The idea for Air Deck was conceived by fellow globetrotters Ursus Negenborn and Rune Kippervik while traveling South East Asia. They love playing cards, but couldn’t really find anything that was quite suited for a minimalist way of traveling. An ideal deck would be sturdy, lightweight, compact and interesting looking. Unable to find anything that matched their criteria, they decided to take matter into their own hands and create the ultimate travel playing cards. This sent them on a great journey, where they visited several of the world’s top manufacturers of premium playing cards to look at the best materials they could provide. In the process of finding the ultimate travel deck material, they tried out over 50 different high end plastic materials. After rigorous testing they finally ended up with a premium ‘casino quality’ PVC with all the properties they want in a travel deck.
