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.

Now with fresh new additional full HD artworks and larger remastered and reedited high definition versions using the original master tapes. The prints form part of the ongoing 8min 20sec project. A video version of 8min 20sec was once rather fittingly described as 'a wonderful kaleidoscopic visual with subtle flickers of colour'.
The concept was originally based on capturing the city in video sequences of 8 minutes and 20 seconds (= 500 seconds). Later additions expanded the urban focus to also include more natural, rural environments to enrich the project further. Each 500-second-sequence was then reduced to 1 frame per second. The resulting prints are based on the individual collections of 500 frames (each) and are positioned within square compositions (20x25 video stills).
The remastered and new additions are now super high-resolutions and are available in even larger formats 50x50cm (19.7x19.7") and 110x110cm (43.3x43.3") versions. The patchwork video compositions were embedded in the product pages. Additional info and 8min 20sec compositions can be seen at FL@33's studio website flat33.com (prints and videos and exhibitions).
8min 20sec started as a concept in 2002 when FL@33's Tomi Vollauschek first started to record appropriate digital video footage – initially only with prints in mind. The first printed sequences were however not produced until 2004 when five of them were exhibited at the first FL@33 (and Stereohype) solo show in Paris. The original footage was recorded in Paris at the Place Charles de Gaulle (aka Place de l'Étoile) from the top of the Arc de Triomphe that offers a bird’s-eye view to the exceptionally busy roundabout below in which the Arc stands. Other and more recent footage was recorded in London and Le Touquet-Paris-Plage, France.
The project travelled far and wide and was screened in London's Transport Museum, at international design conferences, FL@33 lectures, installations and exhibitions such as an ongoing show in Paris that started in early 2020.
8min 20sec prints are printed on demand and signed on the back.
