Screw U - phannatiq launches 3D printed necklace in support of Southall Black Sisters
phannatiq's new Screw U necklace is a simple, symbolic visual joke. It was designed in response to demand for a pendant similar to the one sported by Holtzmann in the recent Ghostbusters reboot.
The necklace launches on 25 November, at Lights of Soho, with a campaign fronted by Munroe Bergdorf.
Screw U is the first and only phannatiq product to draw outside inspiration, so designer Anna Skodbo decided to do something very different with it:
"Because Screw U follows on from someone else's original design, I decided that the profits would go to charity. I cast around for someone suitable and found Southall Black Sisters. They go all-out to tackle domestic and gender violence, both locally and nationally. Basically, they kick ass."
80% of the profits from every Screw U necklace go to Southall Black Sisters. As will 10% on all phannatiq clothes sales at the 25 November launch event.
Screw U costs £20 and is available on the night or from shop.phannatiq.com in four colours: black, grey, orange or colour-change green/yellow PLA. The necklace is custom 3D printed in Walthamstow, based on original by thingiverse.com/speakboylese which is licensed under the Creative Commons - Attribution licence. Modified by 3Dmigos.net
25 November, 6pm till close, at Lights of Soho, 35 Brewer Street W1F 0RX. Munroe Bergdorf, the face of the Screw U necklace launch, will be attending.
