These new products arrived last week.

Made from Glazed Ceramic, the project started with my fascination for city grids, from the strict geometry of New York to the seemingly chaotic Bombay layout. At the time, living abroad and a bit homesick, I decided to use the map of Oslo as a starting point for my Oslo Coasters. I picked 6 different areas in Oslo that represents different memories for me and created these products based on the city grid. The can be used separatly or together.

I produced a batch of these coasters using Alumide but I didn't get the qualitative feel before I used Glazed Ceramics. An important aspect with using ceramics, that caught me by suprise, is that the products get imperfections due to the productions method. Those imperfections, together with the look and feel of the material, was just right for the product.

These products are currently available to buy in my shop at Shapeways.

Let me know what you think Smile

Cool! Thanks for sharing.

Have you tested a slight drop with these to see if they are fragile?

They look like they could be since they are so thin.

No I havn't tried yet.. I need to order new ones first.
I was very worried about the fragility, but I was suprised by how solid they actually feel. Feels like porcelain.

I work here
@andehans city grids are indeed a wonderful inspiration. I'd love to see who can actually identify which city is which. Laughing
