A brief intro. via their website :

“Open Design Club”
We like to think of ourselves as a virtual design studio, which also offers the opportunity to present and share ideas and open source design products. Everybody can become a collaborator of the the Open Design Club by contributing designs and ideas or by producing and selling the products presented by the Open Design Club.

“Join the Club”
We want to inspire you to become active and creative. We offer instructions for design products you can download and produce at home. The products of the Open Design Club are licensed under a creative commons license which means, that you can copy, sample, modify and even sell them if you want. We believe that removing copyrights from our designs will inspire creativity and result in multiple new designs. We share our ideas, our know how and we hope, that you’ll contribute, too.
