for philanthropy" model.
Brikk designs and manufactures couture products and accessories for the technology, lifestyle, and fashion industries. The materials and processes utilized at Brikk are more commonly applied to scientific purposes such as space travel and exploration. Rarely, if ever, have they been used for the consumer market. A percentage of the proceeds from each sale of a Brikk product are directly given to humanitarian aid in the form of rice. A vision of CEO Cyrus Blacksmith, a designer of ruggedized computer systems and hi-tech media installations, Brikk's team consists of elite experts in Industrial Design, Engineering, Physics, Marketing and Distribution. Brikk is headquartered in Los Angeles where all products are manufactured, with offices in Germany.
