Design Views Vol. III
Philipp Weber: Composing Processes

29.03.2018 to 18.04.2018

Philipp Weber’s work is coined by a very unique approach towards materials and traditional crafting techniques. In A Strange Symphony the designer focuses and analyses the process of manufacturing glass. Particularly inspired was Weber by the rhythm of the glassmaker and the almost musical interaction with the viscous material. His “Glassmaker Trumpet” is based on the blowpipe – the main tool of manufacturing glass – which is here transformed from a crafting into a musical instrument. In From Below the designer deconstructs the industrial process of producing coke and gives it a new meaning by approaching the material from a more technical perspective. 

Philipp Weber graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven and Berlin University of the Arts. His work has received numerous prizes and has been exhibited internationally. A Strange Symphony was also included into the collection of the Shanghai Museum of Glass and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Lausanne. 

Design Views is an exhibition series developed between Kunstgewerbemuseum and the International Design Center Berlin.
