Open Space 2021

Once again this year, Prof. Ansgar Eidens and Prof. Michael Jonas kicked off the semester with a meeting of all design students at Designnexport to welcome the first-year students and take a look at the coming semester.

The event opened with a warm welcome from the Head of Designexport, Frances Uckermann.

Afterwards, the professors presented the news for the semester and gave space to talk with the students about wishes and questions for the future.
All suggestions were collected in the form of post-its and discussed together.

For the second part of the evening, we had the pleasure of welcoming our guests, Nina Kirst, Deputy Editor-in-Chief of PAGE Magazine and Robert Andersen, Creative Managing Director and Managing Director Jung von Matt FLOW.

During a small panel discussion, questions such as “What is the task of modern designers?” were examined from different perspectives and the experiences of our experts. And inspiring, future-oriented words were found.
There was also a discussion about the task of design in the time of Covid-19 and what has changed as a result of the pandemic.

At the end of the event, everyone finished the evening with a drink and good conversation overlooking the harbour.

We are glad you were all there and wish you a great start to the new semester!
