OOF 08 - OlioOfficina magazine

OLIOOFFICINA -OOF- Olio Officina magazine Remi van Oers 2.jpg

Remi wrote a guest article for ‘rivista milanese’: Olio Officina, OOF. As a friend of the magazine Remi had previously written for the online version of OOF. This time the Italian magazine reached out to Remi to write for Number 8 of the international printed edition, which focussed on ‘olio d'oliva’, olive oil. In the eight page long guest article Remi informally taps in on the broader sense of design, the Milan design week 2019, and the work of female designer and former fellow Design Academy Eindhoven student Sabine Marcelis.

OOF 8, the quarterly magazine, is published in both English and Italian, and available for purchase worldwide on their website.

OOF Numero 8.

Nov 2018

Dutch lifestyle brand Hutspot with concept stores in Amsterdam, Utrecht, Rotterdam and Eindhoven is our official Dutch partner for the design studio's starting collection.

Hutspot with its hand-picked and pioneering assortment is a perfect match with our studio. Together we kickoff the launch of NEWTIME time 2.1 in Eindhoven.

Remi about the new partnering:

“We envision to have a very minimal selection of official partners. We select the most suitable partners in ambience, service and quality. Hutspot is a unique fit for the studio and I am very enthusiastic on us starting to work together.”

Shapeways Clip-it review

Shapeways, the 3D-printing manufacturer for our Apple accessories line just started a brand new column on their website called ‘Reviews’ to demonstrate the products they like. To kick off this new column Shapeways took a closer look at my design Clip-it, a small gadget that takes away the hassle to charge your iPhone.

Winning the Red Dot Design Award

Red Dot Award.jpg

Dreaming to one day -before retiring- winning a Red Dot Design Award would have be a cherry on the cake. Winning this award now for designing the Carving Balance for Carving Fitness, which we worked on very hard for the last two years, really feels rewarding!

 

Statement by the jury:
“The Carving Balance strikes a convincing balance between elegant design and functionality and thus enhances the pleasure of working out.”

 

The Red Dot Organisation gave us a letter with overwhelming numbers ready to use in an impressive press release, stating with the fact that we are one of the successful winners out of 4928 entries from 56 countries, while being judged by a 38-member jury of international experts who awarded us with a Red Dot Award for high design quality.

This could easily be used to make a great impression of course, but I am prouder stating that we created this great product with a really small and dedicated team, with the core participants countable on one hand. Proud to say that our goal was not to win an award but to create the best possible fitness product we can today. I am proud to see that taking design seriously, believing in innovation and working with a good collaboration actually does reap its reward. For this I am proud!

I want to thank the people involved in this journey so far, from engineering, to manufacturing, to web development. I want to thank Twan Kuijpers, founder of Carving Fitness in particular for believing in this designer with his ideas of renewal. Hard work pays off doesn’t it?

Way too early to retire though, so up to the next award!
