mischer´traxler is the studio of Vienna-based designers Katharina Mischer (*1982) and Thomas Traxler (*1981).

A former cooperation, Curiosity Cloud - developed for London Design Festival 2015

It takes its cues from Perrier-Jouët’s (partner of the project) connection to the Art Nouveau movement and the traditional use of insect motifs throughout this period. The installation comprises 250 mouth-blown glass globes made by the Viennese glass company Lobmeyr, each containing a single hand-fabricated insect. 25 insect species have been ‘captured’, falling into three categories: extinct, common and newly discovered.
From a distance the majority of the insects are quiet and calm, with just a few moving, their vessels emitting a soft, glowing light. As visitors enter the darkened room and approach the installation the insects come to life, moving more rapidly and emitting noises as they collide with the glass in which they are encapsulated.

Katharina Mischer (*1982) Thomas Traxler(*1981) and their team form mischer‘traxler studio. Based in Vienna they develop and design products, furniture, installations and more, with a focus on experiments, context and conceptual thinking.
Balancing between handcraft and technology, the studio envisions whole systems, new production methods and kinetic or interactive installations that question topics, tell stories or open up new ways of doing things. Projects by mischer’traxler are often playing with uniqueness and form poetic records of their own production or interact with the viewer and evoke unexpected reactions. By using their outcomes as well as a mean of communication, the studio tries to show that Design can be functional, good and beautiful not just in objects but as well in the ideas they represent.
Their works have been displayed in numerous museums and at international festivals and fairs and are to be found in the permanent collections of the Art institute Chicago, the Vitra Design Museum, MK&G Hamburg, MUDAC Lausanne and the MAK Vienna.





In 2024 Ident, Lobmeyr’s drinking set no.287 (project team: Katharina Mischer, Sophia Stoewer, Thomas Traxler) came to life.
