Inspired by limited editions, the project realLimited connects limitation back to realistic facts. It is about limited editions that reflect limitations in reality: untouched nature, maintained traditions, old craftsmanship, languages and dialects… The main idea is to get inspired from these limitations, to start using and revitalizing them and to encourage their further being or to mirror and interpret the limitation, if use is not directly possible. realLimited should show that Design can be functional and beautiful, not just in an object, but also for the idea it stands for. The realLimited concept can be applied to several topics as for example: wild nature, old nearly forgotten techniques and craftsmanship or endangered domestic animals, plants and their products.

Katharina Mischer and Thomas Traxler form mischer‘traxler studio. Based in Vienna they develop and design objects, furniture, processes, installations and more, thereby focusing on experiments and conceptual thinking within a given context. Balancing between handcraft and technology, they envision whole systems, new production methods and kinetic or interactive installations that question topics, tell stories or open up new ways of doing things. The results are often playing with uniqueness and some of their projects are poetic records that interact with the viewer and evoke unexpected reactions. Exhibitions on contemporary Design and Art displayed their projects in Museums such as the Boijmans van Boiningen, the Design Museum London, the Triennale Milano, Cafa Art Museum Bejing, Mudac Lausanne and more as well as on International festivals and fairs. Projects by mischer'traxler are to be found in the permanent collections of the Art institute Chicago, the Vitra Design Museum and the MAK Vienna, among others.
