From 15 till 21 January 2018 the Product Design course of Universität der Künste Berlin presents itself at the Pure Talents section of International Interiors Fair IMM in Cologne.
UdK’s BA and MA Product Design students today explore.
They look into new materials and techniques for design.
They aim to find new typologies and products that fit to the time we live in and our future.
Through collaborations with professional parties they inspire partners and – at the same time – build up experience themselves with implementing their explorations into reality.
Under the title PROBE these explorations are presented at IMM in four domains: • Materials • Products • Co-operations • Reality.
On show will be award winning projects with Osram, results from a co-operation project with the Love School in Nairobi, explorations for new product typologies and inspiring material developments.
Especially for this presentation an essay is written about Product Design at UdK by Gabrielle Kennedy. An extract of her text can be found in the Cologne insert of DAMnº Magazine nr.66 jan/feb 2018.
The presentation will be accompanied by informative printwork designed by acclaimed Berlin graphic designers Lambl / Homburger.
During the days you can join the students for several short workshops.
On 16 January at 16.00 there will be some drinks sponsored by Osram at UdK’s Product Design stand in Cologne: Hall 3.1 B0-18
