Native Union: A Sophisticated Perspective on Technology

June 27, 2016

On my search for better iphone accessories, I came across Native Union. I have lost count of how many cables and case I have purchased from Apple, without ever being satisfied by their quality. Native Union combines the finest materials with practical and sleek designs. My workspace as never looked more sophisticated.

The Dock Lighting

The Dock Lightning’ for iPhone sits now on my desk or nightstand. Its lightweight makes it easy to carry from one room to the other, and its installation doesn’t take more than 2 seconds. The detailed cut of aluminium -a slice of aircraft grade- keep the phone standing, while the light-weight silicone base secures the phone. Both allow me to comfortably use my phone while it recharges.

The Real Marble Case

Being an architecture student, I am obsessed by textures, materials…and marble. You can imagine my reaction when I found out about the first real marble iphone case. I have been using it for a couple of weeks and it looks as great as it did on the first day. I combine it with the belt cable and dock lighting. My white marble case generates a lot of attention and question. YES: it is real marble! Normally, marble is used to make heavy products but Native Union crafted a cool 0.3mm slice from an ancient stone.

“CLIC Marble reimagines one of the most revered natural materials in history, transforming a raw block of marble into a remarkably thin slice.” Fabien Nauroy, Native Union’s Head of Design

Marble is a solid material but it is also of a soft and porous nature which make it vulnerable. Clean your case with warm water and wipe it with a soft cloth. You need to take care of it to maintain its lustre. Never use any abrasives on it, which will dull the surface of the marble.

Finally. A tangle free cable. What I love most about it: I get to charge my phone in my handbag with my portable charger without having 4 feet of  cable hanging between my purse and my phone. If you see the cable: it is stylish anyway with it’s leather belt that makes it adjustable. The Belt Cable is available in two colors: black and white stripes and nautica.
