Studio Bernhard Lenger invites visitors to be part of a new Journey. Rather then showing a finished project he gives the possibility to become a follower for something new. "We are Human Rights" is a collaboration in between 6 Human Rights Defenders and 6 Designers.

During this Event it will be possible to support and become part of the project by following the stories of why designers should be working on more than the physical. Designers have the possibilities to solve complex problems and visualise or even materialise solutions. But this skill can also be used on an immaterial problem. With this skill we can reinvent laws or other systems, which guide our world.

Together with Human Rights Defenders, Designers will start to take a look on what are the flaws, which are keeping Human Rights from succeeding. So that instead of visualising the problem and suffering which so often is portrait the focus is on innovation.

Join during Dutch Design Week and become a part of the Project.

Organized by Studio Bernhard Lenger

Bernhard Lenger is an Austrian designer currently based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.

He uses objects, technology and narration to address personal and global interactions from of current affairs. His work encourages individual and collective participation by inviting people to question current affairs. For him Design can be more as only an object of beauty and form, it is a source of inspiration for all kinds of fields and topics.

Lenger explores through philosophy, psychology and laws the meaning of our social anxieties, and so empowers debates and synergy. By creating a tool for thinking, he proposes design, as one defined communicative material mediator. Where currently mediation is failing because of the complexity in specific topics and their used media his designs try to communicate and create interaction.

Bernhard Lenger’s work is always a proposal, a whisper. His approach starts from an observation of his current context which leads him to a reaction and so to a creative and sharing production. He often collaborates with specialists like layers, psychologists and philosophers, with the aim of doing a participative design. Bernhard Lenger sees design as a provocative tool of arising questions and so he does not try to solve, he proposes an honest motion for the better.

Studio Bernhard Lenger is working on commission based projects but also self initiated ones.
