This spring – and for the first time ever – Haus am Waldsee will focus on innovative product design created by contemporary Berlin designers. Seventeen internationally established designers will return the former private villa in the district of Zehlendorf, built in 1922, to its former purpose as a residential dwelling. In addition, the villa’s 10,000 square metres lakeside estate will be transformed into an innovative playground for weatherproof objects and outdoor fashion.
In the garden, Werner Aisslinger will set up his spectacular mobile home “Loftcube”. In the exhibition space indoors, a wide range of exhibits awaits the discerning visitor. From Werner Aisslinger’s ‘osmotic’ habitation structure to osko+deichmann’s ‘floating’ living landscape with its side table design ‘ponton’, reminiscent of a wooden pier. In the former music room, Gerhards & Glücker display a prototype of a shower stall as well as a range of their famous room-dividing ‘softwalls’. Jürgen Mayer H. provides a room with opulent patterns and seating solutions with soft mosaics by Bisazza – for a lounge within the exhibition. Sabina Nordalm furnishes a purist oak bedroom, jomad (Johannes Müller-Baum) contributes a new kitchen idea and Konrad Süßkow throws in a miniature mobile workstation. All this is accompanied by plenty of novel lighting solutions, for example by Julian Appelius, unusual fashion inspirations and a range of smaller objects for sale, devised by Berlin designers for the mass market.
The Haus am Waldsee exhibition is realised in cooperation with DESIGNMAI, Transform Berlin e.V. and with the kind support of BMW, Bisazza, Bionade, Angst + Pfister AG, Hasenkopf Holz und Kunststoff GmbH, AV Tours, the Council of the Berlin Borough of Steglitz-Zehlendorf – Department of Culture and Library, FB Kultur, the friends and supporters of the Haus am Waldsee e.V., the Brandenburger Hof as partner, and the media partners Monopol and Kunst Magazin Berlin.
