Who has never wanted to hold the entire solar system in their own hands?! Designer Duncan Shotton has asked himself this question and once again presented a unique work of art that allows you to house a miniature version of the universe in your home. This is not only a decoration, but also has a classical purpose.
The British designer runs a small design studio in Tokyo with his wife Nozomi and has already completed three successful kick-start campaigns. With his products he wants to bring the joy and playfulness of his design/art to everyday products and share them with other people.
The Planet Pins are a complete success on Kickstarter
His current project Planet Pins is made up of the 8 planets that were painted on pinheads by hand. The pins were produced in Germany, the planetary shapes were provided in Great Britain and painted in Tokyo - completely by hand! Pluto fans won't get a taste for it, but the Planet Pins don't think it's a big success. With its current 800 supporters, Duncan Shotton has already raised close to £33,000 in donations.
The latest Kickstarter project by the British designer is currently being offered in an edition limited to 100 pieces and signed. For a contribution of at least 32 pounds you can pre-order the Planet Pins and the matching kit The Moon on Kickstarter.
