Kikkerland’s Moire Coasters Review

Many of the best ideas, songs and pieces of art of this world were thought while their developers and creators were just gaping and wondering. Many times those moments are accompanied with a drink that helps to find the inspiration. The designer David Jost combined creative thinking and drinking, the result is the Moire Coaster.

He created the Moire Coasters as self contained artworks that help to find ideas to those introspective drinkers. The hipnotic effect caused by the circular interlaced patterns in movement is beautiful. It also produce a sense of depth inside the coaster making it a nice gift and a excellent prop to start conversation or just leave your imagination fly.

The top of the coasters is made of transparent polycarb, while the bottom is black ABS, both are injection molded, recyclable plastics. One part design is printed directly on the backside of the top plastic while the other par of the design is printed on an adhesive white paper stock glued to the bottom part. The bottom part has also 4 silicon pads to adhere the coasters to different surface.
