Katharina Mischer (1982) and Thomas Traxler (1981) form Studio mischer‘traxler.
Based in Vienna they develop and design products, furniture, installations and more, with a focus on experiments, context and conceptual thinking.
Balancing between hand craft and technology, they envision whole systems, processes and new production methods that indicate sustainability and the relevance of nature. Part of their Design process is to examine, experiment, analyse and reject. This critical view often questions and affects the relation between producer, object and owner. "Why and what for" are often the main concerns before a new project comes into being, whilst "What if" ceases in new interpretations and different possibilities. Their Results often make use of unexpected materials and are often characterized by external inputs, for example the condition of the weather or the usage of the existing.
