The 20th session of design matters is due to take place.
19 lively debates on current or fundamental design issues so far
and a real treat to come.
We will celebrate the 20th edition of our forum for
critical debate by joining the tgm in Munich for the lecture of
one of the leading practitioners in industrial design:

Daniel Weil, born 1953 in Argentina, worked as an architect
and studied industrial design at the Royal College of Art in London.
His work has been included into the permanent exhibition
of the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Victoria and
Albert Museum. He was head of industrial design at the RCA
and today is a partner at Pentagram’s London office.

Daniel Weil’s sketch books are legendary.
Since 1978 he has filled an estimated 375 of them on his
path towards the design of such cult objects as the
Pet Shop Boys’ plastic album cover or his clock sculptures.

For him drawing is the designer’s prime instrument.
It is design thinking made visible.

Do you share this opinion? Or do you consider his approach old school?
Enjoy Daniel’s lecture and further shape your opinion.
