Interview with Hadrien Lacharmoise, RHINOSHIELD



Tell us about RhinoShield

Established in 2013, RHINOSHIELD is a device accessories brand with evolution at its heart. The company has evolved over the past decade from startup status, into a world-renowned impact protection accessories brand, pushing ever forwards by developing innovative solutions whilst adhering to a foundational pledge of sustainability.


Evolving Material Technology - Many will find RHINOSHIELD products uniquely appealing due to pioneering work by the company’s material science team. Our iconic ShockSpread™ material has kept evolving with better engineering design and product approach, making it ideal for impact protection.


Driven by Sustainability - Sustainability lives at the heart of RHINOSHIELD. What makes us remarkable is our commitment to mono-material, which means rethinking the way of product design to ensure less material is used to create a case and that they are much easier to be recycled and transformed into a new product, ultimately creating a sustainable ecosystem for the circular economy.


Let You, Be You - At RHINOSHIELD, we know your devices are highly cherished and personal. They’re a window to your world, connecting you with your loved ones, and probably your livelihood too — all the things that make you, YOU. RHINOSHIELD offers designs that reflect your individuality, whether from our well developed licensed catalog or through our customizable DIY platform.


Change Maker Culture - RHINOSHIELD’s philosophy has always been focused on Creative Ingenuity; using game-changing materials and aesthetic designs to make products that fit your world, and reflects the things you care about. As a proud changemaker, RHINOSHIELD pushes ever forward by developing innovative solutions while adhering to a foundational pledge of sustainability.
