Freedom Of Creation takes 3D printing mainstream

FOC Collection  27.Sep.2011

Until now 3D printing has been considered expensive and only available to a selected few. Freedom Of Creation plans to change this by selling it’s design collection as well as 3D printers at 9 Bijenkorf department stores in The Netherlands during the “3 Dwaze Dagen”.

Some products of the collection will be 3D printed live on the spot during these 3 crazy Bijenkorf annual sales days. The department stores which are part of this event are Amsterdam, Amstelveen, Arnhem, Den Haag, Eindhoven, Enschede, Maastricht, Utrecht and Rotterdam.

The Bijenkorf website “3 Dwaze Dagen” is the most visited website in the Netherlands during these 3 days, with visitors numbers climbing over 3 million. It is not expected to be more quiet on the floor either since an estimated 1.2 million people will visit these sales days.

Freedom Of Creation collaborates with Bits from Bytes, a 3D printer manufacturer from the UK, in order to bring the technology into people’s homes. It will be the first time 3D printers have been commercialized by a large mainstream department store chain in the world. The special Bijenkorf introduction price for the 3D printers is set at €1247,- which enables anybody to become the designer they always wanted to be.

Please follow this link for the opening times, addresses and additional information about “Drie Dwaze Dagen”.

Collaboration with Amnesty International & Maarten Baas

FOC FOR  17.Aug.2011

Maarten Baas is internationally known for his Dutch design works, recently he approached Freedom Of Creation to redesign his ‘Empty Chair‘ into a miniature 3D print. The ‘Empty Chair’ was designed for Amnesty International to honor chinese nobel peace prize winner liu xiaobo.

To create a piece to support their campaign against the increased suppression of writers, journalists, artists and activists. The result is ‘the empty chair’, a seat whose ladder back towers about five meters tall – a kind of metaphor of reaching for the sky, and that freedom of thought and speech is important for all.
