COLLECTÉ is a collection of exclusive objects that we sell through a crowdfunding campaign during 30 days only – a kind of virtual pop’up store.
Clear: One campaign = one product = one month
No matter the budget, the consumer can get the same product, only its implication changes:
For 5€: You make the full product
You will get assembly instructions of the product in digital version. Then, you can choose to make it with your own tools, in a co-working workshop, alone or together …
More : As you are making the product, you choose the color and finish of your product, so Enjoy !
For 50€: You assemble the product
You will get a nice box including all you need to make the product yourself – materials and instructions.
More : You can say to your friends " I make it my own!"
For 100€ : You just enjoy the product.
You will get the product made by the designers themselves. Each product will be signed, numbered and sent with a certificate of authenticity.
More : You will have a very exclusive version, limited to 20 pieces.
For a first product, we chose to work in the entrance area – a welcoming and introduction space.
To literally illustrate the concept of COLLECTÉ, we wanted to refer to money collecting, so what’s best than a piggy bank!
COLLECTÉ N°01 is piggy bank you can hang on a wall or simply put it on a cupboard. The color part in front allows coins introduction as a common piggy bank but you can also leave a coin in the front available for the small daily expenses - bread, newspaper, coffee …
To pick up the money, add a money note or simply have a look on the saving, you can open the piggy bank by the top roof thanks to a fabric tongue. You can also hang your keys on the perch.
COLLECTÉ N°01 is designed as a shelter of a bird who pick up some brushwood to create its nest, ready to get your small savings for your big project.
ACCENT is a collective created by Tim Defleur & Benjamin Helle - industrial designers - besides their personal and professional works .
ACCENT is a free space of experimentation without constraints and leading to projects on the sidelines - the philosophy is based on a freedom of thinking. The creative process focuses on a new experience for the user, rather than product design.
ACCENT enjoys treating each subject with an atypical angle of attack - mostly a simple observation / insight. In that way, the duo accents some aspects of design: the collective memory, habits, behaviors, theatrical and anecdotal scenario ....
ACCENT is born from the desire not to be taken seriously, the design work as a rewarding extra-activity without trying to intellectualize about it - it's the laughter over a beer on a Friday night!
You got it, COLLECTÉ is not a common crowdfunding campaign, the collected money will be mainly used (60%) for the production of the pieces at a fair price - including the materials, the space and machines, the production.
Another part of the money (24%) would be used to cover the expenses already made and pay our partners such as Kisskissbankbank or Bkra for the sound design of the video.
Finally, 16 % will help us to make the researches and the prototype of the second campaign COLLECTÉ N°02.
Legal notice: Benjamin Helle will get the entire fundraising and will redistribute to the different partners.
And what if the target is reached ?
One contribution = one product
So, the more we get, the more we produce ... simply ;)
