Introducing the Collectionnées

Les Collectionnées sont des structures qui se métamorphosent en sculptures lorsqu'on les remplit de pièces de monnaie. Elles changent notre vision de la monnaie en lui donnant une valeur personnelle forte. Ne laissez plus vos pièces s'égarer dans des pots, construisez votre propre sculpture en sachant ce que vous obtiendrez: 100, 20 ou 5 Euros. Et vous récolterez bien plus!

The Collectionnées are structures that transform into sculptures when filled with coins. They twist our vision of coins by giving them a personal value. Go beyond dropping them, build your own sculpture, knowing what you will get at the end of your journey: 100, 20, or 5 Euros (or Pounds for the UK Edition). And you will find much more!

Profitez de ce challenge chez vous, ou organisez des collectes caritatives publiques! Une fois complétées, vous pouvez les conserver pour leur qualité décorative ou bien les vider.... pour tout recommencer. Ce jeu n'a pas de limite, comme les centimes que nous avons au fond de nos poches.

Enjoy this challenge at home, organise playful fundraisings for charities in public events! Once completed, you can keep them as decorative pieces or empty them to start over… The game never ends, nor does the coin flow in our hands. 

Je suis Pierre Ospina, jeune designer français formé à Londres. Les Collectionnées incarnent ma volonté de créer une interaction et expérience personnelle entre l'objet et son public. Je présenterai pour la première fois les Collectionnées au public lors de l'exposition de Talents Émergents sur now! le Off pendant la Paris Design Week, et serai ravi de vous y retrouver! (l'entrée est libre)

I am Pierre Ospina, young French designer trained in London, and the Collectionnées embody my drive to create a personal experience and interaction between the object and its public. I am presenting for the first time the Collectionnées during the Paris Design Week, at now! le Off emerging talents show, where I would be very happy to meet you! (entry is free!!)

A cool experience  

Entrez dans une expérience qui transformera votre vision de la petite monnaie. C'est un challenge à relever! Les pièces autrefois perdues aux détour de bols et trottoirs gagneront une dimension émotionnelle et personnelle allant au delà de leur valeur nominale. Elles deviendront VOS pièces, et chacune d'elles racontera votre histoire. Remplir une Collectionnée vous emmènera vers une autre perception des valeurs.

Get into a daily experience which will twist how you see small change. It is a challenge that you have to fulfill. The coins in your pockets, lying around on shelf or down the pavement, will gain a personal and emotional meaning going beyond their face value. They will become YOUR coins, and each one of them will tell a story, your story. Using a Collectionnée will bring you to another perception of values.

How it’s made / Quality of the product

Ces structures aux allures d'amphores sont en acrylique transparent 100% recyclable. Les composants sont découpés à plat au laser, puis assemblés à la main. Une goutte de dichlo sur chaque jointure soude le tout, rendant l'objet résistant et durable. Vous pouvez aisément la déplacer pleine à l'aide de sa poignée.

These structures resembling containers are made of recyclable clear cast acrylic. The parts are simply cut flat using laser, and then assembled by hand. A dichlo drop on each joint bonds it all together making it a resistant quality product. You can easily and safely lift the objet with the handle when it is all filled, and move it around.

 The Collectionnées, designed at first for Charities 

Les Collectionnées ont été pensées en premier lieu pour créer un lien physique entre les associations caritatives et leurs donateurs. Dans un monde d'échanges monétaires dématérialisés, les Collectionnées y réintroduisent de la transparence. Elles fédèrent les efforts du public autour d'une construction collective, une cause plus grande que la somme de ses parties.

The Collectionnées were thought to be a physical fundraising link between the donators and the charities. Living a time where money travels as digital transfers to unknown beneficiaries, the Collectionnées bring back some transparency in money flows. They federate people's efforts into a collective construction, a greater cause.

Why do I turn to Kickstarter ? 

Les prototypes sont achevés et testés, et les collaborateurs de la production prêts à avancer. J'ai aujourd'hui besoin de votre aide pour réaliser la première série de Collectionnées. Vous pouvez participer à cette toute première mise sur le marché en commandant en avant-première un ou plusieurs modèles de Collectionnées ou en contribuant aux autres récompenses. Chacune de ces récompenses sera réalisée à la main par mes soins si la campagne Kickstarter est un succès. Elles seront livrées en Novembre, à temps pour Noël!

The prototypes are finished and tested, the collaborators for production lined up. I now need your support in order to raise funds for the first production run of the Collectionnées. You can help me make The Collectionnées a reality by pre-ordering a model or by pledging for one of the other rewards. Every reward will be handmade by myself when the Kickstarer campaign succeeds and will be sent over to you in November this year. Perfectly in time for Christmas gifts!

 Kickstarter Limited Edition 

En édition limitée pour Kickstarter, je propose une édition spéciale: les objets seront fournis avec une base ronde en acrylique transparent gravée d'un message personnalisable.

ex.: "100____Euros pour_____+votre message, by PierreOspina."

For a limited number of contributors, I offer a limited edition for each model. This special edition will include a base, signed, along with a personalised message of your choice:

ie.: “100____Euros/Pounds for____ + your message, by Pierre Ospina." 

Next currency, the US Dollar

I believe in this next Collectionnées for quarter, dime and nickel! 

Please back and share the US special reward and support me to make it worldwide. As a reward I will send you an special postcard of the Collectionnées, signed and numbered, and will keep you up to date with the developments of the US Dollar version. Become a founding member!  

Shipping in Europe 

Les frais de livraison en France métropolitaine sont inclus dans les récompenses!

Every Euro model can be shipped anywhere in the Euro Zone. Shipping costs to France are included in the reward. For UK and international shipping additional fees will apply.

Risks and challenges

After the campaign is successful, I will order from my manufacturing collaborators the first batch of Collectionnées. Their material stock is good, as acrylic in 3mm being a very common and widespread material.

You will be notified of the start of assembly as soon as the parts are recieved at my studio. If any delays are coming from the laser cutting, I will have to either wait if the delay is short, or to source from another manufacturer. Many companies can produce these parts.

Then the manual assembly will start, the only risk there is for me to be way overfunded! But if that happens, as soon as the 100% are reached I will start the whole fabrication process to get ahead with sending out the rewards.

The objects are packaged in strong cardboards tubes, making them well protected during the shipping. If any drama should happen while being delivered, I will resend you your reward after insurance to the shipper is claimed.

Overall, we are on a safe line!

Thank you again for sharing and backing,

Pierre Ospina
