Freedome is inspired by a utopian enterprise from the middle of the 20th century: the 1955 Asian-African Conference, held in the Indonesian city of Bandung. Twenty-nine Asian and African countries attended this summit, representing one-and-a-half billion people, and agreed a ten-point declaration on the promotion of world peace and cooperation. The dome, made of coir and derived from the mandala, has at its peak a floating bowl, seemingly defying gravity. The bowl hovers over the dome to suggest an 'open satellite', an informational hub free of political standpoints and territorial boundaries. It represents the continuing search for the principles enshrined in the Bandung Charter: independence, equality, humanity and peace.
