Boisbuchet summer workshop 2016
with mischer'traxler 03 - 09 July

We will give a workshop in Boisbuchet this year from July 3rd - 9th and are already quite sure that it will be a very nice week.

The titel of the workshop is: "designing an encyclopedia of unique objects" - What if we have to explain a specific term without knowing it and just use our phantasy to define an object? A task that will trigger our imagination in order to get to unique results.

exhibition
SLOW | Schloss Hollenegg
08.may 2016 - 10.mayl 2016

An exhibition that tries to offer a new, more positive reading of slow by presenting design objects that offer a slower interpretation of time by forcing the viewer to interact at a slower than normal pace, and sit, observe, think.

During a design residency last October we especially developed our latest project 'Isochrone' for Hollenegg. We tried to capture slow in a process that represents the rythm and pace of this special castle.
more images on this project will follow soon.

project:
'Day-by-day' is a hand knotted rug which is designed to visualize human labour and the working time of the maker to produce one carpet. Each working day is translated into the pattern of the rug and by doing so, each piece becomes as unique as its maker while at the same time unveiling the exact amount of working days per carpet.

project:
'small Discoveries', is an extended collaboration between mischer'traxler and Perrier-Jouët that started with the project 'ephemerā' and is continued throughout 2015 with more projects.

The first 'small discoveries' for Perrier-Jouët is a gift-packaging including a Blason Rosé cuvée and two very special champagne flutes.
An insect engraved on the inside of the glass creates a visual point that encourages effervescent. The delicate engraving means the champagne bubbles cluster at the design, and spiral upwards through the wine like an optical game.
