FRAMA: Where The Imaginative & The Practical Meet

Discover designs that inspire the senses and encourage mindful living

FRAMA is the latest addition to Batten Home, a brand known for a uniquely warm and honest aesthetic due to an emphasis on natural materials, simple geometries, and uncompromising quality. FRAMA’s furniture and lifestyle objects inspire the senses and encourage mindful living.


FRAMA is rooted in Scandinavian design, dedicated to building pieces that last for years to come. Heirloom-quality design requires a thoughtful production process, and FRAMA’s is unique, operating small-scale manufacturing by producing designs in lower volumes at smaller production facilities throughout Europe. Small-scale production lines benefit local communities while ensuring quality and consistency. FRAMA ensures durability and strength by turning to natural materials such as solid wood, marble, clay, terracotta, and natural textiles.

Here’s a look at FRAMA’s design philosophy:

“We believe thoughtful design can awaken curiosity and inspire discovery— a design philosophy stimulating the senses and conveying feelings of balance and meaning. We hope that all of our work encourages a slower, more reflective lifestyle and supports the well-being of all. We are enriched by our clients and strengthened by the diversity of our team and collaborators. Through the convergence of customer feedback, client aspirations, and creative problem solving our multidisciplinary studio creates objects and projects focusing on utilitarian living and self-care. We approach each project with empathy, trust, and respect for diverse points of view—meanwhile, the continuous curiosity, passion, and dedication help us through the relentless pursuit to create long-lasting work.”

With this philosophy in mind, FRAMA approaches the design process with “curiosity, experimentation, intuition, and a quest for authenticity.” For inspiration, FRAMA turns to four experiential influences: travel, nature, spaces, and stories. Together, these influences help to form a unique character and distinctive atmosphere tied to a specific place and time.

AML Stool

AML Stool - FRAMA at Batten Home

The petite AML Stool can be used as a side table, a bedside stool, or a small platform to display sculptures. Taking cues from vintage milking  stool designs, it comes in a natural pine or dark pine finish.

“I like the fact that something that was formerly a milking stool works so well in its new context,” says Andreas Martin-Löf, founder of Andreas Martin-Löf Arkitekter, who collaborated with FRAMA on the design. “The size makes it perfect for freighting and dispatching in today’s e-trade, and everyone has room for a stool they can put some magazines on by their bed or use as an extra shelf in the bathroom.”

“Even though it is a small object, the AML Stool is essential to Frama’s permanent collection,” says Niels Strøyer Christophersen, founder of FRAMA. “Its simplicity and versatility make it a handy piece in line with our values and visual identity. Whether it’s for placing objects, stacking books, or seating next to the coffee table, it is a very accessible and sculptural item. The reintroduction of the Stool is a symbolic way of returning to our roots and rediscovering our principles."

Low Stool 01

Kim Richardt's KR180 Daybed uses the contrast of vertical and horizontal lines to create a structurally pure form. Soft natural linen is fitted around a dense three-layered foam mattress, making it appear that a pure rectangle is laid atop a solid white oiled oak frame that appears monumental, like the silhouette of a bridge.

This piece can work in an array of living spaces and is the perfect place to read a book, lounge, take a nap, or whatever else inspires you. It functions perfectly as a guest bed! The KR180 Daybed arrives flat-packed and is easy to assemble without tools.2

Crafted with high-quality spruce sourced from responsibly-managed forests, the couch and chair both come in a natural oiled finish, dark finish, or terracotta finish.

“Taking inspiration from Kaare Klint – the father of Danish Design – we wanted to create our own interpretation of box-formed seating,’ says FRAMA founder and Niels Strøyer Christophersen, “and by focusing on simple lines and the purity of natural materials, we believe that The Atelier Chair and Couch are the perfect intimate spaces for study and reflection.”

There are countless styling options with the Atelier Couch and Atelier Chair. Place them freestanding in a large room, against a wall, or group together to create a conversation corner.
