During the DMY Festival in Berlin, Transalpino, a group of 13 German and Italian designers, spent seven days using simple tools to craft objects from waste veneer. Upon completion, each object was added to a growing mind-map that related it to its predecessors and successors, illustrating the developments in making and thinking throughout the seven day period.
The exhibition is an experiment, where the focus is not on the end product but on interaction, as well as testing and discovering the limits of designing in a public space. It doesn't just showcase finished products but also "open progress", in other words the group and the work themselves. Here, ideas and inspiration are shared, with none of the usual references to who has designed what. This theme is continued in the workshop rules: "Adopting ideas is encouraged", "Copyright-free zone" and "No mass production".
