Hoshi your own private star sky


The stars help us dream, think about the dead and our role in a huge world. Unfortunately, we are surrounded by the light of cities recently, and we do not notice the stars anymore. This is due to light pollution, which in 2020 meant that over 68% of Poland's area there is no natural night sky.1

Let's move 150 years into the future. The world is rushing, we do not have time to think, remember it and discover ourselves. Light pollution increased and star watching became
a version premium. HOSHI was created for this, so that people in cities could have
a substitute for their private piece of heaven.



The project consists of crystal balls passed down from generation to generation, which make the user familiar with the loss of a loved one. The second part of the project is a piece of furniture for public space, which, after inserting the ball, lights up the stars of our ancestors using an electromagnetic field.

Hoshi is to make you think about light pollution. When we look at the water surface, we automatically think that it is a reflection, but when we look up we see only light.
The induction hob and water filter are powered by a gradient solar panel, thanks to which we do not generate additional pollution. The water used in the product is rainwater, which is constantly purified.
