” Did you ever lost your keys ? That is what happened to me while I was spending the day at the beach, away from everything. At that time, I wondered how I could have them on me all the time… “
– Jérémy Neyrou, CEO of ICARE Technologies
Why a ring ?
The ring is a piece of jewelry that we can wear daily, and use it with only one hand in an intuitive and simple way.
At ICARE Technologies, we are convinced that, in the future, payment and identification will be made using innovating and designed supports. This is why we wanted to include our technology in a signed ring made by a visionary creator, Philippe Starck.
ICARE Technologies is based in Ajaccio, at 4 avenue Mont Thabor, Immeuble Castellani, and also has an office at the Grande Arche de la Défense, thanks to Swave and its Startup booster.
Philippe Starck, world famous creator with multifaceted inventiveness, is always focused on the essential, his vision: that creation, whatever form it takes, must improve the lives of as many people as possible. This philosophy has made him one of the pioneers and central figures of the concept of “democratic design”.
By employing his prolific work across all domains, from everyday products (furniture, a citrus-squeezer, electric bikes, an individual wind turbine), to architecture (hotels, restaurants that aspire to be stimulating places) and naval and spatial engineering (mega yachts, habitation module for private space tourism), he continually pushes the boundaries and requirements of design, becoming one of the most visionary and renowned creators of the international contemporary scene.
Philippe Starck and his wife, Jasmine, spend most of their time on airplanes or in “middles of nowhere”.
“ We wanted to work with Philippe Starck because he is truly a timeless creator and his art are making history. We wish to give Aeklys a real touch of elegance, of genius, the real touch of an artist. This is why we wanted no one but the best to do it. “
– Fabien Raiola, Cofounder of ICARE Technologies
