OOOMS Design.

OOOMS is a Dutch design company with interesting products. Anti-Gravity Machine, Lo-Res Chair, Rebellious Desk and Golden Staples are among my favorites. Slightly NSFW for the very small thumbnailed image of some stylish sex toys. Via

Thanks. I've been looking for a dildo with a Dutch pastoral motif for months.

Snag a Hair Hat and have a party this weekend.

"Price on request" is Dutch for "No way you can afford this."

Excellent, some really interesting ideas there

They need to work on their WEB design. Not very accessible. I wanted to look, honest!

Gold plated staples. I want.

"These topographical depressions are as iconographic as wooden shoes and tulips"... Ohh-Kay.

That "city hideout" is interesting in concept, but creepy in reality I would imagine.
Also the world is not Amsterdam. Without those great little street urinals, guaranteed someone will pee on you.

I like the USB "sticks" - the photos of twigs sticking out of laptops are cool. The price, however, is not.

That hair hat looks like the perfect accessory for your Jame Gumb custom-tailored skinsuit. All the best serial killers will be wearing them this year.

grab a cheapo usb drive, take apart, carve a hole in a stick... insert. hey presto!

The time it takes you to do this will probably be close to the savings you have made, but sure.

I definitely like the Rebellious Cabinet. Nice, perverse sense of humor at work there.

Actually, it's Dutch for "this is just a rendering, we have no idea how much it would cost to actually manufacture this".

I love the fact that "Blogs" are "worthless."

O.K. the Expect cabinet is freaking awesome! Gah!

I must find a carpenter who can make that for me. Man. Wooh. I can't get over it. It is so good. I'm freaking out here.
Wow.

The Rebellious Cabinets are awesome, but the wireframe table is downright sexy.

I agree, d-n-b-boy.
Now if only I could find some wire-frame plates and glasses...
posted by Dizzy at 8:32 AM on April 26, 2007


dirty num bangel boy? Hmm. Not how I parse it, but whatever.

I like the green wireframe chairs, meself. Are the dildos actual ceramics? Yikes.

My bad.
I always think "dirty-numb-BAGEL-boy" instead of his proper appellation.
I blame it on those lost afternoons sniffing Elmer's.

I imagine that a ceramic dildo could be quite pleasurable, if you like that sort of thing. I know a few people who swear by their glass toys.

I want a house filled with all of this. And I want the house designed by them as well. I wonder if that means everytime I closed a door a window would open.

thanks for the link, there's some really neat stuff in there. It's always nice to see design that isn't being restricted by such outmoded concepts as 'utility' or 'marketability'.

I believe God has filed for a patent on that already.

Even just thinking about the perversity of that Rebellious cabinet upsets me a little. Knowing that one could be out there, being difficult, forcing people to be okay with incompletion. Perhaps useful as a therapy for obsessive compulsive types, used in small doses.
