Just like anyone else, we cannot avoid the topic of soccer! The renowned German cultural theorist Klaus Theweleit, based in Freiburg, speaks about the analogous and digital mutability of soccer – about tangents, nets and closed spaces on the playing field.

Studio Hausen from Berlin consists of two passionate design “scientists”. We report on one of their successful experiments, which shows how polyurethane foam and technical textiles can be turned into an extravagant armchair – and what organic microstructures have to do with it all.
