Caviar announced the launch of its 1st Halloween collection – “UFO”, dedicated to extraterrestrial life. This exclusive lineup features three custom models of the iPhone 15 Pro/Max, the flagship of the series is incrusted with tiny meteorite fragments containing amino acids from outer space.
Caviar International is a Dubai-based luxury customization brand that redefines elegance and technology through its bespoke creations. The company’s artists have been inspired by H.R. Giger’s concept art to create a custom collection “UFO”.
The centerpiece of the "UFO" collection is the predatory flagship – Alien. A bespoke marvel adorned with a meteorite fragment, containing traces of extraterrestrial life – amino acids used to build proteins encoded in our DNA as well as all life here on Earth.
Caviar used fragments of Murchison meteorite. Murchison contains more than 15 amino acids, some of the basic components of life, have been identified during multiple studies of this meteorite. In January 2020, astronomers reported that Murchison meteorite silicon carbide particles had been determined to be 7 billion years old, 2.5 billion years older than the 4.54 billion years age of the Earth and the Solar System, and the oldest material found on Earth to date.
There is a hypothesis that life exists throughout the Universe, distributed by space dust, meteoroids, asteroids, comets, and planetoids, as well as by spacecraft carrying unintended contamination by microorganisms. It is called panspermia and it is widely used in pop culture. For example, in the film Prometheus (2012) there is an episode showing an alien pouring his DNA into waters of the ancient ocean on planet Earth.
“The origin of life on our planet remains to be one of the most mysterious riddles ever existed. Our team decided it would be the perfect choice for the Halloween collection to embody aliens, stars and spaceship in the custom phone design” – says Ana Al Hosani, Caviar PR Department.
Two other two model: Astral and Starship. Complementing the collection, these custom devices feature the images of a spaceship and the universe. Meteorites from the Moon and Mars, 24K gold, aviation grade titanium, stainless steel – the materials used in the custom series blow the imagination.
