Hamburg is the first stop for this touring show created by Zurich’s Design Museum, it will be followed by Finland and Denmark. The exhibition voices a critique of consumerism, of course, but the items on show also point to ways of resolving such global problems. The museum will also be offering designer workshops giving interested young people and adults the possibility to explore the issue with guidance from designers using the design thinking approach.
Each of the three workshops being held alongside the exhibition lasts a whole weekend and allows the participants to gain insights into basic design assumptions and topics including the throwaway society, plastics, and potential solutions proposed by designers.
