"Oh my god, why is it so adorable?" - Portland Pulp

"Put a bird on it. has become Put a plant in it." - Stephen Coles

WHAT IS THE BLOOMBOX? 

The Bloombox is a iPhone/iPod docking station with space for a planter designed to amplify acoustics. With it's simplistic hollow square frame the Bloombox is the perfect combination of function and design, bringing some greenery into your house, office, or anywhere else you might charge your Apple devices.

WHAT IS THE MONEY FOR?

We are raising the money to help create a mother mold to be able to manufacture multiple Bloomboxes. We are working closely with Mudshark Studios in Portland, Oregon to make the ceramic molds and manufacture the Bloomboxes. They are a well-known ceramic manufacturing company that have already helped with a variety of Kickstarter projects. 

HOW IS IT MADE? 

The Bloombox is made out of ceramic molds created at Mudshark Studios. Each Bloombox is painted with a light matte glaze in either white or black. 

The Bloombox was born out of the combination of my three driving passions and my own need for a dock. Design, ceramics and technology (namely Apple products) all culminated together to create a habitable environment and acoustics for iPhone and iPod docks out of one single piece of ceramic. 

The design aesthetics are simple and compliment Apples iPhone & iPod devices. The Bloombox was designed to have enough room to create a functioning environment for most small plants and also amplify the audio from your device by 30 percent.

"Will the Bloombox work with the iPhone 5?"

Yes! The new version of Apple's iPhone will have a smaller USB adapter and work perfectly with our product.
