shared state of affairs

How we work, buy and relax – topics that we at Frame have always found intriguing. We make a magazine for professionals who are engaged in the design of spaces for these public activities. So why an issue of Frame that features housing – a private affair? The answer is simple: we’re exploring a relatively new type of residence that does involve professionals. I’m talking about co-living, also known as shared living, an increasingly commercial version of the often idealistic communes that had their heyday in the 1970s. Today’s co-living complexes start with a developer who commissions a spatial-design expert whose main job is to create amply proportioned communal spaces: from lobby and cinema to spa and roof terrace. The occupant’s private unit often comprises no more than a small…

A Dutch designer celebrates the process of ageing with a tactile seating collection MILAN DESIGN WEEK SURFACES – Rotterdam-based designer Adrianus Kundert’s playful Trans-saddles have a tactile appearance that begs to be touched. The seats – presented at Ventura Lambrate’s Envisions exhibition during Milan Design Week – reflect his belief that ‘richness comes with age’. Kundert encourages materials to demonstrate their age by employing surfaces and techniques that erode or fade with use. One example is made of porous stone and finished in layers of colour, which are gradually revealed in the areas of the seat that endure the most use. In a throwaway society where many of us are quick to replace anything that looks remotely past its sell-by date, the Dutch designer’s approach is refreshing. By championing a product’s lifespan,…


Frame teams up with Eyes on Talents to highlight award-winning designers. Eyes on Talents is a by-invitation-only online platform used by innovative brands to discover and connect with top creatives from a range of disciplines. frame.eyesontalents.com German product designer Philipp Beisheim pumps fresh air into pop-culture icons Is there such a thing as a universal design language? If so, what does it tell us about the world we live in? PHILIPP BEISHEIM: People have been trying to formulate a universal design language for decades. During the Bauhaus movement, the language of the time expressed concerns of affordability and a push towards mass production – ideas later challenged by postmodernists, who argued that modernist design was boring. When viewed from a contemporary perspective, however, postmodernism lacks the clarity of thought and sophistication of…

LUCA NICHETTO: ‘I felt as if I was living like Tom Sawyer when growing up. I was born in Venice but raised on Murano, a super-small island. Because of the water surrounding us, my friends and I would imagine we were pirates. Looking back, I think it was a perfect environment.’ ‘Murano is known for its glass industry. My grandfather was a glass-blower, my mother a decorator. At least 95 per cent of the people I was connected to in Murano were linked to the glass industry, so creativity was something absolutely normal to me. Probably what I’m doing now is because of being raised amid all that activity. I never decided to become a designer. I just went with the flow and started designing glass pieces.’ ‘My mom was into design.…


WHEN today’s consumer goes looking for a new kitchen, topping his list of requirements is the best price/quality ratio, which sooner or later leads him to the Swedish furniture chain with a familiar blue and yellow logo. He takes a few days off, starts each morning with a big breakfast and, with a handy father-in-law and a bit of luck, by the end of the week he’s heating a pan of soup on the hob and stacking his used bowl in the dishwasher. On the other hand, if he opts for a serious built-in kitchen, those few days will turn into a year of unpaid leave, and he will have to hire a team of professionals with whom he agrees to meet on a weekly basis. The first consulant is, of course,…
