Things to Do

Things to Do
compiled by Rafael Koch, Jürg Lehni and Urs Lehni

The world of instruments available to the designer has expanded dramatically in recent years and thanks to rapid technological progress is today available to a broad mass of users. The works shown here reflect this democratization of the means used in various ways. On the one hand new production processes created especially for specific situations are employed, while on the other hand existing processes are appropriated, adapted and transformed. This produces an distinct aesthetic, while at the same time questioning the role of technology and its standards. The works in “Things to Do” operate within a deliberately restricted range of design possibilities. These stubborn tools can do almost nothing, but they can do it all the better.
