Design Views: Philipp Weber
Exhibition at Kunstgewerbemuseum

Details

Philipp Weber’s work is coined by a very unique approach towards materials and traditional crafting techniques. In »A Strange Symphony« the designer focuses and analyses the process of manufacturing glass. Particularly inspired was Weber by the rhythm of the glassmaker and the almost musical interaction with the viscous material. His glassmaker trumpet is based on the blowpipe – the main tool of manufacturing glass – which is here transformed from a crafting into a musical instrument. In »From Below« the designer deconstructs the industrial process of producing coke and gives it a new meaning by approaching the material from a more technical perspective.

Philipp Weber graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven and Berlin University of the Arts. His work has received numerous prizes and has been exhibited internationally.»A Strange Symphony« was also included into the collection of the Shanghai Museum of Glass and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Lausanne.

Design Views is an exhibition series developed between Kunstgewerbemuseum and the International Design Center Berlin.

Design Views: Ina Budde
Exhibition at Kunstgewerbemuseum

Details

Ina Budde sets new standards in the rapidly changing fashion industry. The principles of circular economy run through her collection DfC X JNJ with impressive consistency – a feat that she was rewarded for with the Federal Ecodesign Award 2017.

The fashion designer’s dedication for recycling-optimizing design principles and a fair production opposes the linear industrial ways of economy that lead to a high consumption of raw materials and enormous amounts of waste. Transparency and traceability of the materials and production, as well as the expansion of return-services and the development of new utilization concepts and distribution channels are important cornerstones of Ina Budde’s work.

Opening:

April 25, from 7 pm
