We live life at break-neck speeds. Time flies and sometimes it’s hard to remember the details of all the fun we’ve had along the way. As far as we’re aware time travel is still a way off, so until we can travel back in time to relive the happiest moments, we’ve created TimeCapsules. It’s the perfect way to capture and hold onto the big moments in life; the birth of a baby, a wedding, a farewell, a graduation etc. Whatever the moment is with a TimeCapsule you can keep the memories of these milestone moments in life alive and fresh for years to come.
What’s in it?
TimeCapsules is a collaboration between founder Anouk van der El, the award winning product designers of OfficeOriginair, creative collective Venour and graphic designers Mae Engelgeer & Marloes Sijm. Inside your TimeCapsule you find a booklet that you can decorate with our handy question stickers, your answers and personal messages from friends and family. You can stick photos, drawings and sketches onto the pages in the booklet with our magic tape. We also included a handy manual, some graphic wrapping paper, a shiny golden sticker for your #1 memory and funky tags that you can hang onto personal items you want to include. Finally, you find a super strength sealing-strip to close the TimeCapsule with and keep all your goodies safe from curious wanderers for years to come!
The TimeCapsules Legend
We would love to be able to claim this genius idea as totally ours… but that would be a lie. The truth is that the inspiration came from a very famous creative genius, none other than the fabulously quirky Andy Warhol. In the early 70’s Warhol always had a brown cardboard moving box next to his desk where he’d collect bits of his daily life such as receipts, sketches, newspapers, phone messages and tissues with Marilyn Monroe’s lipstick mark. When the boxes were full he would write the date on the box and seal it up. At the time of his death there were no less than 612 ‘Time Capsules’. This huge collection gives an intimate look into the life and the era of this artistic and eccentric legend, and we think it’s a pretty good idea.
