Card Gear is our monthly feature dedicated to discovering new inventory, setup and accessories used everyday by card designers, cardists, magicians and collectors. The concept originated from the popular social media site, Instagram: #passthepockets. Whenever one of these hashtags come up on the social news feed, there's always something new to discover, no matter who that person is.
For this month, we have the everyday gear of Lorenzo Gaggiotti, founder of Stockholm17 and designer behind Requiem, Heretic, No. 17 and the beautiful Le Chat Rouge. Lorenzo began his journey in the playing cards industry late 2013 with Requiem Playing cards. Since then, he has become a prominent name within the industry, releasing three other playing card series to-date. His next deck will be a collaboration with Swedish Magician, Caroline Ravn for RAVN Playing Cards in 2016. Lorenzo's gear:
+ Soft rubber
+ 0.5mm mechanical pencil with 2B lead (for sketching and details)
+ double pencil red/black (for quick sketching)
+ business card, face
+ business cards, backs
+ Ravn Playing Cards Prototype (for testing)
+ Iphone 5s black, with custom No.17 Crown Edition skin
+ various keys with Sterling Silver Ace of Spades as keychain
+ Wallet (with a couple of cards needed daily)
