We are glad to present Calamaio, our first inspirational tool, designed to swing and rotate with gentle relentless motion on your desk, becoming a source of inspiration and relax in the moment of necessity. The motion of Calamaio varies according to the object hosted, with always new and intriguing features.
The research for the appropriate materials represented one of the most important part of the project; we wanted to develop two opposite versions, light and dark, with capturing textures and colors, and what we found fitted perfect to our need : Zebrano and Wengè wood, the first one with a main light brown color and dark remarked stripes going all through the wood. The second one with a beautiful dark brown main color, with even darker insightful stripes.
The combined textures and motions create a perfect inspirational tool for those moments when the right answer for an email or the solution for a problem is escaping our mind, blocking our workflow on that issue that seems unsolvable. Indeed the moment when you need to stop and seek for inspiration in your environment : this is what Calamaio was created for, focus on its texture and motion and free your thoughts.
Simple shapes, lines and curves, mathematical ratios, compose our Calamaio, together with noble materials, for the most insightful inspirational tool you can have on your desk.
Designed and produced entirely in Italy.
Due to minimum quantity requirements, we would like to introduce the second dimension of our tools, Calamaio S, only if we reach a budget of 10.000 €. Calamaio S is the smaller version dedicated to pencils and lighter objects, available both materials, perfect to be combined with the bigger version to compose a calamaio family on your desk.

Risks and challenges
The main challenge in this project is to create this desk object with high quality materials and very high precision processing facing the minimum quantity requirements of specialized companies. We managed to find very professional collaborators, all based in Italy, but now we need your support to reach the MOQ of the components and deliver this amazing inspirational tool to everyone.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
