About this project

Hey guys,

we would like to let you know that we are cancelling the current campaign so we can start preparing new, better and true-to-the-iLoop-and-ourselves campaign. 

We are turning to you all to help us along the way. We will be updating the progress and we would be more than happy to involve you in the process - to hear your thoughts, ideas, comments, … Why? Because you have been here since the beginning. 

 We have chosen 31st December to cancel the campaign for symbolic reasons. Today is the day when old year is saying goodbye leaving us with all the experiences and New Year, just half a day away, will greet us with new opportunities and possibilities. 

 We will be re-launching the campaign in spring time. Giving iLoop such vivid colors we believe spring time is the only proper time for it. Don’t you agree?:) 

A question for you. Have you ever found yourself in any of situations described below?

  • Lying comfy in bed or couch with your phone on the other side of the room and too lazy to stand up too see who is calling or texting you?
  • Having stressful phone conversation and just feeling the need to relieve the stress with with something to squeeze like a maniac countless times?
  • Calling your friend with a video call and finding yourself trying to place phone in an upright position by leaning onto some books, your laptop or anything alike and your phone just did not want to stand up and stay still?
  • Taking a group photo with your phone and realizing that you are always the one missing in that photo? Why? Because you are the one taking it.
  • Working out in the gym and using your phone as stopwatch but every time you want to check your progress you need to stop the routine and walk to the phone to look at it?

You have, haven't you? We sure have:) We believe there are many more similar situations. To solve them all at once we came up with the perfect solution, a gadget we named iLoop.

iLoop is an A’Design Awards winning versatile, minimalistic and multifunctional smartphone holder. Designed and developed by our team at PROVOCO.

In addition, it can also be used as an effective stress reliever during stressful phone call or during moments of intense focus.

It can be used as a hand grip for strengthening your fingers, palms and arms muscles.

Use it at home, in the office, in the gym, at school… Wherever, whenever, however.

How it all started

The idea came to Andrej Stanta, designer and sport fanatic, when he was playing around with some old hand grip his dad had given him as birthday gift. Since he uses video calls a lot he once inserted his phone into the handgrip and that is how the idea of iLoop was born. 

Simplicity, usefulness and minimalism were key points in designing the iLoop - both the product and the brand.    

Throughout this campaign I use the word "We" because even with me being the driving force behind iLoop, I would never be able to do it without the help of my supportive family and talented team (Tjasa Stanta, Bojan Semen,..). We all got involved, invested our time, knowledge and our savings. Why? Because we believed in iLoop.

That EUREKA moment!
That EUREKA moment!

Since everything was new to us it took us a while to bring the iLoop and iLoop brand to the point we felt it was perfect. We've learned a lot during this process - from prototype development, testings, finding partners to produce the product, choosing the best materials, designing the perfect packaging, calculating costs, defining market prices,..

Timeline 

We need your support

Why back us?

We believe iLoop is something that you simply can't live without once you try it. Many who have tried iLoop so far loved it and have found it as amazing and useful as we do. And we are sure you will feel just the same.

Only together we can make it!

We have big ambitions, but are a small studio and only have the capacity to finance modest/sampling production runs. Placing larger order in various colors is beyond our grasp.

That is why we need you. With your help we will be able to order new colors, simplify production process, place a larger order and finally get the  iLoops to you. 

Thank you!
