The design for the Meural frame is inspired by the past and poised for the future. The proportions and materiality are a humble reference to canvas frames and traditional wall decor, with the modernity of current high-end technology devices. Richard Clarkson Studio worked closely with Meural to design two versions of the frame. The first, a more adventurous form, called "Lightbox". Specifically designed to add emphasis to the artwork by creating a floating effect and using a frame within a frame. The second version, available in black or white, is more simplistic. It is symbolic of the classic frame with clean bold lines meeting a flush bookboard and digital surface. All frames are built with consciously-sourced, soft maple wood to add warmth to the touch and eye.
Additional power cord colors are black, white and sky blue. “The approach I took was the idea that a photo frame or painting would still retain its essence and that feeling of being a frame, but would sort of celebrate it’s new evolution in the form of a digital surface." Meural is a celebration of art through a new medium.
