Exhibition design / 2011-2012 / teamwork with Laura Hillebrandt and Marita Schwenkedel
Each year, the well-known selection of the „100 best posters“ presents a wide and colourful range of contemporary poster designs. In 2011, a new exhibition system to display the winning posters needed to be created.
Since the exhibition travels around Germany, Switzerland and Austria, we wanted the system to be a simple and lightweight construction: easy and quick to assemble, space saving for transportation and flexible and adaptable to the six different locations. Pipes, tripod bases and connection bows are simply plugged into one another. White and black components can be combined freely for each set up. This small playful moment livens up the pure and strict constructive logic of the structure.
The two communication designers Lena Haase and Marina Gärtner were responsible for the corporate identity of the competition. Working together, exchanging views and ideas in the different phases of the project added some extra input and experience to us. The interdisciplinary project was awarded in several competitions. In 2014, our exhibition system is used for the third consecutive year.
