'Transalpino' at the DMY Berlin

The group of 13 German/Italian designers ‘Transalpino’ exhibited and worked for seven days during this year´s DMY Festival in their beautiful exhibition space in Berlin´s Prenzlauer Berg borough. With their experimental exhibition the designers processed waste material from a veneer factory – a material which is easy to manipulate with basic tools. The results were “ad hoc objects” and abstract shapes, which nicely adorned the wall.

“Our focus is not on the end product but on interaction, as well as testing and discovering the limits of designing in a public space. It doesn’t just showcase finished products but also “open progress”, in other words the group and the work themselves. Here, ideas and inspiration are shared, with none of the usual references to who has designed what. This theme is continued in the workshop rules: “Adopting ideas is encouraged”, “Copyright-free zone” and “No mass production”.”
