The evening began with presentations from:
Ronen Kadushin, “The making of the Recent Uploads exhibition Open Design chairs”
Anika Hirt, “rethinking dogma 95 in media art”
Le Van Bo, “Hartz-IV-Möbel”
Shortly following the opening discussion, we converted the charming betahaus cafe into a workshop with Le Van Bo, “Build your own Berliner Hocker.” Inspired by Bauhaus design, the Berliner Hocker is a multifunctional bookshelf / coffee table / chair / stool / drum / or just about anything one can think of. The simplistic design is additionally flexible, as adjustments may be made to its orientation and placement. The possibilities for this clever design are endless and intended to inspire creativity within its users.
