Planet Pins

Hand-painted solar system stationery & hand cast concrete moons, now funding on kickstarter.

We need to raise £10,921 on kickstarter to give this project the launch it deserves. Our kickstarter backers will be the first to receive these products (June).
Assuming the campaign is a success, we hope to offer Planet Pins and Moon pins via this page as pre-orders from May 16th (for shipping around end of July).

Product Description

Hold a tiny piece of the universe in the palm of your hand with this unique set of planet push pins. Add a bit of outer-space to your home & office space!

The 8 planet shapes are moulded in the UK over german-made, black steel pins, then sent to Tokyo where they are painstakingly brush painted by hand (by us!) and assembled into their serial-numbered, polished-acrylic display cases.

Also available are single Moon pins, lightly “cratered” and cast by hand in concrete by our friends in Taiwan> They are then assembled by us in Tokyo into their display-cases which feature a tiny and super cute flag of the USA, as if pierced into the moons surface in it’s iconic position.
