Around 1865 the first pedal-powered cycle in history was invented: the high wheeler, also known as a velocipede. As a tribute to this era of enthusiasm for technology and invention, DING3000 and BASF's designfabrik embarked on an unparalleled thought experiment: how would the pedal cycle with its wheels of different sizes have looked if today's advanced materials had been accessible to the cycling pioneers? During the talk, the designers of DING3000 will present their answer with the CONCEPT 1865: a ready-to-ride velocipede that will be on display and available for inspection with an electric drive and 24 polymer plastics, some of which are highly innovative. On the basis of this project, the designers will discuss with BASF specialists how material innovations facilitate new surfaces and forms, including for other fields such as furniture design.
Free admission, registration not required.

A family is a wonderful thing. It consists of individuals that can be very different, but still belong together. Looking at our kitchen, we have a lot of individual glasses too, but usually they do not go well together. The wine glass can not be stacked into the juice glass and vice versa. Finally we can call this history with the LA FAMIGLIA glasses. LA FAMGILIA consists of four diverse glasses for any occasion that - surprisingly - can be stacked into each other, no matter how. This set of four glasses is a perfect gift, or a starting point for a revolution within your cupboard.
LA FAMIGLIA is produced and distributed by the danish label QDO.
