OOOMS was invited to co-operate in a project to help former street children in Jakarta, Indonesia. This project is called Ffrash and is initiated and organized by Gina Provo Kluit, a Dutch woman who is living in Jakarta.
The main assignment for OOOMS was to design a collection of interior products, by re-using waste material. Besides that we had to train former street children and teach them how to make these products. One of the goals was to improve their workshop skills and teach the youngsters the principles of design and entrepreneurship. By doing this they have a better chance of finding a job. The profit generated by the sales of the Ffrash products will be used to support KDM, the shelter that provides the street children a home, education, attention and much more. This is also the location where the workshop has been set up.
We are really proud to present this first interior product collection for Ffrash. The official launch of the Ffrash collection has been held during the Dutch Design Week 2013 in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. www.oooms.nl/dutch-design-week-2013
