Gr2 sphere is a modern design element with a secret storage inside. It combines machined looks with pure elegance using anodized aluminium, polished brass and copper. Every detail is made to perfection with precision machining.

 

 

Created to store and protect all those precious small items and keep your space beautiful and minimalistic. The goal was to make it look outstanding without any signs of opening. A simple and modern design piece that compliments any desk, table or shelf.  

 

 

SECRET STORAGE: Gr2 has a screw off top that reveals the secret place inside. It is perfect to keep any small valuables or make a luxury gift box. You can store pretty much anything that comes into your mind and fits in the bore. It's machined with precision so the fact that it opens will be secret of yours.

LUXURY GIFT BOX: Unique and beatiful way to present a gift to your loved ones. Comes with black foam to put most exclusive gifts.

LOW CENTER OF GRAVITY: Even whithout the acrylic glass stand Gr2 will stay still on flat surfaces. The copper and brass tips are much heavier than aluminium which makes gravity center lower and prevents sphere from rolling.

CONVERSATION STARTER: While creating our project we met lots of interested people and enjoyed many exciting discussions. Gr2 is certainly a great way to start a conversation. 

 

We all love to make our environment more beautiful and more personalized. Our space is where we feel good. Design elements can be a reflection to our personality or even tell a story about us.

Crafted with precision and perfected to the smallest detail Gr2 is meant to be a statement of your best qualities.

It is unique way to show how different materials can highlight and complement each other. An optical pleasure on your table with a secret inside.

We use two color options for anodized aluminium body and two tip materials. Altogether four design choices are available. You can combine various designs or choose the most suitable for your taste.

CNC Machined: Precisely machined on CNC lathe from solid piece of aluminium, copper and brass. Both parts have a thread to open the sphere. Aluminium body has drilled bore inside to create the storage space. Video shows a part of machining process:

Anodized finish: To get the best looking and most durable surface finish for aluminium we use anodizing. This process strengthens and dyes the metal so the surface is very durabe and the color won't flake off or scratch.

Polished: For copper and brass parts we use polishing. It creates a stunning mirror clear finish which is even more highlighted when combined with anodized aluminium. 

Patina process

Brass and copper are unique metals that will attain beautiful tarnish over the time. It is slow and very interesting process that can be followed day by day. The parts will slowly darken and get their own unique pattern. Whenever you like to reset the first day shiny looks it is super easy done with our polishing kit (felt cloth & polishing paste) -included in rewards. In less then two minutes it is clear as new.

Hi, i am Kristoph Krisjans - designer of Graviton and Gr2 spheres. My biggest passion is to create original and innovative products that can make our environment more enjoyable. 

Together with my two brothers we have started a series of CNC machined spheres with unique design and functionality. We are very grateful to everyone who helped bring the first Graviton sphere to life and hope you will enjoy the Gr2 as much.

When launching a new product there is nothing more important than good relationship with our supporters. We believe It should be more than just a financial transaction. Kickstarter is amazing platform where we can offer our supporters a great price and unique chance to follow whole manufacturing process. 

 

Risks and challenges

Our team is well prepared to ensure the highest quality and fastest delivery time. This is our second project with machined spheres here on Kickstarter. It comes soon after the first one since our CNC manufacturing capacity alows us to do that. We have gone through lot of prototyping processes and made a few test runs for larger batch manufacturing. Though there are always some potential challenges to every Kickstarter campaign that may cause small delays, we are confident about project's fulfillment in time and we promise to keep you updated untill you get your rewards. Our priority is to make every backer satisfied.
