Kosmik is reevaluating the desktop, the one programme that was never placed in the cloud. The desktop environment was designed to be the digital equivalent of our physical workstations, but it hasn't evolved with the ways we gather, connect, and exchange information in modern times. In fact, it hasn't altered much since its creation.

Paul Rony, Kosmik Founder said, “With traditional desktops, a file can only live in one folder at a time, even if it might be related to others. If you pull it out, you break its ties. As a result, we lose the full context, can’t easily find what we need, and end up wondering: “why did I save this?” Kosmik was created out of the desire to arrange our knowledge in a way that’s personal, intuitive, and spacial,”.

With Kosmik, users can collect a vast amount of data and create and maintain the relationships between it all on a freeform canvas that unifies the various ways we find and utilise information.

Users can simultaneously browse the web, read PDFs, import files, annotate documents, and pull information from PDFs and online pages straight onto the canvas using Kosmik's integrated browser, PDF reader, and text editor. These data points are then connected to create a visual record of the items you have saved and the reasons behind them.

The end product is a granular desktop that functions as a networked storehouse of information and concepts, or what Kosmik refers to as a "universe," that users may share as a public website for multiplayer collaboration.

Hanel Baveja, Principal at Creandum and Kosmik Board Member said, “Paul and the Kosmik team have built an exceptional product for knowledge management that reimagines from the ground up many outdated paradigms in our daily workflows, from folders to links. Loved already by its users, we couldn’t be more excited to back Kosmik in the next phase of their journey,”

About Kosmik

Kosmik was established in 2018 by Paul Rony and is run by a group of operators from well-known European companies, such as Beam, Deezer, Apple, and others.

These individuals create Kosmik universes for a variety of purposes, such as creating and sharing mood boards with clients or organising projects and sprints by connecting Figma designs, Notion briefs, and team notes.
