Lausanne, Switzerland, October 21, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- On October 12, 2015, KOSHA, the design brand based in Lausanne launched an international crowdfunding campaign on the American platform Kickstarter.com to support the launch of its new collection, LAZA, the letter opener. The campaign will run for 30 days and will thereby end on November 11.
Why such a campaign? “If we reach the first goal of 12’000 CHF, it will allow the series production of this new object. If the support goes beyond that, it will help us develop new collections and in the best case scenario, hire more people,” said Claudio D’Amore, founder.
Anyone who supports the project on Kickstarter can choose a reward. For example, a limited edition of the LAZA letter opener customized with the name of the contributor.
The LAZA letter opener
The LAZA letter opener elevates the ordinary, to an exclusive and inspiring experience. Its shape is inspired by the Swallow, with its long and slender tail, symbol of a good omen worldwide. The Swallow symbolizes freedom, happiness, luck and purity. The swallow is also known as "the messenger of good news."
The LAZA Letter Opener was meticulously designed in Switzerland with a special attention to details. This refined object is manufactured in Italy and made of high grade stainless steel that combines resistance and flexibility. Both Switzerland and Italy share a historical reputation for high quality standards and exquisite design.
