Design Discourse

Boris Kochan & Ulrich Müller

We invited two eloquent and unconventional thinkers to the design discourse to illuminate the theme "Bauhaus" from different angles.

The Association of German Industrial Designers (VDID) and the IDZ jointly host this conversation. Discuss with us at the USM Showroom Berlin on 26 September. (Photo: Michael Bundscherer)

Cornelia Horsch

† 24 August 2019

"Being able to fall asleep when one is tired and being able to let off a weight that has been lugged for a long time, is a delight, a marvellous fact."
(Hermann Hesse)

We say goodbye to the long-time director of the IDZ, our always inspiring colleague and dear friend Cornelia Horsch. With her positive attitude to life, her humour and her unbridled energy, she has left a lasting impression on the IDZ.
