We are four young guys, former students of Secondary woodworking school from Škofja Loka. In the fourth year, in the framework of the project My company, implemented by JA Slovenia - the Institute for the Promotion of Entrepreneurship of Young People, we founded the student company.
We entered the project with the idea of producing and selling a unique and innovative handmade wooden product.

One of the members came up with the idea of producing a small wooden plant pot - teglc (teglc is a slovene dialect word for flower pot). We draw some different shapes of pots and at the end selected simple and elegant shape.
The product was put up for sale as a standalone pot, but we later withdrew it.
In fact, we had something more interesting in the stock of ideas ...
We wanted the product that would be floating in the air with no need of electricity power. So, the mission LET'S MAKE THE IMPOSSIBLE POSSIBLE started.
After many failed experiments, we finally managed to find a solution - and the LEVITATING TEGLC was born.
We are offering two different wood types: maple (bright) and walnut (dark).
For our products is used quality Slovenian wood, and local carpenters also help us with the production.
Because we were very successful in selling the floating flower pots, the acquired money was invested in further development.
We created the prototype of a floating bowl and first publicly presented it on March 8, 2018 at the NLB branch office in Ljubljana.
We also offer a cheaper and simpler version of a cube-shaped levitating flower pot. This model is especially suitable for business gifts, as we can, engrave the logo of your company on its surface.
