RAUTE - PHOTO FRAME
The grid on this picture frame is a variation on the flag of the German state of Bavaria, but we rotated it and warped the grid to draw attention to the center of the image. Much like the DÜRER frame, it has the effect of giving a distinctive twist to an image, greating a sense of focus and excitement in an image that may have just been a casual snapshot.
Picture can be easily changed by sliding the glass out sideways. Can be hung on the wall in portrait or landscape, includes its own stand, which can be used in portrait or landscape form.

Furniture and Homewares inspired by the Mathematics of Nature
what does that mean?
It means we look at patterns and forms that occur in the natural world; we adapt and play with them as a starting point for all of our designs. Those patterns and principles breathe through our products, bringing them to life, revealing themselves slowly.
Almost all of what we make relies on the user to give it the final touch, to make it his or her own. We work with natural materials such as European oak, Douglas Fir, pure sheet metals, as well as some surprising new materials and processes.
We manufacture our products in small factories that we know well, whether it is
• a facility for the disabled here in Berlin that makes our more simple wooden pieces and picture frames
• a respected artisan in Bohemia who individually crafts our more technically demanding tables
• high tech medical equipment firms in northern Italy whithout whom we would not be able to make the steel, brass and copper pieces
• tradional stone crafts in Pakistan for marble
• small, privately run workshops in China for silicon and glass
We are a firm rooted in Berlin, Germany, operating globally in a spirit of openness and fairness, exporting to 34 countries and counting.
