Gift Box — BGB040
Warning: Last items in stock!
PLEASE NOTE — Our long so-called bracelet-style top lid gift boxes (215 x 45 x 25mm) will soon be replaced with Stereohype's new matchbox-style gift box versions. We only have limited stock of these long boxes left during this transition period. New additions will automatically be packaged with our new matchbox-style packaging. We will gradually reshoot preview visuals but for now it is what you see is what you get.
Each of these long luxury gift boxes contains seven of Stereohype's popular button badges. Selected designs are taken from Stereohype's growing button badge collection. So-called Artist Gift Boxes feature button badges designed by only one of Stereohype's super-talented 600+ international contributors – artists, illustrators, designers, architects, photographers, collectives and studios. Inside the elegant matt black cardboard gift box is a black flock pad and badges are directly pinned into it. All Stereohype button badges available at stereohype.com are classic high quality one inch (25mm) metal back badges with so-called D-pin (although it looks more like an 'e'). Tiny stickers at the back of each button badge mention the artist, release date, series number, etc. Badges are printed and encapsulated with love and care in the United Kingdom.
Badges from Stereohype's B.I.O. Series 16. Details of glitch visuals by FL@33's Tomi Vollauschek from his collection of screenshots, photographs and digitally manipulated pictures that embrace random and often unexpected errors that technology confronts us with. Tomi's glitch artworks celebrate technology's aesthetics – inside and beyond the physical machines such as computers, hand-held touchscreen devices, film and photo cameras and in case of these glitch button badges – HD TV screens. Gradients and blurry colours are seemingly created with 'digital watercolour' – brief moments when frames per seconds meet data streaming struggles.
Single badge SKUs: B1238B16, B1239B16, B1240B16, B1241B16, B1242B16, B1243B16 and B1244B16.
FL@33 is a multi-disciplinary design studio based in London and founded in 2001 by Royal College of Art graduates Agathe Jacquillat and Tomi Vollauschek. Since then FL@33 has created an award-winning, internationally published body of work, ranging from self-initiated projects to commissioned work for clients from around the world, across many different sectors, regardless of size and budget. From logos to integrated identity systems, intriguing imagery to complete book designs, from poster campaigns to websites, moving image and interior design.
Agathe and Tomi are friendly, passionate and dedicated designers who give international lectures, judge, art direct, consult, design, curate, exhibit, contribute to books and magazines, conceive, compile, edit and write their own books, give workshops, and also develop design products for the studio’s sister company Stereohype. The founding directors have been described as multi-lingual, multi-specialised design activists consistently striving to exceed expectations of their demanding clients – using wit and humour to create fresh, imaginative and engaging visual communication, products and interior designs.
A FL@33 monograph (Design & Designer 033 – FL@33) was published in 2005 by Pyramyd and the three books authored and designed by FL@33 were published worldwide by Laurence King and partner publishers: Postcard (2008), Made & Sold: Toys, T-Shirts, Prints, Zines and Other Stuff (2009) and more recently The 3D Type Book (2011). In the same year FL@33’s popular online sound collection project bzzzpeek.com was exhibited in New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Agathe and Tomi self-published the widely acclaimed Trans-form magazine (2001) and the tenth anniversary book and exhibition catalogue Stereohype 2004–2014.
