out of office

I’m writing these words on the day before our summer holiday begins. I’ve answered most of my e-mails, taken advantage of online check-in, and will soon finish packing. As I examine the prints depicting this issue’s main theme – hospitality – my mind wanders to the first time we featured hotels in Frame. It must have been the late ’90s, and I remember introducing the phenomenon ‘design hotel’ to our readers. Later we spoke with Ian Schrager, reviewed hotels designed by Philippe Starck, and marvelled at the beauty and elegance of this new genre of accommodation. In those days, most travellers stayed in grubby backpacker hostels, family-run hotels in the countryside, tidy but tacky Ibis-type chains intended for businesspeople, and pretentious resort hotels for the upper classes. Every demographic had its…

Witness the Matter of Motion stool in the making with the digital magazine An explorative design process uses centrifugal motion to shape one-of-a-kind stools FURNITURE – Israel-based industrial designer Maor Aharon takes production into his own hands with Matter of Motion. Aharon’s experimental making process involves casting colourful polymer resins with the use of centrifugal force and combining them with materials such as wood and metal. Guided by two main ideas – ‘freezing the moment’ and being a ‘one-man production line’ – Aharon produced a collection of stools, no two alike. The seats feature an array of shades and surfaces in novel variations, each with a distinctive character. According to the designer, the series ‘highlights the capabilities of a technique’ in which factors such as velocity and acceleration clearly influence the outcome.…


Raphaël Pluvinage and Marion Pinaffo turn electronic gizmos into educational games WINNERS OF THE AUDI TALENTS AWARD 2016 Papier Machine materializes and demystifies electronics. Can you elaborate? MARION PINAFFO: We wanted to demonstrate that behind the magic of today’s electronic devices is a hidden world of materials, forms and even smells. The project arose from our attempt to re-create the components of such gadgets on paper. Using basic paper compositions, we developed the concept for Papier Machine, a booklet containing a dozen electronic toys made of paper – to be cut, coloured, assembled or torn. Papier Machine is a response to the growing complexity and apparent mysticism of technology; we felt it was essential to highlight the tangible properties of intricate electronic systems. Should technology be hidden from view or shown off? Our modern…

storage units

STORAGE SPACE – almost nobody has enough of it. I’m the last one you’ll hear claiming that everything was better in the old days, but I clearly remember the brown-stained oak wardrobe in my grandparents’ bedroom, a large piece of furniture with three doors. On the left side were my grandma’s clothes: dresses, skirts, blouses and suits hanging from a rail and, beneath it, several shelves for her folded woollens. Two drawers held what I assume were her unmentionables, and the bottom shelf was reserved for shoes. My grandpa’s section of the wardrobe, which was behind the door to the right, was arranged in more or less the same way, but his side had a selection of neckties on the door and a drawer full of neatly pressed handkerchiefs. The…
