Material6 was created by Matt Turner and Randy Lively - two Apple enthusiasts with over 30 years of custom fabrication expertise to enhance the already near-perfect iPhone 4 experience. The company was built out of a desire to enhance what they felt was an astounding and functional design that nonetheless lacked a certain warmth and durability that only organic materials can provide. After months of painstaking research, development and execution, we have developed a method for replacing the back panel of your iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S with a hand-crafted and hand-assembled upgrade that provides all the original elements and features of Apple’s design with new benefits.
With the iPhone 4, Apple truly created a masterpiece of design, harkening to the late 50s and early 60s days of Leica cameras and Braun hifis, when the stark simplicity of metal and glass were complemented with natural materials, resulting in a understated and simple beauty of form and function. However, the newest iPhone’s all-glass backplate has the potential to ruin the elegance of Apple’s design through being prone to breakage, scratching and dropping. Replacing this element of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S adds a layer of texture that enhances its beauty while providing durability that glass simply can not match.
Periodically, we will update our offerings to reflect the changing seasons, styles and needs of our customers with new materials that serve to make your favorite piece of technology that much better. Material6 iPhone 4 and 4S backs are comprised of original Apple iPhone 4 or 4S components with only the highest quality woods, furniture - grade finishes and quality that can only be created by hand - one piece at a time.
