The educational and cultural initiative of the German Design Museum Foundation, called Entdecke Design (Discover Design) has thus far enabled around 15,000 children and adolescents to discover the world of design and execute their own designs.
Entdecke Design (Discover Design) © Nico Pudimat The exciting journey of discovery through the world of design is linked to the celebration of 100 Years of Bauhaus! This provides an opportunity to acquire new knowledge of a shared cultural heritage in a practice-oriented fashion. Why are the ideas of the Bauhaus as a legendary school of architecture, design and art still relevant today? How can we use its ideas for our future? Led by design students, the participants engage in creative work themselves and design their own model chair — as a design exercise. Matching posters can also be designed. The workshop concept is modular in structure, and the scheduling can be flexibly adapted.
