Time is the very core of the Kintsugi Ceremony Kit - the main objective in its design process was to create an experience-based product, which would stimulate product longevity. The Kintsugi Kit is a wedding present and its "ceremony" is a crossover between the German wedding tradition, Polterabend, where dishes are smashed for good luck and Kintsugi, the Japanese art of joining broken ceramics with gold. The couple would smash the plate according to the tradition and then collaboratively reassemble it using the Kintsugi Kit, creating a unique product and ultimately crafting a memory, which will give the final product a special meaning and ultimately achieve longevity.
