Decadent Minimalist One: A truly minimalist wallet
How we got to Kickstarter:
While I was at Stanford University, I took a Mechanical Engineering class that encouraged students to solve real world problems. I recalled my issues with back pain caused by carrying a thick leather wallet in my back pocket. Carrying my wallet in my front pocket solved this problem, but was thick, bulky and uncomfortable.
I set out to design the ultimate minimalist wallet. I wanted something thin, small and a joy to carry – but also a design that could carry all my essential credit and ID cards. I was not satisfied with other so-called minimalist wallets – the idea of taking a beautifully machined metal wallet and pairing it with elastic straps, velcro or rubber bands was offensive to me. I would also try to avoid using any unnecessary parts, screws, rivets, hinges, magnets or clasps.
filed a patent application for this design in August – so the DM1 is a truly unique design!
Truly Minimalist functionality:
The DM1 is a truly minimalist design – it’s a single piece of aluminum, cut into the ideal shape to positively retain up to 8 identification or credit cards. The design eliminates any unnecessary parts, but securely and beautifully carries and protects your cards.
It does NOT block RFID – so you can use building access cards and contact-less RFID credit cards without removing them from the DM1. The open front and back are ideal for photo ID cards like a drivers license.
