CLASSY CARRIER
FOR JASMINE CHOI’S FLUTE

From idea to implementation

JASMINE CHOI, THE INTERNATIONAL EXPERT

COMPLETION

From the idea to the comple­tion of the current version required serious invest­ment and several proto­types. Many of the parts needed, such as the locks, hinges and other small parts, were developed and manufac­tured by hand at the KALB factory. The result is craft­s­manship of excep­tional quality.

SKILLED CRAFTSMANSHIP AND THE SPIRIT OF INNOVATION

Elmar Kalb unites these two values in his work like no other. He strives constantly not only to fulfil the requi­re­ments but to exceed them. Just an idea to begin with, a remar­kable, unique piece is formed after count­less hours of work. It is a perfect reflec­tion of Jasmine Choi’s enthu­siasm.

INGENIOUS USE OF MATERIALS

Each element is examined and designed in such a way that it saves weight and guaran­tees maximum stabi­lity. Elmar Kalb has worked hard to gain this knowledge over many years, and in doing so has accumu­lated a wealth of unique exper­tise. Even the small mecha­nical parts for the locks and hinges have been speci­ally developed for the case.

GLOBAL NOVELTY FROM AUSTRIA EVOLUTIONISES THE WORLD OF MUSIC

Anyone with an eye for the aesthetic will immedia­tely be drawn to this exqui­site case. But what really makes it special is on the inside: a one-of-a-kind mecha­nism that has never existed quite like this before, proudly “Made in Austria”. When Jasmine places her precious flute into the case, she turns a little wheel that snugly fits the holding device to the flute milli­metre by milli­metre, until it fits the instrument’s length perfectly. The points with which the delicate instru­ment comes into contact are clad with soft foam and are by no means chosen at random, but are rather the result of careful obser­va­tion on the part of the devel­oper. When Jasmine takes her flute out again, the case helps her. The intel­li­gent mecha­nism supports her, leaving space precisely where she needs it to remove the flute.

INDIVIDUAL DESIGN, SPECIAL TECHNICAL SOLUTIONS

Custo­mised produc­tion, utmost quality, sustai­na­bi­lity, relia­bi­lity and friendship; this is what the KALB brand stands for. Jasmine Choi and many inter­na­tional stars are already satis­fied friends (custo­mers) of the high-end manufac­turer. You too can design your indivi­dual luxury case for your valuable instru­ment together with specia­list KALB. We look forward to hearing from you.

JASMINE CHOI

Jasmine has always used a conven­tional instru­ment case for her flute. This case is quite unwieldy, since it is rather bulky and heavy. What is more, it is not adapted speci­fi­cally to her flute, meaning that the flute may move around during trans­port. Since Jasmine is frequently on the move, it was her dream to obtain a perfect, indivi­dual case for her flute, one that would be shorter and lighter than those avail­able on the market. With a properly fitting flute case, she would save herself the extra luggage and could take her flute with her in practically any bag – whether in her rucksack when travel­ling, on her way to rehear­sals, or in her handbag to concerts.
After 12 months of develop­ment, Elmar Kalb came up with a solution that made Jasmine’s dream a reality. This required count­less hours of work, a great deal of experi­ence and consi­derable craft skills. She had waited her whole life for this.

THE PERFECT CASE FOR HER FLUTE:

  • perfect size – indivi­dually adapted to the flute, not one milli­metre larger than necessary (4 cm shorter than the previously used case).
  • a light­weight – with the help of an ingenious combi­na­tion of materials and experi­ence, a weight of just 540 g was achieved (standard weight of a case: 850 g).
  • perfect protec­tion – no more jolting or jiggling. The interior of the case is indivi­dually adapted to the flute, meaning it is nestled perfectly in place and can no longer move about.
  • emotional appearance – the design promises simple elegance and clearly stands out from other instru­ment cases. The feel of the case is an experi­ence in and of itself, since its look gives away nothing about just how light­weight it is, and the perfect craft­s­manship is evident to the touch.
