“WORKING TITLE”
from makeshift solutions to product development by Johanna Dehio
Love them or hate them: one encounters makeshift solutions everywhere! In her project “Working title” Johanna Dehio questions what might be the unique beauty in makeshift objects; and furthermore, what could be learned from them for her own product development and adopted from their specific charm. Readiness to improvise and an open-minded approach are important preconditions in her design method. The outset is the approach: honing the perception of the positive aspects of spontaneously created solutions and recognising their beauty. The result is a series of drafts describing a feeling of openness and ease. The “Drahtbank”( = wire bench) is part of the collection “Working Title”. It consists of metal frames of a stool, a chair and a table which are completed by the user combining them with one’ s preferred material; planks, boards, old wooden panels… The bench allows for many variations and asks for the user’s involvement.

Reh im Schnee von Anna Henckel Donnersmarck, www.annahd.net
daily 18:00 -22:00

Erster Schnee

Aus silbergrauen Gründen
tritt 
ein schlankes Reh
im winterlichen Wald
und prüft vorsichtig Schritt für Schritt,
den reinen, kühlen, frischgefallenen Schnee.
Und deiner denk ich, zierlichste Gestalt.

Christian Morgenstern  (deutscher Dichter 1871 – 1914)
