Silhouettes

A nice thing about the human mind is that it only needs parts of information in order to get the whole idea, we easily fill in the gaps with information from past experiences. So to evoke an image of a plant, the outline of one will do. OOOMS created 3 silhouettes of ordinary houseplants, to be used at home in your windowsill or as desk divider at the office. The Silhouettes take up virtually no space and best of all; They don’t need water…

OOOMS coaching

OOOMS offers creative workshops to design schools, colleges, academies and institutes. All workshops are custom made in consultation with the client.

Besides being devoted designers, Guido and Karin love to share their knowledge by facilitating workshops worldwide. They are certified educators and both teach one day a week at the University of Arts Utrecht and the Design Academy Eindhoven.

The goal of these workshops is not to design a perfect product but rather to provide insights into the design process and the associated challenges of rational thinking and manual skills. The method for the workshops is ‘learning by doing’, so a real hands on approach is demanded from all participants.

Testimonials:

Through this workshop, I have learnt things that were beyond what I could learn in a normal classroom. I have learnt new ways to explore different materials. Something that the Dutch designers mentioned will remain etched in my mind ”Limitations of a material mainly exist in the mind.“ Alvin Ng Sing Por | Diploma in Interior Design, Year 2

It was a good learning experience through an iterative design process, in our case working with a very common material like paper we explored different ways of manipulating the material to transform it into a designed object. It was also a very hands on experience, working physically with the materials from beginning to end made it very dynamic and fun. Also the way Guido & Karin teach I thought was great because they had to pay attention to each of us and give us personal feedback on our ideas and concepts. Damaso Mayer | product design CEDIM, year 3

I feel that this workshop has really helped me understand more about how a designer works in a real company and how to approach design through material exploration in a project. Nazirah Kau Hui Ling | Diploma in Experience and Product

The best take away from workshop is that the design process should be about not thinking too much but just doing it. In my education, such a process has not been used and this workshop taught me to do so. Jane Ang Jia Ying | Diploma in Experience and Product Design, Year 3

Puzzleboard

The Puzzleboard by OOOMS can be used in more ways than one: each board can be used on its own as a cutting board or serving plate, or put some boards together and you have super-sized your workspace. It’s ideal for cutting those long baguettes!

But the best thing is that any wineglass can be fitted into the blank spot of a board. Using the boards at parties allows guests to enjoy both wine & delicacies, while still having one hand free to greet other friends.

Dimensions: 29 x 17.5 x 1.7 cm /  11.4 x 6.9 x 0.7 inch

Lost & Found in Singapore

Studio OOOMS has been invited to conduct a 5 day workshop at the Singapore Polytechnic. The title of the workshop is “Lost and Found”. This title is based on the free materials that have lost their original function and for which a new function will be found. The group assignment demands a real hands on approach, as well as the ability to make quick decisions and to be creative with limited materials. The programme places an emphasis on practice-oriented, creative work, complemented by short presentations and discussions.

iPad Stand

Like many people we at OOOMS enjoy using Apple products. While using the iPad, we noticed it would be very convenient to be able to place the iPad on different angles, without having to hold it. Because we are designers we couldn’t resist making a stand ourselves.

This is what we came up with; Our iPad stand is an adjustable wooden stand which you can use at your desk, in the kitchen, on the couch, etc. It can pop-up into a versatile tablet stand that supports both portrait and landscape viewing modes on 3 different angles. Tiny magnets make sure the stand stays nicely folded when you transport it in your suitcase or bag. Our iPad stand also works for iPads with a cover, other tablets and even books!

Schizo Vase

The word schizophrenia is derived from the Greek words for to split (schidzein) and mind (phren). This splitting is related to fragmenting of the thought processes. OOOMS used this as inspiration to create a  vase with a ribbed surface which creates two different shapes. The outside shape is based on a Greek Amphora vase. The inner shape is inspired by an brass Indian flower vase.

Roadkill Carpet

Do you know the feeling that you do not want to take a look at something, but you still do? The Roadkill carpet is a continuous struggle between attraction and repulsion. It’s a warm, soft, cuddly carpet that attracts you to take a nap on it. But at the same time its a repulsive image of a car-flattened, bloody fox.

Ffrash

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.

Ffrash collection

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.

Our first visit to Jakarta was in August 2012. During two weeks we’ve visited many interesting and sometimes smelly sites of the city. We noticed there is a tremendous amount of trash filling the streets and clogging the city’s sewer system. We spend our time collecting as much information as possible about the different waste materials, and meeting the parties involved, like the Dutch Embassy, Intercontinental and KLM.

  • Bottlecap Stool

Back at our studio we used all our spare time to work on the project. We executed many experiments involving plastics, glass, metal, microwave ovens, blenders and blowtorches. By the time we had to leave for Jakarta again we developed a large number of concepts and ideas and left with a flexible mindset to be prepared for the unexpected.

Our work in Jakarta has been a great experience with many challenges and surprises, but already a success on its own. We’ve bought machines, set up the workshop, made prototypes and trained the youngsters. The selected youngsters make a great team and rarely have we seen such enthusiasm and motivation!

August 2013 OOOMS has been in Jakarta for the third time to fine-tune the designs and add new products to the collection. 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

Goldplated Staples

OOOMS thinks we can all agree that the overly bland corporate environment can use any type of excitement boost that it can get. Enter these 14 carat goldplated staples. Intended primarily as a form of jewelry, these luxury pieces can be applied to clothing (or just about anything) with the help of your average stapler. Of course you can also impress your boss by turning in your next report decked out in gold. He will feel you.
