We're excited to start off the fall with a new edition of Speculative Futures Berlin. Join us for a presentation from two members of Stuttgart's moovel lab, an "anti-disciplinary creative space" that explores new ideas, prototypes, and contexts for future mobility technologies.
“Corporate” Speculative Design at moovel lab
Exploring Future Mobility Scenarios
Mobility, our ability to move freely and with ease, is a pressing issue that relates to climate change, urban design, and societal interactions. How do we ensure conversations around mobility policy are accessible to a broad public? moovel lab aims to make this discourse tangible through a variety of inventive products and prototypes, inspiring debate about the future mobility and the human consequences of new technology.
Raphael Reimann and Benedikt Groß will share their experiences at this creative space that's somewhere between a research lab and tinkerer’s garage, along with several stand-out projects. They will also discuss how they deploy speculative design, and make it work in a corporate environment.
Raphael Reimann is Content & Media Lead at moovel lab. He is a digital geographer and urbanaut tracing the spatial patterns we leave behind. He has a Master's Degree in Urban Culture, Society and Space and a BA in Geography from the University of Cologne. During his studies he examined how our mobility behavior shapes the cities we live in, and how these phenomena can be communicated through spatial data, prototypes, and experiments.
Benedikt Groß is a speculative and computational designer, and Director of Design at moovel lab. He is fascinated by the relationships between people, their data, technology and environments. He has a MA in Design Interactions from the Royal College of Art, is co-author of "Generative Design,” an acclaimed book on computation design. Benedikt is a professor of Interaction Design at his alma mater HfG Schwäbisch Gmünd.
The event is free of charge. Snacks and beverages will be provided (w/ a recommended donation for beers).
