We at OOOMS like working with our hands. Next to designing in all other ways the making of a knife comes down to creating something very patiently, entirely by hand. This is what makes each knife unique and personal.

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 silhouette lamps inspired by ordinary houseplants. Emerging from a wooden base, two plant contours embrace the light in the centre. This will create the idea of a small jungle in your living room. In the evening the lamp will cast vived shadows on the wall,

At OOOMS we are intrigued by the history of The Netherlands.
A great way to get into contact with products of the past is by metal detecting. The idea that any signal could be a historical treasure is a feeling that’s highly addictive.
Now the finds have become an inspiration for a new OOOMS project; Dutch Romans. These are macro images of 2000 year old Roman coins that have been found in the Netherlands. While the focus with metal detecting is mainly on pristine quality, with the Dutch Romans project we are fascinated by the corrosion process, and the shapes and colors that come to life.
The coins that are used are all determined by professional archeologists. Each print carries the name of the emperor that once was clearly visible on the coins. In the description you can read the time period the coins were made, which is around 50 AD for most of them!

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.

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.

The Silhouettes take up virtually no space and best of all; They don’t need water…

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!

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.
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.

There is a primal link between man and fire. Every man should know how to start one. A manly man knows how to start one without matches.
OOOMS has designed a kit for you to master this primitive skill.
And whether or not you ever need to call upon these skills, it’s just cool to know you can start a fire, whenever and wherever you are.
