Caroline Olsson : Epaulette

Epaulette frame system designed by Norwegian designer Caroline Olsson, together with Ida Noemi.

‘With Epaulette we wanted to create a frame system with a greater flexibility than traditional frames, focusing on the corners. The corners of a frame is what defines the silhouette and could 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. 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 epaulettes and enhance the expression of the frame in a subtile, but characteristic way.’
