Pupils discover design
Phoenix Design will discover design together with children age 14 to 16 on 11 November 2019 at the Werkgymnasium Heidenheim. Designer Steffi Moser will take a concrete example to sketch the design process from first idea all the way to product development. Then, the students themselves will get down to work: collect adjectives and pieces of furniture, and then build a “quick model”!
A charming cupboard or a pointed lamp? The children may shape their favourite combination from simple materials (e.g. corrugated cardboard, wire, straws) according to their own ideas. Do research, find ideas, analyse, develop further, execute together, hold a presentation – all these are tasks which the professional design workday calls for. Fantasy knows no bounds. At the same time, creativity, eagerness to try out new things, network thinking, and conscious environmental design are promoted as well.
