Alice Rawstorn: Design as an Attitude

Alice Rawsthorn explores the role of experimentation in design. From tackling the environmental crisis by helping us to live more sustainably, to revitalising local communities with social and humanitarian projects - and its use as a tool for political activism.

‘Whenever human beings have acted to change their ways of life, they did it as designers’. She places design to the forefront, arguing the extent to which it influences every aspect of our lives and that it is now more important than ever, as a new generation of politically engaged designers to fulfil László Moholy-Nagy’s belief that ‘design is an attitude, not a profession’.

Alice Rawsthorn is a leading public speaker on design and an award-winning design critic. Her weekly design column for The New York Times was syndicated worldwide for over a decade. She is the author of several books, including the critically acclaimed Hello World: Where Design Meets Life. As guest of UdK-Berlin’s project group Design & Social Context Alice Rawsthorn will speak in the Kunstgewerbemuseum in Berlin about her latest book: Design as an Attitude.

She will discuss how design is responding to an age of intense economic, political, and ecological instability and taking on an increasingly ambitious and eclectic role in helping us to address the major challenges of an exceptionally turbulent and ominous time: from the climate emergency and refugee crisis, to inequality, the crisis in social justice and accelerating advances in technology. She believes that design can be a powerful tool to tackle all of those issues, but only if it is applied intelligently and sensitively.

Stefan Diez: Design Varieties and Opportunities

‘The practice of Diez Office is characterized by innovation through technical expertise, instinct and a passion for experimentation’.

As the son of a cabinetmaker, where he received his first training, his approach to design is always firmly rooted in the workshop. For him the process of making something becomes more and more important in his work.

Stefan Diez graduated from the State Academy of Fine Arts Stuttgart, at a time when digital methods had come up. He founded his own industrial design studio in 2003 in Munich and his first projects are marked by globalization and outsourcing production in Asia. Nowadays a wide range of materials, manufacturing processes and networked work make an experimental work carried by passion possible.

Dedicated to transforming ideas into actual products with great diligence and proficiency Stefan Diez works - together with his team - in various fields of design ranging from furniture and tableware to industrial design, as well as exhibition design in collaboration with internationally renowned manufacturers such as e15, emu, Hay, Magis, Rosenthal, Thonet, Vibia, Wagner and Wilkhahn, and others.

Many of his products have received international design awards, including the Designpreis der Bundesrepublik Deutschland’ the IF Gold Award’ and the Red Dot best of the best Award’. From 2007 to 2014, he was professor of industrial design at the University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe (HFG), before joining the School of Industrial Design Lund, Sweden, in 2015. Since 2018 Stefan Diez is head of Industrial Design ID1 at Die Angewandte in Vienna and the work of his students is on display during the Berlin Design Week.

On 12 October Stefan Diez will speak about the many faces of his work and projects and new opportunities
for design.

DAMN DESIGN TALK: Information & Communication

Graduates today inform themselves about design differently than their predecessors. What channels do you
use in the times of the internet and social media? Are magazines still relevant? But also: How do you
communicate about design, and prepare for it: how to use your means of communication well? Does good
design explain itself without words? Are words still relevant and if not: how does that work in a time where
we seem to translate from an age with focus on tangible objects to one with more storytelling, research and
projects that are strategic or even political and less tangible?

Sophie Lovell is a writer, editor, curator and consultant in the fields of architecture, design and publishing.
One of her best-known books is the monograph Dieter Rams: As Little Design as Possible.

Orlando Lovell recently graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven with a research on the communication
of design objects in her research: Function Fiction. Sophie and Orlando Lovell recently started Lovell_studio
together.

Alexander Römer studied carpentry and architecture and founded ConstructLab. As such he worked on
international projects where conception and construction are brought together and set within a social,
environmental and temporal context.

Dr. Sascha Peters is founder of Haute Innovation, a future agency for Material and Technology that plays
an intermediary role between technological innovation and marketable product application. As part of this
he has for instance shown innovative materials and technologies at leading international exhibitions and
fairs since 2012.

Emma Lucek  is a designer, researcher, enthusiast of visual information. She studied urbanism
and architecture at the Design Academy in Eindhoven, now writes for DAMN Magazine, works as a curator
and design critic.

DEAR DESIGN TALK: Themes of the Times

Design is always in a flux and reacts on the times we live in. The GDG exhibition centres around eight
themes and reflects parts of our current ‘zeitgeist’, but there are more and certainly new topics to come. A
panel discussion with a GDG ambassador, designers and professors, the GDG- kulturpreis and a green card
winner, will look deeper into the topics that we face now, but also to the ones that designers have to face in
our near future.

Angelika Nollert is director of die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum and Jury member for the
German Design Graduates kulturpreis.

Anke Bernotat works internationally as designer of furniture and products and projects in the widest sense
of the word and holds a position as professor of Industrial Design at Folkwang-University of the Arts.

Prof. Jesko Fezer works as a designer. In cooperation with ifau he realizes architectural projects, he is co-founder of the bookstore Pro qm and part of the exhibition design studio Kooperative für Darstellungspolitik. He is Professor of Experimental Design at the College of Fine Arts Hamburg.

Annika Frey is interested in the aesthetic qualities of serial production, experimental processes and the
design process as source of innovation. She is professor for design science and design research at
Muthesius University of Arts and Design in Kiel.

May-Britt Frank-Grosse works as a journalist and consultant in the fields of architecture and design. Since
February 2019 she has been editor-in-chief at DEAR magazine for design and interior design, based in

STARSHELF

The Berlin furniture company WOOD'S UP presents its shelving system STARSHELF at DESIGN POOL. Already during the development of the shelving system, possible roof slopes, skirting boards, heating pipes and light switches, sockets and inclined floors were considered and STARSHELF was perfected.

The system is based on plug connections and is therefore easy to assemble, dismantle and expand.

The shelf is made of Finnish birch multiplex from sustainable cultivation, a durable, resilient and dimensionally stable material.

Behind WOOD'S UP stands Berlin carpenter René Hörold. Already during his training Hörold followed his ideal to produce more than just mass products. Before he founded his company in Berlin, he manufactured classic furniture for private customers in a carpentry workshop on Fuerteventura, but also shop fittings for hotels with a great deal of freedom in design. It was here that he finally developed his idea for WOOD'S UP and STARSHELF.


Curator's tour: „Deutsches Design rund ums Bauhaus“

The Bröhan-Museum gives a curator's tour through parts of the newly designed permanent exhibition. After the First World War, functionalism became widely accepted. Progressive art schools such as the Bauhaus in Weimar or the Burg Giebichenstein in Halle contributed significantly to this development, which also reached larger sections of the population in projects such as the New Frankfurt.

The guided tour is free of charge, plus admission to the museum 8,- €/reduced 5,- €,
Registration is not required. Language: german

The Bröhan-Museum has a unique collection of Art Nouveau, Art Deco and the art of the Berlin Secession at its disposal. On an exhibition area of around 1000 square metres, it shows a presentation from the collection which changes every two years.

Neuwerth & Boldig—handmade cement tiles

The Berlin company Neuwerth & Boldig offers cement tiles for walls and floors in residential and business premises. The tiles are designed in Berlin - in pattern and colour - and produced in southern Spain by a family-owned company, which is the fourth generation to produce cement tiles by hand using the traditional method.
For the complex manufacturing process, it is necessary to know the exact mixing ratios and ingredients and to mix them in their properties. For the hand-made individual tile patterns designed by Neuwerth & Boldig, special bronze templates are made, which separate the resulting pattern using the casting process of the tiles.


GIN & TON Cocktail time

TON invites you to its Berlin showroom to present its new chair "Ginger" - a design by the Spanish creative studio Yonoh, whose designers Clara del Portillo and Alex Selma will also be on site.

Alloy925

The Alloy collection by designer Anne Kaden includes wearable jewelry and experiments in 925 silver. The casting methods and the material into which it is cast influence the shape, color, alloy and shell of the casting. The material is melted directly in the ground or poured from a crucible into the ground. The variety of colors is created by sulphide and oxide compounds, which are formed by high temperatures in the casting process with the material of the ground. The pieces of jewelry constantly change due to natural oxidation. With these casting methods snapshots of place and time can be captured. On a trip to Iceland some rings were created which freeze the local conditions.

The Alloy925 collection was created as a B.A. thesis by the designer Anne Kaden during the Exploring /_ / Transitions project in the winter semester 2016/2017 of the Department of Industrial Design/System Design at Burg Giebichenstein Kunsthochschule Halle. 


"The Bauhaus in 100 Objects" - 100 style icons at stilwerk

They show what was created during the 14-year existence of the Bauhaus - and what has been designed at the same time and afterwards both in Germany and abroad with a similar demand for form, function, material and reduction. And the exhibits tell, above all, one thing: design history.


Interfaces

The digital revolution is changing our world and environment at an increasing speed - the upheaval triggered by digital technology and computers has brought about change in almost all areas of life since the beginning of the 20th century. This upheaval also requires a reorientation or at least an expansion of the focus of creative disciplines in research and teaching: In addition to the trends of the digital revolution, such as the topics of big data, machine learning and artificial intelligence, designers will face further challenges in the future. The influence of the new media on our communication behavior, socialization processes and language culture or the expansion of our empirical environment through artificial parallel worlds, for example in the area of virtual or augmented reality, are examples of the new need for creative visions.

The exhibition shows a selection of outstanding interactive works and experiments by students of Communication Design at the University of Applied Science Berlin, who deal with these topics in a variety of ways.
A total of six experiments will be on display, presenting visitors with interfaces to the digital sphere.

The exhibition is curated by Moritz Schell, research assistant at the University of Applied Science Berlin, and Andreas Ingerl Professor of Digital Media in the Communication Design course at the University of Applied Science in cooperation with the Museum of Communication.

The exhibitions will take place in the historic buildings of the former AEG and the Kabelwerk Oberspree, now the Wilhelminenhof campus of the HTW Berlin, and will be open from 2 p.m. on 11 October

OBLIK – Enter the Void

The N-light membrane, a large-area, immersive binocular and light cube designed by the Croatian-Austrian design collective Numen/For Use, will temporarily occupy the rooms of OBLIK. The vanishing points are manifold and elusive, neon lines disperse into fractals, deep matrix transforms into ornaments, from the surface into depth and back. The surfaces of the cube consist of a flexible membrane and semi-transparent spy glass. By inflating or venting a connected air tank, the membrane becomes convex or concave and deforms the reflections.

The collective Numen/For Use was founded in 1998 by the product designers Sven Jonke, Christoph Katzler and Nikola Radeljkovićs and works in the fields of stage design, industrial design and interior design. For the past ten years, the collective has focused on the design of objects and concepts without predefined functions. As a result, interactive and experimental works such as the N-Light series and a large number of large-scale installations were created, which are currently shown in public spaces and art galleries worldwide.

OBLIK is a curated showroom for designer furniture based in Berlin-Mitte. OBLIK stands for unyieldingly interdisciplinary works and is dedicated to hybrid aesthetics at the border between contemporary art and design practice.

Beyond Sustainability

FJORD, a Design and Innovation studio, will present their point of view and approach on design and sustainability.
Sustainability is often associated with the concept of a “green” environment, which also includes recycling and reductions of CO2 emissions.

During the evening, we will explore all the perspectives associated with sustainability, and work together to create a tangible impact in the world.

Design for Inclusion, Equality & Diversity

The stigmas we face every day can be damaging, destructive and dangerous. These uncomfortable topics, first developed through historical suppression and maintained today, can be almost impossible to bring to our universal attention.

For our second talk of the Berlin Design Week, we would love to share with you how we can begin to address and design for challenging these stigmas, and invite you to an explorative exhibition that will question your own ways of seeing the world around you, starting with the female form.

Design for Spatial Experiences

How human-centric service design approach to architecture can create better experiences for people, while also positively influencing the bottom line of businesses.

Experiences of architecture and spaces today play out across many mediums incorporating elements of architecture, brands, digital products, and services. Thinking about architecture and spatial design without considering the whole human experience and corresponding business outcomes limits brands and hinders human potential.

During the evening, FJORD will host a participatory talk/event focused on the studio’s excursions with architectural design.

DQdB Die Quadratur des Buchstaben

Concrete Letters - concrete letter furniture is the work of designer Jan Irlenkäuser. The design concept is strongly influenced by brutalism and Bauhaus - architectural and design styles that stand for clear forms and an emphasis on construction.
The letters have their roots in graffiti. Jan Irlenkäuser initially conceived the furniture on the basis of a two-dimensionally designed font - readability was not a priority. The font itself was the result of Jan Irlenkäuser's final work in communication design and illustrates his artistic influence through graffiti and an urban environment.

The furniture exists in the representations a to z. Three of them will be staged by Irlenkäuser during the DESIGN POOL and also offer smaller variants of his letter furniture.
