451 Lighter is a lighter made of laser cut layers of anodized aluminum and copper. The lighter is designed to develop a patina over time and to become a personal belonging, as opposed to a mass produced object. 
The process was a rich learning experience since it taught me to deal with what is achievable when under specific time and economic constrains and adapt my design accordingly.
The following images include some prototypes from the process, some renders made along the way as well as some formal research sketches.
