Clemens Weisshaar: The Vanishing Line Between the Physical and the Digital
Donnerstag, 25. Juni 2015, 19 Uhr, Aula

The work of Clemens Weisshaar and Reed Kram is situated on the vanishing line between the physical and digital world. In their projects an increasing degree of the integration of hard- and software systems is evident - throughout design, fabrication and operation. In his lecture, Clemens Weisshaar will speak about the Genesis and Exodus of these projects and give insights into the processes at Kram/Weisshaar.

Reed Kram and Clemens Weisshaar are rising stars in the field of design. They have been referred to as ‘the vanguard of the next generation of digital designers’ (Form Magazine) and ‘the poster boys of a new breed of designers’ (International Herald Tribune). Their office engages in the design of spaces, products and media. Key projects include the technology for Prada's Epicenter stores (2001-2004), the seminal Breeding Tables (2003), Hypersky (2006), Outrace (2010) and Robochop (2015).

Clemens Weisshaar was born in 1977 in Munich and did an apprenticeship as a metal worker before he studied product design at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and the Royal College of Art in London. He worked as an assistant to Konstantin Grcic for three years before founding his first office for design in 2000.

Der Vortrag findet in englischer Sprache statt.
