Plicopá

This is our great opportunity to get you to know a new friend for your iPad.

It’s called Plicopá.
Plicopá is both a case and a support, entirely made of light cardboard.

We say it’s a friend, because it protects your iPad from any collision and supports it in a stable and handy way whenever you read, write, chat…and so on.

Plicopá is very easy, efficient and eco-friendly. Despite other cases, Plicopá never hides your iPad’s design, instead it emphasizes it. While in use, your iPad’s perfectly visible in all its beauty, whereas when you put it away, a beautiful totally personalized cover safeguards it.

Plicopá has bloomed from a very simple and functional design idea, where research for less polluting materials goes hand in hand with attention for aesthetics. Both during the production phase and in the disposal one, Plicopá is 100% recycable.

Though sustainability is not the only reason to chose Plicopá. The cover graphic is its strong point: in this first phase we have included 60 illustrations made by artists and designers, among which you can chose your favorite one. But it’s just the beginning. If you support our project, we’ll give many others the opportunity to create a unique artwork for Plicopá.

Plicopá’s artwork can be even more personalized: thanks to our new app. PlicopAPP allows you to create your own favorite illustration and get it right at home.

How did the project start?

It’s an idea by Gustavo Arguello.

“The idea of Plicopá started in june 2012 when I bought my iPad and decided to create a cardboard case. As I go crazy about paper-techniques and origami, I studied a way to turn a simple case into something more, as I needed to support my device while reading, writing, chatting and so on. That’s how I developed the first prototypes and within a few months I reached thed final model.”

Then, together with Carla, I decide to make a step forward and to plan everything in a more efficient and eco-friendly way. Carla is an expert of packaging and materials, therefore we searched for suppliers and more sustainable materials solutions.

At this point we shared the idea with some or our most beloved friends, who supported us from the start and contributed to the project by creating beautiful illustrations”.
