young designers meet the industry
ydmi goes hong kong

Insgesamt zehn junge Designer aus Deutschland erhalten im Rahmen der
diesjährigen YDMI – Young Designers Meet the Industry, die Möglichkeit, sich und ihre Arbeit vom 25. November bis zum 3. Dezember 2011 während der BODW – Business of Design Week in Hongkong zu präsentieren. In diesem Jahr findet die mehrtägige Veranstaltung der YDMI Days anlässlich der Deutschen Partnerschaft zur BODW in Kooperation mit den Hong Kong Ambassadors of Design statt und steht unter der Schirmherrschaft des Bundesministeriums für Wirtschaft und Technologie. Neben Ausstellungen und Portfolioshows auf der begleitenden Messe Inno Design Tech Expo und im Off-Programm der BODW „deTour“ werden die Nachwuchsdesigner in verschiedenen Workshops mit hochkarätigen Vertretern aus Design und Industrie zusammenarbeiten und am offiziellen Gala Dinner der BODW teilnehmen.
THE FURNITURE DESIGNS FOR THE FOYERS AND THE SKY LOUNGE WILL, IN ADDITION TO THE SPECIFICATION IN THE ELBPHILHARMONIE, BE PRODUCED IN SERIES BY A RENOWNEDMANUFACTURER FROM SPRING 2017. CONCEPT FOR THE FOYERS OF THE SMALL AND THE GRAND CONCERT HALL EVA MARGUERRE, MARCEL BESAU AND DANIELSCHÖNING HAVE CREATED A NOTICEABLY RELATED PRODUCT FAMILY, THAT IS USED IN THE FOYER AROUND THE GRAND CONCERT HALL. THE SINGLE ELEMENTS OF THE FAMILY, THE HIGH TABLE, THE BENCH AND THE SIDE TABLE, BECOME RECOGNISABLE ELBPHILHARMONIE FURNITURE. IN THE FOYER OF THE GRAND CONCERT HALL THE FURNITURE IS SPECIFIED IN WHITE, FOR THE FOYER OF THE SMALL CONCERT HALL THE FURNITURE IS FEATURED IN BLACK. CENTRAL TO THE DESIGN PROCESS WERE THE HIGH REQUIREMENTS ON THE USAGE AND EXPOSURE OF FURNITURE IN PUBLIC SPACES. THUS, ALL OF THE FURNITURE’S SURFACES ARE EASILY EXCHANGEABLE AFTER EXCESSIVE USE. THE HIGH TABLE CONSISTS OF A POWDERED STEEL FRAME THAT HOLDS THREE CIRCULAR LEVELS. A MARBLE SLAB IS INSERTED ON THE TOP STEEL PLATE TO FORM THE TABLETOP. THE TWO LOWER LEVELS OFFER ADDITIONAL STORAGE SPACE. DESIGN LANGUAGE AND MATERIALITY FOR THE SIDE TABLE AND THE BENCH, THE OTHER TWO PIECES IN THIS FAMILY, ARE DEDUCED FROM THE HIGH TABLE. POSITIONED ALONGSIDE THE SIDE CORRIDORS IN FRONT OF THE GLASS FACADE, THE NEW FURNITURE DESIGNS ENABLE THE VISITORS TO ENJOY THE SPECTACULAR VIEW. OVERALL, THE PRODUCT FAMILY IS CHARACTERIZED BY A FORMAL RESTRAINT AND A SIMPLE GEOMETRY. THE NATURAL-NESS OF THE MARBLE AS WELL AS THE UPHOLSTERY OF THE BENCH CONTRAST WITH THE LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION OF THE STEEL FRAME. IT VISUALISES HARMONIOUSLY THE MAIN IDEA BEHIND THE INTERIOR CONCEPT. DANIEL SCHÖNING WRS ARCHITEKTEN UND STADTPLANER GMBH WWW.WIRSIND.NET PHOTOS NINA STRUVE ELIAS HASSOS IWAN BAAN
