poking a sturdy robotic finger in the face of conformity is ‘lady killer vol.1’, an unconventional jewelry box by atelier ted noten in collaboration with laikingland. mechanically complex but unassuming, the object is modeled after noten’s 2004 exhibition ‘unstaged’ where a set of full sized industrial robots guarded a safe possessing a single precious ring.

contained within a transparent case, the miniature robot is activated by the push of a button, its single prosthetic rising and rotating to graciously offer a golden gun-shaped ring. extending to eye-level, the machine presents the band – topped with a .50 carat diamond and hidden 2mm black diamond – and waits for the woman to accept. 

made using the latest 3D technologies, the mechanically operated arm is a limited edition piece available come october, 2011.
