Trans-form, Trans-it, trans-port.org, a conceptual FL@33 project based on everyday observations of tower cranes, self-published, award-winning magazine with attached CD-Rom and a website. Trans-form, Trans-it, trans-port.org is a self-initiated Architecture, Art and Design publication by FL@33 founders Agathe Jacquillat and Tomi Vollauschek. It's a conceptual project based on everyday observations of tower cranes combining a magazine, a CD-Rom and a website. The project was made public in July 2001 during the Royal College of Art, master degree Show in London and marked the birth and intentions of FL@33.
The large scale magazine explores the magic of urban sculptures that appear and disappear in the cities we are living in. Tower cranes that are lifting, transporting, re-constructing, drawing, cutting, performing and trans-forming are usually unnoticed by the public's eye. Trans-form presents information about tower cranes and crane operators' daily work in the sky. The CD-Rom adds videos and animations combining industrial structures with natural imagery and is presenting a cityscape metamorphosis, defining our cities as being in a larval stage. Trans-port.org offers you the possibility to build your own crane, to climb a tower crane and to be a crane operator. The widely-acclaimed project has been mentioned and featured online and in numerous magazines and books around the world.
Stockists / Currently available again: Trans-form used to be available in bookshops and museum stores around the world. It was believed to be sold out for years but a box full of Trans-form magazines in mint condition (including Trans-it of course) has recently been unearthed and the previously sold out magazine is currently available again – exclusively at stereohype.com (worldwide shipping).
Please note that a screen capture preview video of the CD-Rom's content was recently posted at flat33.com. FL@33 also created an updated 'player' for Mac OS X users to enjoy the CD-Rom's content that was originally created for Mac OS 9 at the time. A link to this free app update can be found in flat33.com's Downloads section.
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.
