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”.
