    design museum Gent

Based in Vienna, we design objects, furniture, processes, installations and more, with a focus on experiments and conceptual thinking within the given context.

new project:

ratio

a project with a focus on the sourcing and exploitation of metals from metal ores and their use in our everyday life. The series of small furniture pieces illustrate the ratio of  hidden metal in specific ores. Each object consists of two parts – the metal ore and the amount of metal which could be extracted from it.
The objects are part of the exhibition Made in — crafts and design narratives, a research, design and heritage initiative encouraging collaboration and knowledge exchange between traditional craftsmen and contemporary designers.

new project:

prospects

an installation that makes use of human curiosity to communicate various important aspects of contemporary design tasks in a playful way.

curating

mak design lab

mischer’traxler studio was invited to co-curated the new layout and content of the permanent Design exhibition at the MAK.
Objects from the MAK-collection were combined with loaned pieces to discuss contemporary topics.

new project:

sudden reality & the world beyond

Reacting to Hermès’ 2019 theme “in the pursuit of dream”, we designed two different concepts as window displays for Hermès. The various scenographies were installed in all shops across Japan in the winter season 2019.

permanent installation

 projects that often balance between handcraft and technology, depict nature, tell stories, raise questions or trigger discussions.

 

interaction

often triggers immediate reactions full of emotions and honesty. Its great to see how people of different age and backgrounds react similarly with smiles and wonder.

experimenting

and a hands-on attitude is a main component in most mischer’traxler projects. Some projects are just possible through try-outs and making – they just can not be imagined by a sketch. When browsing this website you’ll find some making of images and videos that give a glimpse of how some projects came into being.

conceptual

many mischer’traxler projects are based on concepts that follow a defined thought. Due to that some of the projects are systematic and can be applied in various scales or can have different shapes, yet still follow the same concept.
