Chances are that you see this magazine as professional literature. You draw inspiration from its pages and catch up on the latest developments with an eye to raising the level of your own work. But I doubt that you read Frame at the office. The office is mainly a place for meetings and brainstorming sessions. A lot of your ‘work’ gets done at home or on the way – maybe in an airport lounge, where you’re not the only one who flips open a laptop. Occasionally when that happens, you might wonder whether a physical office is something we still need. And, if we do, what are its requirements now that we carry our office in a handy bag that allows us to work anytime, anywhere? Imagine travelling back in time,…

concrete comfort

Standing in a confined space surrounded by nothing but concrete is more reminiscent of a prison cell than a spa. Nevertheless, Matter Design’s radiant bath installation, Microtherme, offered the experience to those who attended Bigger than a Breadbox, Smaller than a Building, a BSA-curated exhibition in Boston, Massachusetts. Entering the room that showcased Microtherme, visitors were confronted with a hovering birch-plywood structure containing – and shielding from view – the entirety of the futuristic bath. Childish curiosity led many to slide beneath the box and find themselves surrounded by concrete. Small openings within the dense interior environment permitted them to stand and be encased in a thermal and sensorial delight that was somewhat comparable to the feeling you might have while wading in a pool of voluptuous concrete. The designers used a…

up in smoke

If you thought smoking had gone out of fashion, well, puff again. American journalists Monica Khemsurov, Eviana Hartman, and Su Wu have resurrected the design and supply of high-end cigarette accessories with the launch of their online shop, Tetra. Smoker or not, you’ll have to admit that the items on offer are as tasteful as they are tempting. Ashtrays laced with 24-carat gold, finely crafted pipes and ornamental lighters are just a lick’s worth of what Tetra offers. In their raison d’être, the brand’s founders say they intend to ‘elevate the aesthetics of the smoking experience’ with products that recall romantic images of mid-20th-century design celebrities such as Dieter Rams, Marianne Brandt and Enzo Mari. A brand established in the face of taboo, Tetra openly celebrates the tradition and allure…


2 Kith 1 Prada 3 Molly Goddard As ultra-skinny mannequins continue to dominate the runways, food might not be the first thing we associate with high fashion. This season, however, clothing brands are debunking clichés and serving up some fashionable feasts. Milan is the most obvious setting for a combination of fashion and food – two industries rooted in Italian culture. Prada ? cherishes the city’s heritage by acquiring 80 per cent of iconic pastry shop Pasticceria Marchesi, an establishment dating back to 1824. Now a welcome addition to Milan’s upscale Via Montenapoleone, the new location boasts an interior designed by architect Roberto Baciocchi. Snarkitecture ? revamps the Brooklyn location of multi-brand store Kith, now enhanced by a slightly unusual feature. In the space between footwear and apparel, shoppers find a cereal bar with an…

turn tables

Building a reputation for his original use of materials, Lex Pott launched another cunningly clever product at Dutch Design Week in October. Pott singled out edge banding – an element of contemporary furniture that’s commonly used to mask lower-quality materials – and transformed it into the point of departure for his Chroma collection. By using different colours of edge banding on different faces of the products, Pott developed pieces that look new from every angle. The inclusion of reflective metal laminates in the material palette (Pott selected existing items from Abet Laminati and Homapal) allows certain tones to bounce off others, forming layers of colour. The collection – which was commissioned by Baars & Bloemhoff – may not be customizable in the strictest sense, but Pott caters to the trend…
