Katharina Mischer and Thomas Traxler form mischer‘traxler studio. Based in Vienna, they balance between handcraft and technology and design objects, products, furniture, production processes, kinetic or interactive installations and more, thereby focusing on experiments and conceptual thinking within a given context. By using three-dimensional Design often as a mean of communication, the studio proofs that objects can tell stories, raise questions and convey messages.


Their work has won several international awards, has been displayed in exhibitions on contemporary Design and Art in museums around the world and can be found in the permanent collections of the Art Institute Chicago, the Vitra Design Museum and the MAK Vienna, among others. Katharina and Thomas frequently give talks and workshops in various Universities and Institutions. Additionally, they recently co-curated the new adaptation of the permanent MAK DESIGN LAB.
