LeveL is a kinetic light installation, adopting the metaphor of a mobile for an utopian model of an ‘ideal system’. A delicately balanced pendant object is suspended in the room, reaching its maximum luminosity when in perfect equilibrium. Every movement occurring in the mobile — whether introduced by visitors or unpredictable elements — transforms the light object’s shape and brilliance.LeveL can be switched from sensitive mode into chandelier mode, in which the piece shines continuously to enlighten a space.
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 Beuningen, 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.
