Frama and Our Food Stories – Dialogues – Book
Within the different collections of: Permanent, Studio, St. Pauls and the recent Study Collection – Frama Studio operates in various creative fields and directions from Furniture, Lighting, Apothecary, Books, Apparel and Kitchens. They all have in common that they focus on natural materials, simple geometry and a general appreciation of permanency. The pieces within the collections signal a return to basics, where the design appearance aims to be honest and simplified. Working within the area of design archetypes, Frama represents a graphical and straight forward aesthetic approach to design.
Besides offering the variety of the different Collections, the Frama practice offers complete Interior Management and develops site-specific design solutions and curate a sur- measure scenography in close collaboration with architects and users, from the starting idea until its final materialisation.
The Frama headquarters and Studio Store is located in central Copenhagen within the historic and protected neighbourhood of Nyboder. Former home of the St. Pauls Apotek established in 1878. The synergy between the past and present elements of the space is a direct link to how Frama defines their main interest within the creative field as a dialogue between two opposite poles; classical and contemporary approach – between digital and analogue production.
“This book is our way of celebrating a half-decade of personal relationships and creative dialogues. In three distinct conversational sections,Frama and Our Food Stories – Dialogues – Book invites readers to consider how our natural and built environments become the spaces that define our context, how our food traditions can connect us with both the past and the future, and how a diversity of individual creative voices can come together to form a powerful chorus of inspiration for all those willing to listen. Featuring 6 architectural and design case studies, 14 interviews with craftspeople and innovators from around the world, and 19 new recipes from the team at our food stories, Frama and Our Food Stories – Dialogues – Book is not simply a book about Frama. It’s not another book about design. In fact, Dialogues is not a book about any one particular theme, any single discipline, or any one overarching philosophy of life or art. Instead, this is a book about the value of creative exchange and the power of listening. WithFrama and Our Food Stories – Dialogues – Book, we invite you into this conversation. Including full color photographs and illustrations. Text in English and German. Design by Frama Studio, 2017. St. Pauls Collection.”Kristina
