Design Views: WertelOberfell
Exhibition at Kunstgewerbemuseum

Details

Good product design involves a great deal of work and requires plenty of experience and skills. The Design Intent experiences an evolutionary development and needs sufficient time to mature. This not necessarily linear process requires extensive analysis and ultimately also good feeling to make the right decisions at the right time.

WertelOberfell will be working on some experimental designs on site at KGM, and provide insights into their work processes. The focus will be on iterative artwork using 3D printers and CAD programs. In this way, visitors can observe how a design evolves from the first idea – the Design Intent – into its final version.

Opening:

November 28, 4:30pm
Talk and guided tour with the designers, participation with valid museum ticket for free.

Opening Times:

November 28, 2018 – January 13, 2019
Tue – Wed: 10am – 6pm, Sat – Sun: 11am –6pm
