mischer'traxler: framed for kvadrat

‘framed’ by mischer’traxler for kvadrat’s hallingdal project 65 kvadrat hallingdal fabric, oak, grey varnish image by angela moore

‘framed’ is a collection of interior objects developed by vienna-based studio mischer’traxler designed for danish textile company kvadrat and their hallingdal project 65. the concept references picture-framing where several sheets of colorful fabric are clamped within wooden mounts. the material is held in position only by pressure and friction which allows changeability through swapping textiles and also permits complete disassembly into all the different components for recycling. grey is chosen for the timber structure to ensure that the cloth is the sole vibrant ingredient for the furniture, which can be layered and arranged in varying ways.

  • These are really nice–simplicity of form and formally complex. I wouldn’t mind seeing these evolve with some diversity in texture throughout the textile selection, maybe some leather. Just sayin.
