Hi Kickstarters!

FACO is a design duo comprised of Kaare Frandsen and Nicolas Aagaard. We have designed a fruit basket, and it turned out to be so much more. 

Chech out our mood book: http://issuu.com/nicolasaagaard/docs/pluk_magazine

Pluk can hold almost anything that its size will allow. Pluk is designed to be suspended from the ceiling. 

It can also be placed on the table with its silicone inlay. 

 The elastic strings make it easy to access and deposit items via Pluk. 

First we made a metal version, and it got 25.000 likes on The Fancy, but it was too expensive and people wanted more colors to choose from. (http://fancy.com/things/260275645/Pick-Fruit-Basket

So now, we have chosen to make two new versions. One in wood and one in plastic, in addition to our metal version: 

The wood version is hand crafted and sanded smooth. A true example of craftsmanship. It is produced in Denmark by Lasse Kristensen who has won the Danish AND Nordic Wood Furniture Championships.

The metal version is thin and simple. The metal is powder coated for protection. We are making one in black and one in white.  

The plastic version is designed so it can be taken apart and put back together. 

We will make the plastic version in a variety of colors:

The elastic string is sailboat grade. So that the metal and plastic versions can be used outside, and even cleaned in the dishwasher. 

3D file:

Whichever version of Pluk you find most appealing, we are sure that you will love it. It can be used in any part of the house; for almost any purpose.

Schedule:

Kaare and myself at FACO have worked on perfecting this design for years. The result are the versions you see in this Kickstarter project. 

Each material is used in a way which respects the opportunities and limitations of that material. ¨

Media, so far :-) :

With your help, this project will be a success, and we will be able to offer this product on a large scale.

All the best
Kaare and Nicolas @ FACO

Risks and challenges

Our challenges would be getting the production right. We have a lot of different materials that need to be worked in the right way. We have a lot of years experience with sourcing and production. So we will be able to overcome these challenges.
