SOLO - Smart Organic Light Objects

The studio project „SOLO - Smart Organic Light Objects“ explores the potential of new technologies for interacting with light beyond existing archetypes and traditional interfaces. New qualities of light as well as novel dynamic, responsive interactions were created catering to human behavior differently. Through an iterative design process, students from both the BA and the MA track developed concepts and prototypes demonstrating these new interactions with light in private or public settings.

Studio work is the core of the Product Design program at Weissensee School of Art and Design Berlin: analog and digital design techniques are used to generate innovative, meaningful and user-centered concepts. In the field of interaction design workshops such as physical computing or machine learning augment the simulation and prototyping process.

For more than 50 years Weißensee School of Art and Design Berlin fosters the exchange between art, design, and society through the one-year interdisciplinary foundation program followed by intense studio work enriched by theory lectures. The campus unites a multitude of workshops and laboratories and is embedded in the vibrant research landscape of Berlin.

Supervisor: Prof. Carola Zwick, Prof. Thomas Ness, Felix Groll (eLAB)

The design studio project acknowledges the support of the Cluster of Excellence »Matters of Activity. Image Space Material«
funded by the German Research Foundation under Germany's Excellence Strategy.
