- In February 2019 the Faculty of Design of the University of Applied Sciences Munich opened its new venue at Lothstraße 17. As presentations and exchange play an essential role at the department, we developed Rahmenwerk to
live up to the faculty’s presentation culture. The furniture system is a framework to enable and empower its users.
Team: Julian Kern,
Rahmenwerk offers great support for a successful presentation. The furnishings serve frontal lectures as well as workshop situations. The open side of the speaker's desk invites the user to enter the stage and leads the speaker into a
protected area. Both of the two parts of the system play with open and closed zones in order to shield the user from the audience or to open up to them.
The worktop’s arrangement proposes a structure without patronising the user. Add-ons
like the microphone holder, the blind and wedge playfully move throughout the furniture system and can be placed individually.
To survey the concept for its practical use, the first prototypes were tested at various events at the faculty. The final design was inaugurated at the opening ceremony
of the new building and received great attention from prominent speakers like the Bavarian Minister of State for Science and Arts Bernd Sibler.
