Welcome to Locknesters. At our headquarters in Brooklyn, we are making designer toys for the future.
a new kind of toy
locknesters are a new kind of designer toy. They are the result of a fascination with unconventional geometries and a desire to make toys that encourage interaction. They could be thought of as three dimensional jigsaw puzzles, each model can be taken apart and assembled, used as a challenge to friends or a distraction from work. locknesters love to be displayed and are great at livening up a room, we hope you like them.
PRODUCING HIGH QUALITY DESIGNER TOYS IS OUR PASSION. WE TAKE PRIDE IN BOTH DESIGNING AND PRODUCING OUR TOYS, this process helps us to maintain quality control and ensure that the design and production phases are in tune with one another. LOCKNESTERS ARE MANUFACTURED OUT OF A NONTOXIC BIOPLASTIC AND NO CHEMICALS ARE USED DURING THE SURFACE smoothing PROCESS.
Locknesters are produced in our Brooklyn headquarters using a blend of old and new manufacturing techniques. models are designed digitally on the computer before being 3d printed, and then sanded down by hand.
pieces are smoothed through a series of methods that involve sanding, tumbling and buffing. during the smoothing process a model obtains distinct coloration, making each locknester unique. after tumbling, each piece receives a water-based topcoat that seals and protects the smooth finish.
Custom packaging is designed for each model. The packaging protects the toy and hints at what is inside. Locknester packaging is not carbonite, but is a home that can be returned to again and again.
