'Rumkugelbahn' by mischer'traxler

During this year’s DMY Festival our friends from Vienna, the bright design couple mischer’traxler, presented their newest installation, a marble run “powered” by traditional Viennese rum truffles.

“bkm develops its products through research, analytically, with a view to the concrete deficit of existing solutions. Exploration incorporates archetypes, roots from cultural history, and social developments. Also purposefully integrated is the heritage of design history.”

With ‘New Veneer’ bkm and RoHol developed various methods to change veneer surfaces and applied them to different types of storing furniture.
