Lecture: What is design? A report from practice with Felix Timm, Managing Director Busse Design+Engineering
Is design primarily a matter of a pretty surface? Hans Gugelot resolutely resisted this view. At the newly founded HfG, it soon became clear that when designing technical products, an understanding of construction is just as indispensable as the ability to communicate with decision-makers or to deal with user needs.
Felix Timm reports on the practical experience of an office for product design and development, which is closely connected to the Ulm University of Applied Sciences through its founder Rido Busse – he was one of the early HfG students. Today the concept of design has changed and expanded. The lecture will give an overview of the topics and areas of expertise a modern design office deals with and how individual projects are implemented there.
