STEREOHYPE / HABITAT SETS 2011/12
FL@33 and it's sister company Stereohype, graphic art label / online boutique, have partnered up with Habitat in 2010 to develop and manufacture a series of themed button badge sets of four to be sold in Habitat stores across France, Germany, Spain and also the three London flagship stores of Habitat UK – now part of Home Retail Group.

PACKAGING
A packaging was developed in close collaboration with Habitat and after all required lab-tests and procedures were finalised – the first five badge sets were produced at the time as a test-run. FL@33 improved the packaging further the following year for another – even larger order for the 2011/12 sets.
___ Sets were compiled by the FL@33 / Stereohype team and selected from our growing collection of button badges created for Stereohype by emerging and established artists and designers from around the world. Since 2004 the entire collection has already grown to over 1,000 individual button badge designs.
___ Shown here are pictures of the final badge sets but also a few packaging details and samples.

PRODUCTION AND ROYALTIES
The selected Habitat badge sets 2011/12 were produced in China – the second time in Stereohype's history – as quantities were simply too high for our usual manufacturing processes in the United Kingdom.
___ Once again we were in a position to offer royalties to the selected designers – a real pleasure as this was something we always had in mind but knew it would only become possible when truly large quantities of one particular design would be sold.
___ The high-quality badge sets 2011/12 hit national and international Habitat stores in September / October 2011.

(...) B.I.O. undoubtedly makes Stereohype one of the coolest online shopping destinations for button badges. (...) Gavin Lucas, excerpt from his book Badge/Button/Pin



(...) Über die B.I.O.-Initiative (by invitation only) und diverse Button-Wettbewerbe ist so in den vergangenen (...) Jahren eine beachtliche Anzahl an kleinformativen Kunstwerken zusammengekommen. Verblüffend ist dabei immer wieder die kreative Vielfalt, die sich selbst auf so beschränktem Raum (25mm) zu entfalten vermag. (...) Christine Moosmann, Novum

(...) espaces d’expression restreints à 25 mm de diamètre, les objets supportent un art de la présentation qui ne souffre pas l’étalage. Les séries B.I.O. (by invitation only) accessoirisent l’identité personnelle : à exhiber, à afficher, à affirmer. /
(...) The objects – a rather tiny 25mm-wide space for expression – lend themselves to an art of display that can’t be overdone. The B.I.O. (by invitation only) series accessorise personal identity – exhibiting, displaying, asserting it. (...) Caroline Bouige, Étapes: / Étapes: international
