4 new products: same shapes, 4 scales, 4 functions
Fingerscapes: For Protection
Deskscapes: For Organization
Plantscapes: For Illumination
Tentscapes: For Habitation
weetu's x4 collection was inspired by Eames "Power of 10", combined with the desire to bring more small scale architecture into the working environment. The first prototypes were designed by hand, as analogue paper forms with no predetermined scale. The groups were then translated digitally where weetu played with multiple scales, deciding on 4 to provide various functions: to be worn on the body (fingerscape), organize a tabletop (deskscape), illuminate an interior environment (plantscape), and to be inhabited (tentscape).
Each piece in the x4 collection is designed to perform autonomously or as part of a community of similar multiples. The groupings can be explored in solid or translucent materials, as well as different material effects. In addition to varying functions, each product line was fabricated differently. “This is the first round of prototypes”, says weetu founder and chief creative officer, Carly Cannell, “the team has worked very hard to explore the best materiality and fabrication processes for each X4 Product. I look forward to a brass set of X1 so I can be vicious and stylish”.
X3 is the newest "Plant-Lamp" in a collection of flat-pack, snap-together, dual-function home accessories.
