3-day co-design workshop

At this event you will have the unique opportunity to work with the makers of refunc themselves. The design collective has developed the exhibit "Hybrid Catalogue House" for the Futurium Lab - a vision for temporary living that requires almost no resources. You'll hear from refunc about how they come up with their unique objects and the thoughts they put into them. You'll apply these insights yourself over the three days and test them out on our "Hybrid Catalogue House" exhibit.

Refunc will give you a deeper look into the Lab exhibit "Hybrid Catalogue House" in this three-day co-design workshop. You will get a detailed guided tour of the exhibit by the creators themselves and perform playful spatial experiments on the exhibit.

The Hybrid Catalogue House consists of beer benches and moving blankets - what new functions could these materials have? Which ones can we invent together and how do we test that?

Through your ideas, you will further develop the exhibit together with refunc and, for example, create so-called "transformation passports" yourself. If you're curious about what's behind this, the co-design workshop is for you!
