Mischer:traxler develop and design objects, furniture, processes, installations and more, striking a balance between handcraft and technology.
Their practice is often guided by innovation and yet built in a manner so simplistic it provokes wonder in the viewer. As a result their outcomes are often playful and experimental, inviting a level of interactivity that questions topics, tell stories or opens up new ways of doing things. They aim to demonstrate that Design can be functional, good and beautiful, not just in its objects but in its ideas.
Katharina Mischer and Thomas Traxler set up mischer:traxler studio in 2009 after studying product and furniture Design at the NDC St.Pölten and Kingston University.
