Epaulette is a frame system with a greater flexibility than traditional frames, focusing on the corners. The sides of the frame are held together by L-shaped corner profiles in copper, liberating the frame from any screws and fixed formats. The copper profiles are slid on to the corners as épaulettes and enhance the expression of the frame in a subtile, but characteristic way. The corners of a frame is what defines the silouette and could be looked upon as the shoulders of a picture. Epaulette is the french word for a shoulder piece, which can be used as decoration or to show the rank of a uniform.
Both designers were invited to exhibit with the Norwegian exhibition Tingenes Tilstand (the state of things www.k-l-u-b-b-e-n.no/tt/) and decided to collaborate on a project towards the exhibition.
