2018 marks the 50th anniversary of International Design Center Berlin. Celebrating its jubilee, IDZ teamed up with Berlin's Kunstgewerbemuseum to present a new exhibition and event series called "Design Views": Selected studios showcase contemporary design positions at the museum with monthly changing exhibitions. The series sheds light upon current design developments and creates a space for discourse, knowledge sharing and networking.
On 28 March, Philipp Weber will show "Composing Processes". The designer's work deals with our usage of and relations to traditional materials. In A Strange Symphony the designer focuses and analyses the process of manufacturing glass. The work reflects the rhythm of the glassmaking process. 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.
Design Views is an exhibition series developed in cooperation between Kunstgewerbemuseum and the International Design Center Berlin.
