When an opportunity comes along, grab it – whether it be in business or in life! Los Angeles-based designer, Cory Grosser, didn’t hesitate for a moment when he got the opportunity to collaborate with BuzziSpace, and neither did we. The feeling was mutual.

From the very first years and up until now, BuzziSpace has collaborated with both upcoming and established designers to develop products and ideas that match the DNA of the brand – each contributing with a unique design language that sets their products apart from the others.

Speaking another language

As a new designer to the team, the conversation naturally started out by Cory sharing his vision on design.

“If I had to label my style as a designer, Californian Minimalism is probably the most fitting tag. It’s a way of designing that’s very clean and pure, reducing nonessential elements. But, it isn’t as cold or sterile as some minimalism can be. Rather, it brings warmth and explores simple geometric shapes that are easily understandable to the viewer.”

Turning to BuzziMood, the product translates this design language to reality. The graphic composition of BuzziMood and the various shapes allow people to create and recreate their own theme, experimenting with soft curves and edgy squares depending on the ambiance they want to create.

Create and respond

The inspiration for this new product came from different sources, but primarily as a response and alternative solution to spaces in which acoustics suffer. As such, BuzziMood is very functional. It helps mitigate noise to create a more focused and balanced space while serving as a natural air humidity indicator. But, functionality isn’t a stand-alone objective for Cory.

“Design is about emotion too. As a designer, empathy is crucial. It’s about understanding and transforming how people feel in a space. Of course, functionality is important, but nothing beats putting a smile on people’s faces! It’s the same vision that has been fueling the design process of BuzziMood."

Cory continues, "We continuously asked ourselves the question: How can we make people feel better at work? And really, BuzziMood is a manifestation of the answer to this question. It’s fun and versatile. You see people touching it and it immediately makes them smile.”

With these final words, we are inviting you to experience BuzziMood first-hand. Choose your favorite shapes, materials and fit it into your space to feel the difference! Remember, no more moody days, only all smiles!
