Your childlike fascination with a grown-up design. Reinventing the classic marble track because fascination knows no age.
The MARBOLOUS marble track: an interactive design object which brings you childlike fascination in a design that is all grown up. It has a fascinating, almost hypnotizing effect.
MARBOLOUS is the re-invention of a classic marble track in the form of an interactive 360° design object.
They incorporated those effects into a modern, natural, and minimalistic aesthetic to create a completely new 360° design object.
With MARBOLOUS, you’re able to interact with the design.
A mechanical marble lifting system, integrated within the 360° metal track, dust-protected under a glass dome. Making mechanics a tangible experience and creating a completely new, interactive design product.
The mechanical lifting system and the direction-changing track not only build a stunning marble track but also lay the foundation to become a new design icon.
Quality materials only – because that’s how much they love marble tracks.
Easily push the stable lifting lever whenever. When you’re stuck in a virtual call, putting together a presentation, or when you just need to detach from reality.
The product has been invented by German engineers and best friends Jan and Baffy to bring fascination for designing marble tracks to the masses.
Existing marble tracks are mostly expensive collector’s pieces – and even those are barely available. The MARBOLOUS is designed and engineered for the masses. Technical details like the mechanical lifting system or novel track segments not only build a stunning marble track but also lay the foundation to enable production on larger scales. Ready to roll over the desks of this world. The use of high-quality materials only combined with the founder’s decades of experience in engineering and product design, resulted in a fascinating product that is built to last.
About the founders
Jan and Baffy have known each other from a very young age. After the first wave of the pandemic, they decided to create a product that lets you dip into the careless days of your childhood. Together, they spend more than a year developing MARBOLOUS.
Baffy quit his job as COO in one of the fastest-growing cleantech companies in the world, to pursue his dream of sharing his passion for marble tracks. He is currently splitting his time between his family and MARBOLOUS. Said Jan Friedmann, co-founder of MARBOLOUS.
The MARBOLOUS glass dome is 3mm thick. The track pure metal made. The riser pipe contains 25 marbles. Each marble will start its journey as soon as the lifting trigger on the socket is put down. It takes one marble approximately 15 seconds to roll down the metal-wielded track.
Since Jan and Baffy started MARBOLOUS, a lot of people called them crazy. But just as many people confessed their love for marble tracks. Of course, one point to turn to Kickstarter is to collect funding for production on a larger scale. But Jan and Baffy also wanted to interact with the huge marble-lover community around the globe to start a conversation, share their passion, and get their thoughts and ideas on the perfect marble track for everyone.
