Concept

The classic PIN hanger is created by seam welding two sheets of metal and deforming it through inner air pressure using a compressor. The HOT PIN is similar but is formed through pressure formed within the object itself. The user receives the product flat packed and sealed with our secret potion locked inside. At temperature of 200ºC the HOT PIN transforms from a flat 2 dimensional object gaining a bulbous 3 dimensional shape. This way anyone can bake their own DIY hangers at home.

Recipe:
Choose 220g of the best piece of metal and roll it into a thin sheet under 1mm thick.
Use a laser cookie cutter to create patterns of your choosing and weld them together.
Add the filling in the form of our secret potion and seal the cookie before baking.
Preheat the oven to 200 ºC and carefully place the HOT PIN on a baking tray.
Bake for 20 minutes and then carefully remove using protective baking mitts.
Allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before touching the HOT PIN – it may burn you, it is literally very HOT!
This is how you create a tasty piece of design, which we want to share with you.
