Most of us use just a few cards on a daily basis, barely use cash anymore and store more and more on our mobile phones. Why is it then that we have to carry around that big, clunky, uncomfortable wallet?
It's not surprising seeing people ditching their wallet in favour of simpler alternatives. Sometimes quite radical alternatives like rubber bands or binder clips. Other times, ones like slim leather wallets.
While the rubber band, the binder clip or even the money clip work well, the end result is far from elegant. And as far as slim wallets are concerned, they're fundamentally traditional wallets with just less space.
So you either have to go for style or space.
Re-thinking the wallet
When designing Cardstack, the goal was to re-think the wallet and create a product that would allow to effectively carry just the few cards you need everyday without giving up on style or flexibility.
There is no better way to simplify and slim down a wallet than to just get rid of it altogether. So early on, it became very clear that the wallet itself had to disappear and that the cards should simply become the wallet. That's Cardstack. A simple, yet elegant and stylish, stack of cards.
The back and front aluminum covers, at just 1mm each, take just as much space as a credit card. So no bulk is unnecessarily added. The same goes for the weight: aluminum ensures a robust wallet and keeps the weight incredibly low.
The back and front plates make it easy to slide in or slide out your cards, while preserving the intimacy of your wallet. The silicone band securely holds the cards into place without compromising the aesthetic and the use of silicone ensures the band won't break or wear off prematurely.
Security also became a concern when designing Cardstack. Thanks to the aluminum plates, Cardstack will block any RFID signal and keep your cards secure.
The result is a modern, slim, lightweight and colourful wallet for our modern lifestyle.
