About

COSMOS tells the time with glittering constellations, bringing the night sky into your home.

 

 

Do you remember the last time you enjoyed the milky glow of stars upon the dark night sky? Inspired by a countless sea of stars overhead, we can enjoy quiet moments with loved ones or the peace of contemplation. It is not as easy as it was before to have such an experience —bright city lights and air pollution degrade the visibility of the stars, busy schedules keep us staring at our screens instead of staring at the starry sky.

COSMOS is for people who have a deep appreciation of the vastness of the universe; it creates a romantic and sentimental atmosphere with glittering stars and music in your home, bringing you into the world of the night sky and allowing you to search for your favorite constellation with your loved ones. 

COSMOS provides a full map of the northern hemisphere's constellations — identify the ones you know, or be creative by connecting stars in your imagination.

There are two stars that tell the time. The Big Star tells the hour, and the Small Star tells the minute.

COSMOS can play music, and it is compatible with iPhone, Android, and any other devices via Bluetooth connection.

 

COSMOS is also a perfect ambient lamp. It creates beautiful glittering star lights in any environment, and the brightness of light can be adjusted to your preference. 

COSMOS not only goes well by your bedside, it also fits on your desk, shelves, or in your kitchen! 

 

 

 

 

I believe that these three forms are the perfect combination, because the movement of the stars represent time and music creates a romantic mood. I decided to design a product that conveys these three languages into a single, minimal form.

  

 

COSMOS was carefully designed to fit every component inside, and the design has been tested through prototyping by the manufacturer for mass production.

Risks and challenges

I have partnered with an experienced manufacturing team to coordinate and produce the COSMOS. While I am confident that our team will ship a great product to our backers on time, the unexpected is always possible; Some aspects of the manufacturing process may take longer than initially projected, and revisions may be required. If there are delays for any reason, I will be fully transparent about it through updates on Kickstarter.
