Working with Dutch aesthetic ceramic experts Formatec, we developed highly technical ceramic casing for the Æ+Y. We employed technical innovations that enable the challenging construction methods to achieve the thinness and strong parts the design requires. We also produced a level of polish on the ceramic which surpasses all industry standards.

Shown here is the contrast from how it starts out — its raw state, and its finished state for the Æ+Y — highly durable, scratch-resistant and high gloss.
