Hi all, welcome back to another ClickClack Groupbuy! From one of the studios who we’ve worked with before, Vertex, we’re pleased to present their next project Arc60 – a stylish 60% designed around another Geometry concept as always. We hope you’ll enjoy this as much as we do! Without further ado, we would like to introduce Lolo, Vertex's co-founder, to tell you more about Arc60.
We got the inspiration from the Iris Folding Origami Technique. In Iris Folding, one can create an arc by transforming a triangle. This can be related to the structural lines of the surface drawn in the design modelling.
Less is more. During the design process, we were afraid that the curved elements would be used too frequently on the board, so after finalizing the overall shape, we optimized the curvature, spacing, parameters and some other details of the design, and also circumvented some difficulties in production processes. And like the Angle TKL design philosophy, we chose to leave many of the finishing touches on the inside of the keyboard.
