DesignLabor in Hamburg

Hands-on design: In the DesignLabor of the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, registered groups have the opportunity to test design objects and examine them with the guidance of an expert.


About 500 high-quality design objects are available for this purpose. Is the chair just nice to look at or is it also comfortable and affordable? How does the design of cutlery sets, dishes and appliances adapt to changing dining and living habits? What does design mean and how can design quality be assessed? Depending on the product group, various focal themes can be established. Experts guide visitors through the event, which takes about 90 minutes.

The Designlab offers the following subjects:

- Everything’s under control! What is ergonomics?

- Everything’s fresh. Body care objects with a designer's look

- Packaging design

- The design classics

- Bauhaus design

- Everything’s plastic?

- Of sitting and owning

- Design for children

- In vino veritas – The jar for the wine (including wine tasting in glasses made by contemporary producers)

- Set the table!
