One of the new collection that caught our attention is Luxefoil‘s innovative nanoscale metals. The world’s thinnest precious metals are now available in extraordinary hues.
Imagine a watch or piece of jewelry with an innovative design that includes metals so precise that NASA uses them in satellites. Or, an accessory adorned with metals in remarkable hues that are 500 times thinner than a human hair. These are just a few of the cutting-edge innovations LuxeFoil will debut this month at BASELWORLD.
Luxel, the parent company, has played an important role as a supplier to companies in the aerospace industry for over 35 years. Their high quality materials are painstakingly crafted from more than seventy different metals, compounds, and organics. They have the strength to withstand spacecraft launch and extreme pressure differentials while still maintaining their integrity. The result is also something quite beautiful, resulting in the spinoff of their new business unit, LuxeFoil.
LuxeFoil’s patent-pending, proprietary fabrication process delivers extremely thin and lightweight metals that can be wrought into limitless design possibilities. Their launch into the luxury timepiece and jewelry market as a materials supplier sets the stage for a new era in product development.
