Ultraframe: New Work From UM Project
View Slideshow

As its name might suggest, Ultraframe is a study in well, frames.

Newly debuted by UM Project, Ultraframe explores texture, material, and structure at the joining of function and fiction. Ultraframe is also a study in contrasts — stiff, geometric frames are juxtaposed with soft, curvy covers, shells, or inserts. As a result, all the pieces have an otherworldly feel that seems familiar yet foreign at the same time. UM Project kept the colors subdued as well, so that the rich and carefully chosen materials could shine.
