Study for an OP-1 modular stand

Study for an OP-1 modular stand

Ryoichi (aka STEEEZO) is a great performer from Tokyo. We started collaborating with STEEEZO earlier this year, by making two custom-engraved KOLIBRI for his 4 TE OP-1 synths. Since his synths family is rapidly expanding, we have started a new project together, a modular rack stand for 5 or more OP-1, which we are going to share step by step on our Blog. Co-designing at such a distance, having never met in person before, has been very much fun so far (Ryoichi:“I like your sketch for the stand, it looks like a lunchbox!” me: “mmm…how do they make lunch boxes...

Heavy hitters, we’ve got your back!

Or how we became more antiskid than Spiderman himself… We’ve been looking for an antiskid solution for you heavy hitters, or for those who love to play their synths on a glass surface. You know that Cremacaffè is concerned with sustainable design – based on the principle “what goes around, comes around” – therefore we resisted using any silicones or paint. Now that we are in Sicily, and we have access to loads of dismissed household items at home, we found our perfect antiskid match: old bike tires! Elisa’s dad made it in million pieces (you’ll love the video) and...

Social experiments with MOVING

Social experiments with MOVING

I’ll spare you the details of our survey and the amazing psychological techniques people enact, when they want to get hold of your stuff, and get to the conclusions: what you want to keep with you, when you are moving to the other end of the world, is only the beautiful things, those that you really need. Possibly, those things should be light enough to make your travelling happier, too. This said, I still feel deeply sorry for poor Suman of Facebook, who wanted to buy from me a fan in the middle of the Finnish winter, and instead is...
