2016 | state of DESIGN, BERLIN

THIS WAS state of DESIGN, BERLIN 2016: THE INAUGURAL EDITION OF A NEW YEARLY FESTIVAL, AND THE MAIN EVENT OF THIS YEAR’S BERLIN DESIGN WEEK. A VERY DIFFERENT KIND OF DESIGN EVENT, UNIQUE IN THE WAY IT DOES NOT JUST SHOW THE LATEST IN DESIGN, BUT TRIES TO REVEAL AND QUESTION THE INSPIRATION AND PROCESS BEHIND ITS MAKING, THE WAY IN WHICH IT IS INNOVATIVE AND PROBLEM SOLVING, ETCETERA, TAKING DESIGN AWAY FROM SHOWROOMS AND TRADE FAIRS, AND PRESENTING IT AS A SUBJECT OF REFLECTION AND DEBATE, USING THE GREATEST POSSIBLE VARIETY OF PARAMETERS, FROM MATERIALS AND TECNIQUES TO THE GLOBAL POLITICAL AND ECONOMICAL CONTEXT,

THEREFORE ALSO embracing ‘THE OTHER 90%’, COUNTRIES, CULTURES AND THEMES THAT DESPITE OF THEIR CRUCIAL IMPORTANCE ARE STILL LARGELY IGNORED BY THE DESIGN SCENE.
