During the last semester, a project by visiting professor Tjeerd Veenhoven and a bachelor thesis were dedicated to designing meaningful interventions in conventional value chains.
In this context, we developed experimental design concepts with different approaches from material experiments to abstract digital format.
Luzie Deubel experimented with bio-degradable waterproofing applications for paper. The outcome is a rain coat made from this paper.
Maiella Di Donato developed approaches towards a sustainable resin replacement and explored the use of chitosan in the form of foil, glue or composite material as an alternative to epoxy resin in
Freya Probst worked on self-growing textiles. The result is a jacket grown from roots.
Juliane Schmidt looked for an ecological PVC alternative for vinyl production. The outcome is bioplastic that you can listen to.
Anja Zachau and Jakob Kukula explored new applications for heat resistant basalt fibre mesh. They made it wearable by turning it into heat protective clothing.
Leonie Fischer worked with the abstract sustainability of data. Visualisation of so called dead data marks the importance of non-physical values.

As students of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar we all live the traditional idea of thinking design further. The experiment plays a central role in our creative process. Important for the project itself
is the collaboration of students from all different semesters. That leads to very diverse and beautiful results that were already shown at the yearly summer exhibition of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar (13.07.2017-16.07.2017). We would be delighted to present some of these results to a wider audience. Dutch Design Week is a great opportunity for us students to show our experimental processes and our results to get in touch with other students and
