RAM’N – respecting creativity

Ram'n

Today is a day where I can hardly wait to publish my post. To show you something really fabulous.

Marie-Louise and her husband Thomas are RAM’N. An innovative frame that lets you hang your kids’ art in just 2 seconds and can keep up to 50 drawings! Yes… I know… this is THE solution to all the ‘what to do with all the paintings’ questions.

Let me share the story about RAM’N, it is one of those that remind me why I started this blog and why I love this industry. The small, independent designers, brands… the ones that put so much love and passion in their work:

Thomas, who is a designer and carpenter, wanted to acknowledge the creativity of his first born. Framing her lovely drawings. But you want to put up the drawings quickly {you know how it is otherwise, they end up in the corner of your kitchen waiting for their turn forever} and the product also had to contain them somehow. {one drawing is nice but after 2 days you usually have 20 piling up}

Thomas thought, ‘I make it myself’ and he started up in the small cellar of their small apartment. He found wood, acrylic and said he would make 20 pieces in the cellar and Marie-Louise gave him a deadline {01.04.2013}.

On 01.10.2013 he sold the first 10 pieces to Louisiana Museum and that was the first blue print.

In the cellar he also found bike tires which he used instead of the rubber we use today and instead of the felt we had some old carpet from my mothers cottage. My mother who is 83 years old striped the acrylic whilst she was watching TV and in the beginning Thomas parents treated all the frames with oil. He wanted to get in the recycling trend, which made good sense to both of us. So the first year it became a good Christmas present and we made about 300. Today we have made 5500 and Thomas has touched each of them one way or another.

Today the two found another solution for the rubber and the felt and both of them are working on RAM’N full time.

It is a wonderful and personal story isn’t? Makes these frames even more special. They do come in some serious great packaging and you can get them in various colours and wood types.

They are very easy to install and love that you can choose portrait or landscape style easily. The little touch of colour gives it a little extra magic and ‘chic’.

Check this video to see a full demonstration on how RAM’N works and how easy and well thought out it is.
