'Aluminium Series' by Sebastian Scherer
The German designer Sebastian Scherer has created this ‘Aluminium Series’ collection of sleek, characterised-by-its-oscilloscopic-lines furniture, which has been presented at this year’s international design festival DMY in Berlin. The series, which is ‘based on the basic idea of transforming a two-dimensional form into a three-dimensional object through the process of folding’, has been uniformly
executed in 8mm water-cut aluminium – with the exception of the table whose top is made of Corian – and comprises a chair, a coat hanger and the said table design. (more…)

DMY, Berlin’s much-celebrated International Design Festival returns for its 9th edition.
‘The DMY International Design Festival Berlin will anew take place in the impressive architecture of historic city airport Berlin Tempelhof. The central exhibition showcases pioneering and foresighted works by over 500 professional designers, brands and new talents. Reflecting on design as a full circle system, the central exhibition is accompanied by a vast program of satellite exhibitons and events such as Designer Talks, Lectures, Open Design and Material Workshops. Honouring the talent of young and professional designers, the largest festival for product design in Germany will also celebrate foresighted works within the Ceremony of the DMY Awards and the design contest for young talents of IKEA Stiftung.
‘While a great amount of tools has been invented to make our lives ea- sier and more efficient, we rarely have the time to reflect upon our daily practices and our life with things. Most of the things that surround us are a result of a design process. They are not simply given, but repre- sent continuous development processes and thus are subject to change. Instead of just mirroring the status quo, the DMY International Design Festival highlights forward-thinking products and research-driven pro- jects reflecting upon the social impact of contemporary product design.’

Steam installation by Daniel Schulze
This poetic installation ‘For those who see’ is the final year project of the German designer Daniel Schulze who recently graduated at UdK (Universität der Künste) in Berlin. It is composed of a matrix of 7 by 7 boxes which individually release synchronized signals of smoke in the air. The pressure for the ascending smoke is generated by vibrating speakers, which are vortexing the air at a perfectly circular opening.
'Don’t Hide Your Light Under A Bushel', table lamp by Uli Budde
After several year’s in the Netherlands the German designer Uli Budde, who started to study at Fachhochschule Potsdam and graduated at Design Acadamy Eindhoven moved back to Berlin. At this year’s DMY festival he presented his newest creation, the table lamp ‘Don’t Hide Your Light Under A Bushel’. It is composed of two basic elements – a cylindric body which includes the Halogene light source and a tilted, cicular reflector. Clear and understandable design – that’s what we like Uli Budde’s work for.
