PIPEROID – creativity inspired

guyzer_beanI design and create casual and unique products with a touch of cuteness. The goal is to inspire the creativity buried deep inside everyone as people play around with my product.

What inspired you to go into the craft business, do you still have a day job? Just fell into it naturally, from when I was a kid.

What do you like best, coming up with ideas or executing them? Both. I love the sensation I get when coming up with a very unique  idea, but I also like the process of experimenting and going through  trial and errors in bringing those ideas to a real product I can  physically touch.pneuma_all(2)

What’s the best thing about what you do? Best – using scissors And the worst? Worst – using glue

What are your creative influences? Ukiyo-e and textile/fabric art from Edo-period (1602AD-1868AD) in Japan

What’s the best advice you have been given about your business or craft practices? “What do you want to be remembered for?” by Peter Drucker

tnHow do you stay inspired? By keep questioning the world we live in and not being satisfied with the current world/surroundings.

Anything else you would like to tell us about your business? Any product we as humans create are made of finite resources from  mother Earth. Therefore the value of the product must be worth the  sacrifice we are making in consuming the resource it is made of. On  top of that, ideally it should have a positive impact to the world we live in. That is the kind of product I strive to create.

PIPEROID paper robots was just a start. Check out the following new products I have been working on lately.
