buchmesse leipzig 16

Stand for the 'institute for book and media design' at the book faire in Leipzig in 2016.

The only decoration were patches catching the viewers eye by irritating it and creating a homogenous appearance. They were created by overlaying a huge ammount of opaque and transparent stickers with a hatch pattern

Stand for the 'institute for book and media design' at the book faire in Leipzig in 2016.
When designing the stand the approach was to reduce it as much as possible in order to set the focus on the content - the books. Therefore we decided to place a huge bookshelf in the middle of the stand, surrounded by simple, cubic walls and benches for the visitors to rest on.
In order to make the books pop out even more we decided to go with simple, untreated MDF and ready-made electronics as a base material which creates a nice contrast between the temporary aesthetics of the stand and the finished, beautifully crafted books.
With simple stickers we then created huge patches that connected the individual components of the stand and caught the eye of everybody walking by.

Developed on a tight budget together with the communication designers Sven Tillack and Valentin Alisch within about 2-3 weeks including manufacturing.
