The Hansgrohe Aquademie stages the exhibition “Home of the Future” by the product designer Werner Aisslinger from Berlin
More than 240 guests attended the first viewing of the exhibition “Home of the Future” on the evening of Thursday, April 3 in the Hansgrohe Aquademie in Schiltach. Designer Werner Aisslinger, who lives in Berlin, personally introduced this new exhibition and his visions of the future. Until September 21, 2014 visitors can discover his ideas about how we will live, cook, sleep, think and take a bath in the future in the visitors’ centre of the bathroom specialist in Schiltach: an unexpected recreation of a residential house including experiments with materials, examples for living and combinations of both old and new.
Werner Aisslinger, who was born and grew up in the Allgäu, today lives and works in Berlin and Singapore. The impact of his urban environment and the related experiences of everyday life have influenced the work of the designer. In the exhibition “Home of the Future”, Werner Aisslinger picks up on fundamental trends of urban life. In the not too distant future more people will live in cities than in the countryside. Living space and natural resources will become increasingly scarce. Due to changes in working and living conditions the number of so-called patchwork families will rise. This change in circumstances demands more flexible, open-floor plans for our flats and houses. Self-sufficiency, conservation of resources based on natural cycles and upcycling will become central issues. This exhibition aims to foster ideas, suggestions and inspiration for a better quality of life. “As a designer you are not only a creative service provider, but you can also produce culture,” says Werner Aisslinger.
