With TiKA kits, users can create an unlimited number of lamps and complex structures for their plants. It allows people to unleash their inner designer.

Today, TIKA launches its campaign for an innovative, modular building set that can be used to play, learn, design or build useful and complex items, like lamps, for around the home or office. TiKA kits are modular, flexible and expandable and made of magnetic solid beech wooden sticks, stainless steel balls and a solid wood base or concrete flower pot.

“With TiKA kits, users can create an unlimited number of lamps and complex structures for their plants. It allows people to unleash their inner designer,” said TiKA Creator Florin Cobuz. “Because it’s a modular building kit, all elements are compatible, allowing users to express their imagination by combining our innovative set with their favorite plants and ideas. The flexibility and adaptability of the TiKA system has two main advantages: it can adapt to various personal needs, and it can easily change, so users will never get bored.”

TiKA’s wooden sticks come in five different sizes and three different types: simple, which uses solid wood and magnets; energy conducting, which uses solid wood, wire and magnets; and LED-fitted, which light up. There are four types of bases to choose from: a simple wooden base; a wooden electrical base; a wooden ceiling base, which can be mounted to the ceiling; and a plant pot. To begin designing with a TiKA kit, users start with a base and simply connect TiKA sticks with the metal balls to build mesh-like structures.

The electric base has a touch sensor that acts as a multi-function button, for on or off functionality, and a light dimmer to change different light modes. If a user connects the wrong sticks and creates a short-circuit, the base will warn them with a beeping sound. With this feature, users can easily learn how to make a circuit.

TiKA is currently available for pre-order on Kickstarter starting at $49 for a starter kit. For more information about the campaign or to pre-order, visit pr.go2.fund/tika.

About TIKA lab
The founders of TIKA lab are architects that share a passion and enthusiasm for designing great products. The core idea was created by Florin Cobuz two years ago, and, with Adrian Enache, TiKA was developed, tested and refined in a makerspace during the past year. They believe that a multi-functional and adaptable object has more value in the long run than any present day "disposable" object. For more information about TIKA lab, visit http://tikalab.com/.
