A customizable successor for the legendary 1934 Kaba Star

Our task was to redesign the widely used Kaba Star, a key developed in 1934. We maintained its geometrical form, but added plastic clips to both sides. The clips can be exchanged to create a colour coding system. The plastic clip on the front is manufactured in two-component injection moulding to preserve the Kaba logo for the entire duration of the key’s operating life.
