Stylish Case for a Car Key Blind

Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Description:
We are looking for some concept sketches for a key case.

An innovative key case design which can hold a typical car key (attached picture). The case itself should be able to fit on a key ring.

The key should be completely hidden inside the case until the case is opened (by some creative means or mechanism) to reveal the key, either in whole or part – at least, so the user can press the buttons on the key itself.

We are looking for a high-end, upscale design, which combines smooth-functionality with luxury and desirability. A pleasure to look and feel, a pleasure to simply hold in your hand. A status object and a pleasure to use, again & again - perhaps damped - with an extremely desirable finish, perhaps piano black, brushed steel or rose gold ... following an interface design associated with the modern iPhone-types. However all design finishes will be considered.
Wants:
- Ability to be manufactured.
- Ergonomic design
- Offers a good user experience
- Good interface design
- With some approximate sizing, width, length, thickness.
Don't Wants:
A purely theoretical design which is unable to be manufactured.
Additional Information
In summary, we are trying to identify an simple and innovative opening mechanism for the case which will offer an enriched user-experience.

There should be no buttons on the external case.
The design should be able to be operated with a single hand.

PLEASE READ THE DESIGN BRIEF ABOVE - BEFORE SUBMITTING ANY DESIGN.

The case is opened by pressing the steel hook present at the top (to which a key chain can be fit) and is closed by pressing it again, like a click pen mechanism. Key is held tight within the lid, moves along with the lid and can freely move inside main case. Enough tolerance is provided for initial fitting of the key inside the case.
I will submit the design along with mechanism, soon.
Please review and comment.
Thank you.

#17 SwitchBlade Style Key Fob by Decker
This particular contrast is a bit misleading as to exactly what the customer is after here? More and more cars now a days come key-less. Anyway, I have entered what I think is a fun stylish key holder device. The red button you see on the top is two sided. The top button extends the key out and the lower button extend the key back into the holder. The other two smaller buttons would be used as accessory functions. I have only create what I consider is a concept to the dimensions specified. More time and effort has to be place to mechanize the device. See in 3D at the following link using A360.... http://a360.co/2BPstmH.

The design is not a conventional drawer type. Case opens automatically with a simple click with thumb and I believe user feels comfort holding the device in his/her hand. It reveals sufficient space for operating key. Comment your review on the file that I have attached.
I will work on another model if this models seems irrelevant to the requirements.
Thank you.

#32 Stylish Key Holder by MN CAD/CAM Services
Hidden design
I've quickly modeled out my initial idea for a stylish key holder design, per the outlined standards in the contest briefing. Brushed Titanium seems to be a fine choice, both for looks and functionality. After all, I'm sure this is a product that would be tossed quite a bit, calling for a good blend of strength and low weight.
A brass pivot pin would be the fine embellishment that would cast just enough contrast into the piece.
Holding in a closed position could be achieved with a ball detent, or similar simple device.
Thanks

Are you comfortable with that size?

Fox HM Ltd

Fri, 02 Mar 2018 15:08:15 +0000
MN CAD/CAM Services: Yes we had thought of this some time ago, and it remains a solid functional design. However, the issue is thickness - the rectangular BMW key is 13mm thick, which would mean the lower section would be much thicker than the upper section, resulting in asymmetic aesthetics?

Buyer
