Fonderie47 envisions a prosperous Africa free from the fear of assault rifles. To this end they melt down illegal AK47s and transform the steel into jewelry. Their profits fund programs that continue to remove illegal assault rifles from Africa.
I worked closely with Peter Thum and John Zapolski, CEO and Cofounder, to design this jewelry box for their first product line: a pair of cufflinks designed by Roland Iten. Each pair sold removes 100 guns from the field.
The hidden drawer mimics the AK47s ammo magazine when extended from the box.
