Rugged Case with Protective Patterned Back

Drop protection and "rugged" designs are desired by many smartphone users. As we began designs for the iPhone X, we studied how we might best protect this new phone while keeping the form minimal and stylish. The patterned back of this case uses triangles to direct the energy flow away from a single point of impact, and gives a complementary aesthetic to the device.
This design also comes in a non-patterned version which is slimmer and shows the entire back of the phone.
The iPhone has one major break point, where the glass meets the metal body. When dropped on this edge, the screen will often shatter and require replacement. We studied this and created a design solution that prevents the forces of impact from hitting this area, which means the phone stays protected when dropped.
This patent pending design brings rugged protection to a slim and sleek outer form.
