I'm extremely proud to share with you some of my new designs in collaboration with 3D Hubs and Fairphone. Two 3D Printed Woodfill accessories; exclusively produced and manufactured by pioneers of decentralized manufacturing, 3D Hubs, for the new, improved and extremely socially conscious Fairphone 2.
First off Fairphone is doing some really amazing things. If you don't know about them, check them out. Long story short, they are changing the game of design and socially conscious manufacturing. Totally transparent, they share with the world, where they source materials, how they manufacture, even how much their margins are. Truly a "Fair Phone". On top of that wholesome goodness, their phone is really cool. It's exterior has an awesome built in protective case that can be removed without any tools. The interior is totally modular where parts can be swapped out and upgraded, for easy fixes as well as future proofing. Seriously this thing is so easy to fix, the screen can be replaced in less than 30 seconds!
Secondly, the partnership with 3D Hubs is a match made in heaven. If you don't know about 3D Hubs by now, it's about time you check them out. They're sole passion is to break down this crazy cycle of waste and deliver on demand parts and products locally through 3D Printing Hubs. They have over 20,000 Hubs and a reach of over 1 Billion people. Most likely there's a 3D Hub near you. The idea is simple, you think 3D Printing is awesome, because it is, but you don't have a 3D Printer. You have a cool idea or design and want to 3D Print it. If you can 3D Model all you do is upload your design, and boom, someone near you 3D Prints it and you can walk down the street and pick up your part. If you don't know how to 3D Model, there are some great places you can find on the internet that has really cool designs for free. Most likely those places are already linked with 3D Hubs, all you have to do is just place an order.
Case in point, Fairphone and the new Fairphone 2.
Like I said previously, I had the great privilege to design two new designs for the Fairphone 2. The first is a Nightstand. The idea was to design a beautiful and minimal as well as functional. The Nightstand is not only a great way to watch videos but also a brilliant dock that keeps your charging cable organized. The second design is a fantastic Amplifier. Inspired by the natural acoustics of conch shells, the Amplifier naturally magnifies the sound of the rear facing speaker directly to the front. Both designs are produced with a special Wood filled 3D Printing material that is both environmentally friendly and has a very unique and familiar texture and quality that you have to see to believe. The smell is quite amazing as well!
