Stem-Mounted iPhone Case

2016

A partner project aimed to develop vacuum forming skills. We created a fully functional, minimalist bike mounted phone case in two days.

Concepting

We developed a form to be milled and then vacuum formed using styrene that would fit a standard bike stem. We built in tabs on the underside where we wanted reliefs to be able to take the vacuum formed case off the mold. 

Process

Once the mold was milled and vacuum formed, we had to carefully remove the case from the mold and cut out reliefs for the buttons of the phone.

Final Form

It took several attempts to remove the case cleanly.
