smart technology - new design

Within the "Designers' Open" Design Festival in Leipzig 2013, the special exhibition "smart technology - new design", curated by Mareike Gast, was a unique synopsis of three promising issues: manifold folgings, digital fabricators and 3D spraying.

In order to focus and retain the potential of all the innovations shown at the exhibition, a catalogue of all the exhibits should be produced for the first time. I was responsible for the photography of the more than one hundred exhibits.

The catalogue was beautifully designed by Pixelgarten, printed in edition of 100 copies and can be purchased here.

The exhibition was hosted by Leipziger Messe GmbH, supported by HTWK Leipzig and sponsored by Leipziger Stiftung für Innovation und Technologietransfer.
