A GAME AND
Somewhat volcano, somewhat cone, gives fun and atmospheres, contains essences and perfumes … A cone resting on the ground concrete, a base in wood, 3 felt discs – wins those who can thread more discs. With tealight candles, incense or a bunch of cut flowers, a champagne with ice, a light or a perfume, the atmosphere is always guaranteed.
A GAME FOR EVERYONE.
A game for everyone, for all ages: one of the purposes of Vulkono is to combine the different generations in a physical way, interactive, Grandfather playing with granddaughter, Mom with her daughter, aunt with his sister. The rules: place Vulkono a distance of your choice. Each player throws 3 discs, trying to fit them in the tip of the cone. The white disc is worth 1 point, the gray 2 and the black 3 points. Once all players have launched, double the distance from Vulkono. The winner is whoever gets to 88 first.
The cement used for Vulkono is highly performant, extremely resistant to get thin and light thicknesses, and is finished with a water-based protection which makes it waterproof. The wooden base is machined by hand and finished with oil. The discs are made natural felt, soft at the right point not to damage anything if they impact against an object as you play. The chromatic and formal shades make these pieces, derived from a wise artisanal production.
ALL IN ORDER.
Inside the base of the cone in concrete is placed a wooden element to contain the felt disks when stored and not used for play. The base without disks can hold tealight and you can place it on top of the cone. When the cone is upside down the base with its disks within improves stability.
THREE NAUGHTY BROTHERS.
The three-disc content in the base, can be replaced by a dozen of thealight to create a unique atmosphere.
