Working Buddha.

‘Working Buddha’ is an internal project of the ACHU! Studio. We designed a Buddha in a relaxing working position as a reminder of encouragement for professional journey. The pottery figure comes in four different colors with a different meaning each one. We designed the figure not only to be a decorative piece for desk, but also have a functionality as a smarth phone holder.

The packaging of this Working Buddhas is something like a blind box, you can’t know what color will you choose when you buy it. But for those how don’t like surprises, we added a QR that lets you enter to an app. The app not only will reveal the color of the buddha but will give you a different inspirational quote every time you use it, and more motivational stuffs. With this product we want to encourage people to keep working hard but with a peaceful and joyful mind.

Looking to find your inner zen? Working Buddha is a decorative figure that serves an inspirational and functional purpose. ACHU! Studio was behind the bold packaging for this special product. The Dieline
