Tip Top was inspired by objects which use simple mechanics and crafted materials to bring joy to everyday tasks.

Tip Top adapts to the work space by tipping down when in use, presenting the objects upwards. By tipping back up, objects are retracted within.

Cylinder is inspired by minimalist living by storing belongings and then presenting them when pulled upwards.

Cylinder evokes a minimal form with subtle lip detail to entice users to see what is beneath. The interaction with Cylinder creates a joyful experience while remaining a functional stationary item.

Fence was conceived due to the popularized shift into physical photos and the lack of dynamic products which accommodates them. Bridging joy and personalization, memories can be shared uniquely.

Fence adapts to various forms of media by clamping memories between magnet and sheet metal. Users can also bend the base to adapt to their personal space.
