Frama has launched a new collection of furniture and home accessories created in collaboration with Hender Scheme, the Japanese label specialising in revisiting popular footwear designs with a minimalist leather palette. The collection features utilitarian home goods in the vegetable tanned leather distinctive of the Hender Scheme offering, defined by the refined design approach of the Copenhagen studio. 

Frama and Hender Scheme: a marriage of materials

‘It all started from a mutual admiration,’ says Niels Strøyer Christophersen, Frama’s founder and creative director. ‘We wanted to include the categories Frama continuously focuses on: furniture and home objects. The collection features some of Frama’s key pieces, intertwined with leather, which the Hender Scheme is very well-known for.’ 

The collection includes a library cabinet in oak, a stool in steel and an aluminium side table. Each material is combined with Hender Scheme’s leather, and the result is a combination of industrial design codes and craft-based approach. For Frama, this collection also marks its first foray into wearable objects, with a pair of slippers that, as Strøyer Christophersen notes, combines the two brands’ universes. Alongside the furniture, the two brands have also created a scent diffuser featuring three red spheres made of Korean soil within a leather bowl, and a minimalist wall clock, a recurring Hender Scheme design.

‘Hender Scheme has become a leather expert, whereas Frama works with several materials, from wood and steel to aluminium – always trying to find experts specialising in each of these materials and keeping the craftsmanship in mind,’ adds Strøyer Christophersen.

The inclusion of recurring Frama designs added to the timeless nature of the collection: the ‘Shelf Library’ cabinet, for example, is designed to fit within the Danish brand’s existing shelving range, a leather curtain discreetly concealing the storage box underneath. The ‘Tasca’ table, referencing classic bistro tables with its compact form and circular top, is a sturdy marvel of industrial design, the leather imagined to enrich its forms by enveloping the central rod. The ‘Adam’ stool, another recurring Frama design, is expanded in its functionality with the addition of a leather basket, making it suitable to use in every room of the home. §
