Eröffnet mit uns die BERLIN DESIGN WEEK mit dem BERLIN DESIGN DAY!

Lernt außergewöhnliche Berliner Designer*innen kennen und entdeckt, welche Stories hinter innovativen Lösungen und Produkten stecken, die Berlin zur Hauptstadt der deutschen Kreativen machen.

In zehn Vorträgen beleuchten wir, was die Berliner Designszene so besonders macht. Danach stehen Netzwerken, Ideen austauschen und eine Führung durch unsere Ausstellungen auf 4 Etagen im Industriedenkmal Peter-Behrens-Bau auf dem Programm.

Wir denken interdisziplinär! Wenn euer Herz für Designtheorie, Produkt, Grafik oder Digitales schlägt, oder ihr einfach an kritischem Denken, Zukunftslösungen und Inspiration made in Berlin interessiert seid: Bei uns seid ihr richtig.
Der Eintritt ist frei, für Erfrischungen ist gesorgt, und unsere Shuttles bringen euch vom Leipziger Platz oder vom Polestar Space zu unserer Location.

Experience as a question of mere Design? Reflections on the Philosophy of Design

Reframing Futures – but how?
Futures Literacy is on everyone’s lips: according to the World Economic Forum, only with the ability to imagine multiple futures will we be able to find new answers to the pressing challenges of our time. But how do we develop the capability to experiment with our anticipatory assumptions to enable different images of the future in the here and now? Louisa will share one innovative approach.

The power of collectives
MATTER of COURSE is a Berlin-based collective of eleven independent female designers founded in 2021. They work in the dynamic intersections of design, art, and craftsmanship. This allows us to create long-lasting, eye-catching, and unique objects that blend passion, artistry, and uncompromising design ethics. They are committed to upholding and refining traditional techniques as well as responsible use of resources.

Beyond Vision: Designing Sensory Futures
Design amplifies vision. Sensory design inspires ways of negotiating the world through touch, sound, smell, taste, and bodily position. What emerges in between? The artifacts, experiences, and spaces of the future fuse mind, body, and sensation—and forge new forms, feelings, and dialects for design.

The hand is the window onto the mind
To touch something beyond a keyboard means to create something that does not consist of an obscure system of zeros and ones, but one that can also be grasped with our senses. Why we need to re-connect to the real world and how that makes us better designers.
