We were invited to design, build and install some skate spot inspired crazy golf courses, for the European launch of Eric Kostons new shoe. With the help of Martin on the courses and Lisa with the flags, we got it done in 10 days. It was allot of fun and they worked pretty well, maybe Floda needs some…
We designed and built these skatable sculptures 9 years ago and placed them at the world famous Southbank, the unofficial home of London skateboarding for the last 40 years. The oldest one is concrete and 9 years old, then the two stone ones are only 7 years old. It’s interesting to see how they are holding after the years of continual grinding.
Stage one has been completed, with the movable, foldable model landscape of mars we made now firmly touched down at Umevatoriet and we had some expert help from astro physicist Bastien Erpelding on getting the landscape just right. The Mars rover and control interface was designed and built by students from KriMag Technology and teams of students and school classes will be able to control these rovers from ipad docking stations as it explores the landscape.
Every month from now on VIA presents an interesting company operating in Västerbotten! They are doing this to show a glimps of all the impressive companies that exists in the Västerbotten region. Companies from all sectors, sizes and age will be presented. First up is Floda 31!
We have been quietly making a model landscape of Mars for umevatoriet in Umeå, the more complicated bit was making the structure to hold it. Allot of fun to be had with the mini rover they will drive around on it. Finishing touches to be added, bit of Mars dust and we are done.
Quick bit of drawing so the robot cutter can do it’s thing. Made together with Jasjit form UID, at the UMA tool shed for the interdisciplinary workshop.
