‘real limited’ by mischer’traxler is about limited editions that reflect limitations in reality: untouched nature, maintained traditions, old craftsmanship, languages and dialects.

in the first executed ‘real limited’-project endangered species are translated into limited editions of products. each single product, or element of a product represents one individual being in nature. so far mischer’traxler have created a limited fungi shelf for droog design and moths lamp based on this concept.

a percentage of the money generated by selling the products goes to environmental projects that try to save the selected species. ideally the editions of products would be re-edited every few years, mirroring the species development. if the population increases in number, the edition does as well.

‘real limited- fungi’ was on display during the DMY berlin design festival 09.
