THE LAUNCH OF THE FIRST PRODUCT FOR THE HOME SIGNED THE BLUE CUP!
That’s right! For some weeks now my desire to create a home accessory has become a reality thanks to the guys at Hiro, the marketplace that is committed to producing and selling projects by independent designers, transforming drawings and 3D files into real objects.
But what created your cup?
An incense holder in the Nordic style that you can buy here today. 🙂
If you have followed the whole story step by step you will know that in reality, it was much more than the simple realization of a wish, but a real involvement of the tazzinosa community that (with polls and votes) helped me and Hiro to decree that – not only is this incense holder a desirable object and it will be produced- but also to choose the last details for the sale, such as his name Moon and the colors for the finish 🙂
Another change suggested by you was the hole in the sphere, inside which a more tubucino was positioned tight to protect the wood and to hold the stick straight, which is why my set photos differ in this small detail from the final product.
But how did the idea come about? Simply from a necessity.
In this great world of design and home decor that already offers everything you could ever want (in terms of functionality, style, colors) there was a small thing I had been looking for for months: a simple and minimal incense holder that you adapt to the Nordic style houses, the ones we love so much.
As much as I looked far and wide, online and offline, everything I found was always in an ethnic style.
I was looking for something BEAUTIFUL and SIMPLE that could be enchanting on coffee table Scandinavian or that furnished the top of cupboards and furniture (like my Ivar from Ikea) but also had a particular function: not a mere ornament but something really useful, especially now that I have found a really fantastic brand of incense (in I turn on at least once every two days!).
And so I decided to create it myself: with a little white clay, I modeled my first prototype and showed it to the guys at Hiro who promptly answered me: it can be done (read Frankenstein Junior SIIH PUOOOH FAREEEEEH).
AFTER SOME EXCHANGES OF EMAILS AND THE SENDING OF THE DEFINITIVE PROJECT (COMPLETE WITH DRAWINGS, IDEAS OF MATERIALS AND MEASUREMENTS) THE CUP INCENSE TAZZINOSO WAS THERE. ON MY IVAR. EXACTLY HOW AND WHERE I HAD IMAGINED IT.
But all this would not have been possible without your help: it was you who voted for it to be produced and you decided that the name among those proposed would be MOON.
You have also decided that there will be two finishes in which the incense holder will be available: the white-gray you see in the picture and a pale green, which is also very plump 🙂
But what is the most important thing and what makes me happy about all this incredible and epic story?
THAT FOR TODAY FOR THE NEXT 10 DAYS MOON WILL BE ON SALE ON HIRO’S WEBSITE!
A very limited edition that works like a presale: only the pieces that will be purchased will be produced.
You must, therefore, take advantage of it if you want a small piece of the blue cup on your coffee table or on your favorite furniture 🙂
And to transport you in the right mood I decided to create a video for this small – but very important for me – object. I wanted to show you my main inspirations: nature, summer, the simplicity of small things.
Hope you like it 🙂
