“Unknown Per­spec­tives” at IAA Mobil­i­ty Summit

A mobil­i­ty design exhibition

Messe | München

IAA Summit
4. September 2023 – 8. September 2023

The exhi­bi­tion “Unknown Per­spec­tives” curat­ed by bay­ern design shows design per­spec­tives on a net­worked and envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly mobil­i­ty. With four exhibits we look at the design of mobil­i­ty sys­tems from the small to the large: from sus­tain­able mate­ri­als, inno­v­a­tive con­struc­tion, from the object lev­el to new spaces of mobil­i­ty. The title “Unknown Per­spec­tives” refers to yet unknown and unde­fined mod­els and futures of sus­tain­able mobility.

Through the design of sce­nar­ios and spaces of pos­si­bil­i­ty, design­ers can deal par­tic­u­lar­ly well with these futures and take on a uni­fy­ing role in col­lab­o­ra­tion with experts from oth­er dis­ci­plines. Sus­tain­able mobil­i­ty is to be seen as a sys­tem. The inter­ac­tion of users with mate­ri­als, peo­ple, objects, infor­ma­tion, spaces and infra­struc­tures will be pre­sent­ed. Eco­log­i­cal con­texts, such as envi­ron­men­tal pol­lu­tion, land con­sump­tion or car­bon diox­ide emis­sions, play an impor­tant role here.

Design cre­ates access, expe­ri­ences and iden­ti­ties to these mobil­i­ty sys­tems (cf. “Offen­bach Mod­el” of human-cen­tered mobil­i­ty design). This includes the design of flex­i­ble and diverse usabil­i­ty (access), the design of social, aes­thet­ic and atmos­pher­ic spaces (expe­ri­ence), and the com­mu­ni­ca­tion of val­ues and mean­ings of mobil­i­ty sys­tems to cre­ate belong­ing and iden­ti­fi­ca­tion (iden­ti­ty).

The exhi­bi­tion is part of the Bavar­i­an joint stand “Bavaria. Das Inno­va­tion­s­land” of the Bavar­i­an Min­istry of Eco­nom­ic Affairs, Region­al Devel­op­ment and Ener­gy togeth­er with Bay­ern Inno­v­a­tiv (hall B1, booth E30) and is curat­ed by bay­ern design.

The Sum­mit is open to trade vis­i­tors from Sep­tem­ber 5 — 8.

In 2021, bay­ern design was already rep­re­sent­ed at the IAA Mobil­i­ty on behalf of the Bavar­i­an Min­istry of Eco­nom­ic Affairs with the pavil­ion “Open mind­ed to new visions”.
