hintlab wants users to have fun with their jewellery, and transform it day after day according to their mood
hintlab‘s Playful&Precious rings collection give users the chance to reinvent their jewellery day after day, customising it to their outfit. each handmade to order piece comes with its own set which can be specified by the customer. the jewellery is available in four different finishes: bronze, brass, sterling silver and gold. the pieces, which feature studs perfectly shaped to fit compatible LEGO pieces, are manufactured using 3D printing as well as traditional jewellery casting methods
any genuine LEGO brick perfectly fits the rings
thomas and allie are behind hint lab, two designers based in france with a love of creating little moments of joy. after spending several years working in Shanghai, China, the pair chose to come back to what design truly means for them: empowering and delighting users with unexpected objects and experiences.
