  • Melbourne, AU (June, 2018) - Orbitkey, a company dedicated to clever organisation is proud to release the long-awaited Ring, Clip, and Strap. After another successful crowdfunding campaign through Kickstarter and Indiegogo, they raised over $420,000 in funding for their third major project which shipped on time to their backers. 

    Great products solve everyday problems, the new collection features three individual products designed to be used independently, or simultaneously interconnected to create an ecosystem. Simplifying the management of your everyday carry essentials. 

    The Orbitkey Ring solves the universally known struggle of keyrings, creating an innovative and effortless experience in attaching and detaching both keys and accessories. The mechanism is both secure and easy to use. Simply unlock with a swift ‘pull and rotate’ 2-step motion, and once you’re done with loading your keys, keep rotating the inner ring until the locking feature drops back into place – limiting its movement. 

    The release of the Orbitkey Ring is supported by 2 other inventions: the Orbitkey Clip, a modern and innovative carabiner, and the Orbitkey Strap, a simple and elegant carry strap.

    All 3 products are designed to work great independently, but even better together. Each one improves the efficiency and accessibility of daily essentials while accommodating for various lifestyles and uses; taking organisation to the next level.

    “From the onset, we wanted to create something that was truly flexible and versatile. Each component from the system is designed to seamlessly work with each other and your belongings. It’s designed to allow you to be more flexible with the things you carry. “

    Charles Ng (Design Director & Co-Founder) 

    Designed and optimised with the user in mind, the team applied a combination of traditional craft and modern processes to step outside of the conventional ways of constructing a ring, carabiner and strap. The result was a high strength stainless enclosure, coupled with a flexible polymer core and full grain leather to give the perfect balance of style, function and durability.

    After the success of the third crowdfunding campaign, the Melbourne-based design company hopes to bring more ideas to the market, continuing to help people organise better.
