The CameraFrame is a handcrafted piece of home decor that blends camera components into a hangable piece of wall art for photographers.
The concept behind the CameraFrame is to allow photographers to literally showcase their passion for the art through a piece of home decor that includes all of the pieces of an actual camera in what the company describes as a “visually stunning way.” The company also includes a QR code in the piece that allows viewers to see a 3D version of the artwork to learn more about its features and design.
It’s not an entirely new idea. There are similar products available for a range of consumer electronic products, including several that are made by Grid Studio that are based on classic smartphones.
“CameraFrame is not just a piece of art, but a testament to your passion for photography,” the company says. “[It] is the perfect addition to any photographer’s home or studio, providing a visually striking and unique piece of decor.”
CameraFrame’s founder says that the idea for the project started from a fascination with the cameras that were at the core of his profession.
“I was always fascinated by the intricate components that went into making each shot possible. I would often disassemble my cameras just to see how everything fit together, but I always struggled to find a way to display these parts in a way that was both aesthetically pleasing and educational.”
They created the CameraFrame to be a solution to that desire, and the company says that it puts significant emphasis on making sure the quality of its frames are visible. CameraFrame says that each piece is crafted with high-quality materials that are designed to stand the test of time — specifically, the company says it is a mix of wood, metal, and plastic.
“The disassembled camera components are carefully chosen and arranged in a way that showcases their beauty and functionality. The sensor, shutter, cover, mainboard, flat and various electronic boards and mechanical parts are all authentic components from real cameras. Each part is carefully cleaned and polished before being arranged in the frame,” the company says.
“The result is a one-of-a-kind piece of art that celebrates the beauty and complexity of camera technology.”
CameraFrame has launched on Kickstarter with two frame models: a digital or an analog option. The company doesn’t specify which cameras are used for each, and it is possible they vary depending on available parts.
Either the digital or the film version of the CameraFrame is available to back for as little as about $277, a 35% discount from what the company intends to list them for if the project is successfully backed. The company intends to ship finished pieces of art by September.
