Five UdK students‘ projects have been selected for this year’s edition of Global Grad Show Dubai: Ignis by Tobias Trübenbacher, First Aid Gloves by Anna Koppmann, Organico by Philipp Hainke, Water Scale by Louis Bindernagel and Familie Hempel by Marie Radke.
The Global Grad Show is one of the highlights of Dubai Design Week and the initiativ invites the worlds best graduates over to Dubai to show there work. For the 2019’s edition Eleanor Watson was appointed as curator. Eleanor is part of the curatorial team at the Design Museum in London. Approximately only one in every hundred projects were selected this year as a record number of applications were put forward.
It is exceptional that not just one but five students have been selected. The Product Design students – of which 3 have not even graduated yet – will be joined in Dubai by Prof. Ineke Hans, who will be involved in a Conference on Innovating for Social Impact.
