The Codex project takes inspiration from the Cryptex
, invented by Dan Brown in his bestseller “The Da Vinci Code” and attributed by the writer to Leonardo da Vinci.
The name Cryptex, born from the union of “cryptology” and “codex”, is an imaginary device that inside the book conceals informations, reachable by guessing the correct sequence of letters among those present on the rotating disks, just as for Codex.
Codex is a coffer able to enclose an object, preserving it as a precious treasure, far from the eyes; an iconic product that completes a design desk, giving it an elegant and mysterious character.
