On Display Package
Autostadt [car city] becomes design city. The idea has become a reality with the Design Display exhibition, where two different exhibits are confronted for four months in a pyramid-shaped glass case and are associated with a main theme. The aim is to stimulate dialogue and to develop an expanded design concept throughout the exhibition period. The On Display magazines (German/English) are published to accompany each exhibition. Each issue highlights a pair of exhibits in more detail and provides more background information with essays and interviews.In On Display 01 on the subject of 3D printing, the Raptor Hand Reloaded is contrasted with the Bone Chair by Joris Laarman. The bookcase Modern by Rafael Horzon and Jasper Morrison’s cutlery for Muji invite to examine simplicity in design in On Display 02. Julia Lohmann and Petra Blaisse’s projects offer readers an insight into experimental materials in On Display 03. On Display 04 gives you a glimpse of the Mexican design scene with Fernando Romero’s Border City project and Carla Fernández’ Vestido Cobra, which put reflections on socio-political issues at the heart of the design process.
