Custom of the Month: Heimplanet
This month we are featuring Mizu Custom products from Heimplanet. The Mizu team recently had the chance to catch up with the German brand about their continued commitment to sustainability and the inspiration behind their product line.
First, tell us about your brand.
The journey of HEIMPLANET began with the idea of a new tent concept that occurred during a surf trip in Portugal. In 2011 the first inflatable tent THE CAVE was launched, which disrupted the tent market.
Since then, HEIMPLANET has presented a whole range of products that focused on a simple formula –for every trip and everyday. By combining the best technical features available with a clean and simple design, HEIMPLANET products work in a great variety of surroundings and situations. The result is extremely versatile products that help you focus on the inspirational site of traveling:
Traveling keeps you feeling alive. All your senses are alert and you are always expecting something new to happen. You constantly adjust to new situations, new people, new cultures, and new environments. There is less to rely on and more to discover. If you open up to the experience, you will learn not just about new things, but also about yourself. – Embrace the difference, join the moment and make yourself at home, wherever you go.
There is a special word that exists just in German: Heimat. [ˈhaimaːt] It describes the place you feel at home, the place where you belong, the place you are dedicated to, the place that makes you feel like its all going to be all right somehow, no matter what. Heimplanet is inspired by the excitement of traveling.
What about Mizu made us a great fit for your brand?
We wanted to share Mizu’s mission to protect where we play by reducing single use products in our everyday. When we design products, we try to create something unique and incorporate a novelty in our products. If we can´t find something better, we prefer to collaborate with the original.
What are you going to be using your Mizu custom products for?
We designed a whole collection of Mizu Custom designs already and we really like the canvas that the bottles offer us. It’s a great way to express the idea of HEIMPLANET. These bottles are available for sale online on our website.
Right now we are working on installing a water fountain at our store in Hamburg. We want to offer fresh water for everyone. As long as you bring a reusable bottle you are free to fill up at the fountain.
