INSPIRATION




The Inspiration
Inspired by nature, greenery and the profound impact it has on our mental wellbeing,
"Habitat" brings harmony to your keyboard setup while fostering a sense of tranquility in our digital lives.
The design blends botanical elements with soft shades of green, beige and earthy tones, evoking a sense of calm and serenity.

so too can your mental wellbeing. By bringing nature indoors it allows us to reconnect with it amidst the digital chaos.

With the kitting, there is no 1.5u backspace (R2). If your including the rest of hhkb/tsangan support then you should definitely include it. Also not the biggest fan of the center left alphas and would prefer to keep them in the top left, but that's just preference, I assuming that was a design choice you made?

Thanks for the feedback! We will add the 1.5u backspace however we might have to replace it with the green accent pipe. The legends placement is part of the design.

The color looks very similar to the GMK Hanami Dango.... which color matching screwed the set completely.

Looking forward to this set as the alternative!

How did they screw up the color matching? The set looks very saturated overall.

We're going for a more pastel/smokey palette.

Quick update.

Adjusted the colors for the novelties and we're close to finishing the color proofing.

We will adjust the renders to match it closer to the samples once the color has been confirmed.

Super hyped for the caps! Any news on when and if the GB might happen?

Edit: ah, just saw that you changed the GB time to Q4 2023, that answers my question :)

Any chance for a metal artisan thatís solid green and engraved? I like the monochrome look but seems like artisan monochrome keycaps arenít that common.

Hey, we're currently only collaborating with HIBI for the artisan. Sorry about that!
