Alan rocks @ Freedom Of Creation

FOC general  6.Apr.2012

Hiring designers at Freedom Of Creation is not an everyday treat. We don’t just seek for creative minds, but rare talents who can take any product or project from A to Z within days. Our designers need to have a skill-set with a combination of being a 3D CAD specialist, full blown engineer, 3D printing expert, but above all fun to hang-around with.

Alan Nguyen possessed all these skills and much more, so we decided to buy him a computer, clear a bit of desk and let him go crazy. During his few months stay at Freedom Of Creation, Alan has already successfully finished several products and worked for a number of prestigious clients of ours. We welcome Alan on board!

Janne Kyttanen ‘Stars’ In Heineken Innovation Challenge

FOC general  4.Apr.2012

Janne Kyttanen, founder of Freedom Of Creation, is starring in the 48 hour kick-off of the Heineken Innovation Challenge, April 3-5, 2012. The Challenge, worth $10,000 USD to the winner, invites people from all over the world to share their ideas on the future of sustainable beverage packaging and distribution.

The Heineken Innovation Challenge is the first to crowd source globally for sustainable beverage packaging concepts. Janne, an expert in 3D design, was selected to spend 48 hours in an undisclosed location, with just a web cam, laptop, and 3D printers like the Cube. Janne will demonstrate the entire ideation-to-production process through access to Cubify.com, 3D printers and tweets, Facebook posts and emails from observers on www.ideasbrewery.com

The Heineken Innovation Challenge entries will be submitted to internal sustainability experts for judging according to set criteria: innovation, feasibility and the most votes received at www.ideasbrewery.com. Selected designers will be invited to collaborate with Heineken to enhance and perfect their ideas.  At the conclusion of the Innovation Challenge, an Official Jury of external experts and Heineken management will select one overall winner, who will be notified in June 2012.

Ross Lovegrove selects Louis Filosa as winner FOC Talents

FOC Talents  5.Mar.2012

The FOC Talents Challenge 2011 summer edition, in cooperation with Ross Lovegrove, was awarded to designers who interpreted Lovegrove’s vision of organic essentialism. The jury panel of the contest, composed by Ross Lovegrove, Janne Kyttanen and Brian Garret, were unanimous in their decision: Louis Filosa won the design competition with his Cobble necklace design.

Lovegrove commented about the winning design: “I find erosion a fantastic provider of form and it could be a metaphor for infinite form. What I also like about this work is the contained object which has an almost tribal quality and something more contemporary in the way it is worn…I like its strength and wearability almost as if emotions can crawl inside and live there…ritualistic.

The Cobble necklace is a precious collectible, visually intriguing as a complex piece of jewellery or as a beautiful, organic, and self-contained object. The Cobble necklace is now for sale in red or grey sparkle color.

Bespoke 91 light sources Palm Chandelier

FOC Collection  27.Feb.2012

Freedom Of Creation has developed a custom version of the Palm Chandelier on request of the Staffan Tollgard Design Group. The prestigious interior design studio has commissioned this impressive chandelier to illuminate the spacious rooms of a London private house. Decorated stucco ceilings are perfectly harmonized with the near uncountable, delicate petals of Palm Chandelier, in a brilliant stylistic choice.

Equipped with 91 Palm shades and 5 Watt halogen bulbs, the chandelier is a real eye-catcher and is designed to light up large interior spaces. Light floods through and around every petal. Each shade, produced in polyamide with the latest 3D printing technology, recalls the beauty of nature’s foliage, and diffuses soft filtered light contributing to the exclusive atmosphere of the house. The metal frame has a special gunmetal finish. The Palm Chandelier outside diameter is 160 cm.
