Age-old healing meets modern tech.


The Zero Degree inhaler is a modern twist on the ancient practice of aromatherapy to revitalize body and mind! Unlike slow absorption or ingestion methods, the design utilizes dry inhalation because it’s the quickest way to deliver stimulants directly to the brain. Its pocket-friendly, compact size also makes it a lot more convenient. With just a simple twist, air is able to enter through openings located at the back of the inhaler & flow past its unique blend of herbal extracts. No matter where you go, all it takes is a few deep breaths for total stress relief of the mind and calming of the body.

The Concrete Beat


The Concretus is the kind of speaker that becomes the topic of conversation, but it isn’t the kind you can carry around showing everyone. The reason? It’s made from concrete. Yes! The concrete used to build massive homes, malls, offices! It may seem to be an unusual choice of material, but its uniqueness lies in that very fact (Concrete isn’t new to the audio world, if you remember). Concrete in itself is a material with imperfections, but it contributes to a larger sense of aesthetics, making each product unique in a way, because each speaker has a different surface finish, different air-bubbles in different places. The controls are made out of metal, standing out like a diamond among the dirt.

On the whole, the Concretus boasts of a clean, yet rough exterior, and a design that is too unusually calming to forget.

Make you Feel on ‘Top’ of the World!


You probably think I’m going to make an Inception reference, but I’m not! Let’s move beyond stating the obvious and talk about the Foreverspin. Our planet Earth spins at 1040 mph, but we don’t feel a thing. We just accept the fact that in 24 hours a massive orb of fire a million miles from us does a round of the sky all around the world, just to be back the next day. The Foreverspin is a spinning top that allows us to tune out the world and bring our attention to the amazing, ever-hypnotic, spinning movement. The machine milled top comes with an exquisite surface finish, and in five material variants. These materials are carefully curated for their spinning abilities. The tops come with a rotation disc that boasts of a brilliant smooth finish, allowing your top to spin for longer. Flip the disc over and you have a groove in which your top can rest comfortably, on display.

The tops come with a serial number and a hologram, after going through rigorous quality tests. They also come with the claim of lasting forever, and to sweeten the deal, also with a lifetime guarantee!
