We've been admirers of FRAMA since we had the Anderssen & Voll Garden Works launch party at Kollected by in Oslo several years ago. Shop owners and stylists stylists Kråkvik & D'Orazio have been long time supporters of FRAMA.
We then visited the Frama showroom for the first time in Copenhagen, and were further amazed with their poetic blend of rational industrial design and craft. Their work conjures for us images of black and white photographs of old French ateliers, studios furnished with functional and strong furniture yet visually delicate and slender. Industrial yet at the same time softened with natural materials like oak and leather.
We hope you will enjoy these pieces as much as we do.
Design by Architect Per Holland Bastrup, 1989. Signature Collection.
Even though the Triangolo chair was created several decades ago it goes hand in hand with the Frama principles of strong geometric forms and simple lines.
Circle Mirror and Adam stool in oak.
Occasionally we see a form that speaks on its own. The round mirrors are an example of just this. A classic round mirror with beveled edges mounted to a solid oak back. Visible screws celebrate the analogue approach to this 50's inspired piece. The visual purity of the round shape is honoured by its material composition.
Rivet Box Table and Rivet Round Side Table
Aluminium can be difficult to weld and screw. With that in mind a riveting/tenon technique was developed for the Rivet project. This was also a way to experiment with different variations of visual assembling. The straightforward design is laser cut and hammered by hand, which puts it in a category between craftsmanship and industrial production.
Frama St. Pauls Collection of Apothecary
includes handwash, hand lotion and scents.
Apothecary is made locally in Denmark. Notes of Sandalwood, Cedar Wood, and Ylang Ylang.
The Apothecary collection is produced with 100% natural ingredients and in Italian glass bottles.
The Adam Stool collection is inspired by industrial design, an artist's studio, and a workshop. The functionality and simplicity of the design, combined with strong materials, gives these stools a structural and utilitarian approach.
Sutoa means to contain in Japanese.
Sutoa drawer fulfills the aesthetic look of a storage chest.
It is based on a discreet steel frame combined with wooden stack-able drawers in massive oak. Boxes of different sizes serves various purposes to contain. The gap between the boxes becomes the handle and small wheels at the back is very useful to change the placement of Sutoa.
Also pictured is the Frama shallow shelf.
Designed by Nicholai Wiig-Hansen
Suitable as a coffee table or side table where the contrast between the soft warm cork, meets the cold smooth marble. The distinction between the two shapes gives the impression of two worlds meeting one another.
