First and foremost, TiKA is a modular creation kit suited to build an unlimited number of amazing structures, such as lamps, holders for your plants or just jaw-dropping design objects for your apartment, office or anything in between.
TiKA's modular system opens a world of possibilities through its five different sized wooden building sticks and small magnetic metal balls that act as connectors with flexible joints. You can also choose from 3 different, but connectable, bases to build upon.
With TiKA, the possibilities are endless when it comes to what you can create. Just look at some of these awesome designs below:

We tested building almost everything we could think of with TiKA just to test it as best we could. We found that using magnetic balls and sticks allows for maximum flexibility when building or expanding on your designs. You can have more than one stick magnetized to one of the metal balls and the varying lengths of wooden sticks let you create the unique and exciting shapes!
We found that building with others was the best way to make the most inventive creations. Invite your friends over to play, learn and create!
Building with TiKA is easy!
1. Start with a base
(see the base options above in How does TiKA work section)
2. Begin to simply connect the TiKA sticks with the metal balls to build mesh like structures
3. Display your creations around your home!
You also have the option to create a circuit with the help of the electric base, electricity conducting TiKA sticks and the LED fitted sticks. The structures you build are brought to life through light!
With the flower pot base, you can combine your work of art with a plant and build a veritable home for them.
You also have the opportunity to combine different kits and incorporate light with your plants. Just put your pot on the base!
And if that's not enough, you can even connect multiple structures and flower pots to create a humongous design if that's your thing.
Started by Florin and Adrian, TiKA's team continues to grow, and as we head forward we believe in growing further.
As we tested TiKA with our friends, family, and colleagues, each person added a new way to build with them! We rely greatly on each and every one of you that wants to build, create, contribute, and share your designs with us.
We're confident that there are no limits on what you can build with TiKA!
We believe in TiKA's potential and in the people that admire and fund projects like ours. We also believe in the values of the Kickstarter community and supporters like you.
If you back us we will be able to fund the mass production of TiKA's. Every dollar counts towards helping TiKA become a reality!
Risks and challenges
There are always certain risks that can arise at any moment during a project like this. That being said, we’re confident in our ability to produce and have taken all the necessary measures. We have a highly qualified team of engineers and designers and have partnered with leading manufacturing and fulfillment companies around the world.
We are aware of some possible delays in the delivery schedule that might arise because of these key issues:
- the complexity of the concrete flowerpot mold
- the optimizing of the LED-fitted stick assembly
- certification approval for commercialization by institutions in different countries, for custom elements within TiKA kits.
Don’t worry! we’re completely prepared to bring TIKA to you and we have the manpower to make it happen, but if anything comes up along the way, you’ll be the first to know!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
