If you’d like your mobile device to reflect the unique celebration of the Year of the Rooster, Tech21 has released its Evo Elite Chinese New Year Edition case for the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Designed in partnership with Chinese pop artist Jacky Tsai, the new case combines traditional elements of folk paintings with a modern pop art style in celebration of Chinese New Year. Tsai is best known for creating Alexander McQueen’s iconic floral skull image in the Spring/Summer 2008 Menswear collection,
This limited edition case uses a unique, 4-layer 3D printing technique to apply a highly durable finish to the case and features 2 metre drop protection.
“I wanted my new Chinese pop artwork to evoke feelings of happiness, warmth and peace associated with a New Year,” Tsai said.
“The ‘Lucky Kid’ originates from the ‘Golden Boy’ in the Buddhist story of ‘The Goddess of Mercy’ and is a symbol of luck and wealth in Chinese folk custom. As a secondary symbol, the chickens subtly imply the ‘Year of the Rooster.’ And rather than just using a rooster, the newborn chicks symbolise energy, vitality, and family harmony.”
When creating the Evo Elite Chinese New Year Edition, tech21 worked to design a product that offers market-leading impact protection. Each case features FlexShock, an ultra-efficient impact absorbing material designed to dissipate impact force. The case has been rigorously tested to ensure perfect compatibility with the Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, guaranteeing a perfect fit, no interruption to signal quality and no interference to Wi-Fi, mobile networks, Bluetooth syncing or features such as Apple Pay. Core functionality, including the camera, acoustics and sensors (such as Touch ID) will work the same with the case on or off.
