The DMY International Design Festival at Tempelhof Airport was this past weekend. It offered a wide range of works from independent designers, smaller design boutiques and recent university graduates.
I sure saw a lot of fancy lamp shades and chairs. Sustainable and recycled materials were consistent themes throughout the show, including bike-part shelving, seat-belt beds and bio-degradable urns.
There was also an interesting exhibit by Kueng Caputo, which discussed the issue of plagiarism in design, by breaking down products that were in this year’s show to it’s most simple form/concept. Project photography by Raphael Hefti.
Overall an interesting show with a wide variety of exhibits covering everything from product design to conceptual works to painting furniture with rainbow colored rain. Looking forward to next year.
