Chicago-based design studio MINIMAL Inc. has released images of their latest project, the “taktik” iPhone case. The robust case attempts to encapsulate those essential protective details that are often overlooked. A shockproof suspension system enclosed between two anodized aluminium bezels ensures waterproofing, while the option of including a gorilla glass lens further protects the screen. The device’s headphone port is made with aircraft grade anodized aluminum and the case offers a dedicated button for the silence function on the phone that lies within. Minimal is currently seeking funding for “taktik” through a kickstarter program, with an expected production date of mid-august. (via designboom)
