Ffrash products

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

Sugar Screen

Fooddesigner Annelies Hermsen asked a selected group of designers to be creative with 100 kilograms of sugar. While receiving lots of comments on the sweet smell in and around our workshop, OOOMS created a room divider with caramel & Meranti.

The creations were presented during the Dutch Design Week 2009, the perfect meeting place for designers, companies and public. A dinner was served, mainly containing sugar based ingredients. Meanwhile visitors could enjoy the remarkable designs at Lebesque, a well-respected company in both the Netherlands and abroad.

Hollow land N 51 24.928 O 05 19.640

About one third of Holland (meaning “hollow land”) is below sea level. Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport is built in the middle of a former lake Flevoland, which is also reclaimed from sea, is on average 8 metres below sea level. The concept of “Hollow Land” highlights the fact that Holland is not only flat, but below sea level as well. These topographical depressions are as iconographic as wooden shoes and tulips. A mould is made of a hole in the ground, somewhere in the Netherlands. From the mould, a perfect replica of the hole is produced in ceramics.
