What's next, post onboarding?
The latest things we've built.
Hey there 👋 I’m Mathilde. We are Objet. We explore the intersection of consumerism, myth, satisfaction, desire, joy and pride. Not specifically in that order. To brag at your next dinner, Objet is the french word for 'object' and should be pronounced 'OB-JEH'.
If you’re new here, welcome !
Here’s what we’re gonna talk about today: all you can do, with Objet.
What’s up once I’ve completed the onboarding?
Cool reads, cause it’s always cool to read cool stuff
Ever felt like regretting a purchase on a regular basis? Yeah I know.
Regretful purchases have a compounding effect on our confidence, and we are building Objet to cure this pain. Empowering individuals to cure society.
Me in Six ✅
What are six of your most treasured pieces ?
Onboarded in the app. What’s next?
After you’ve been through this cathartic exercise of logging six of your most significant objects [👆] maybe it is time to guide you through the next steps.
The surprising thing we’ve seen lately is that by helping people reflect on their possessions ➡️ we empower them to enjoy more what they already have ➡️ which then leads to more intentional purchases ➡️ which then increases overall -life- satisfaction.
Remember that first time you tried meditation? You might have ended up the “you-can-feel-the-air-passing-through-the-nostrils” session with an ‘ok’ or mitigated experience. But somehow you knew that you had to trust the process to start feeling the benefits. Which you did. (Maybe! 🙃)
A practice was needed. So it is here. (Uh, uh, no shortcut.)
For about a week now, you’re able to ‘meet’ the rest of the community through their ‘me in six’. Pay them a visit, see what curious objects are lying out there. Some of you have taken the time to write a few words about them. 💜
/Enchant with stories (and more)
Each of your treasured object has a unique meaning and importance ; here is how you can enrich a card :
record a voice story 🗣, as it comes
A hesitant, fun, stupid anecdote. A poem, a song, even (just saying).
type in notes 💬 worth saving
An exact reference, the vintage shop you’ve unearthed it from, the name of the person who offered it to you,…
enrich its ‘passport’ with guided info 🏷
Brand, size, price,… information that can be useful to have with you at any time, and that will not be shared
gather objects under a collection 👑
Organize objects under more personal topics, then keep it for yourself, or share it to the outside world, even to folks who don’t have Objet yet
/Play with prompts
Aside from these first six objects that came to mind, you might have treasured ones hidden in so many different categories… Let us guide you through this exploration!
We’re excited to announce some guided collections, to help you get started with the practice of being grateful for the existing. Participate first, then discover what rare and random gems the community has been digging up! Revealing our three prompts now…
the odd: YELLOW
the persnickety: WORKSPACE
the seasonal: CHRISTMAS (coming soon, at an appropriate time, baby😎)
Update the app. A new Edito section on your homepage will be your guide. This is where we’ll be sharing updates and content on a regular basis. Anyway, I ain’t that far, so for any questions, hit reply! ☺️
And since Objet is also an introspective and collective journey, we are offering you to join as premium and unlock these two features:
a 30-minute call ☎️ with one of us founders, and many more along the way
Let’s dig together into your own relationship with objects in a thoughtfully designed, pretty intimate format
an exclusive access to our Discord server 🌎
Join our group of early members who openly share about their recent purchases, seek info and good practices, philosophize, share and comment great pieces of content
📰 How Many Clothes Do We Need? Somehow ironic that Vogue is publishing this piece, isn’t it? Having said so, asking ourselves this question is pretty interesting 'If I could only buy 5 new garments in 2023; which ones should they be?'
The researchers found that a “sufficient” wardrobe consists of 74 garments and 20 outfits in total. As an example, they’ve suggested six outfits for work, three outfits for homewear, three outfits for sports, two outfits for festive occasions, plus four outdoor jackets and trousers or skirts.
Have you thought about yours?
Til next time,
