werner aisslinger presents his ideas for the ‘home of the future’.his utopian vision takes over the museum haus am waldsee in berlin where he has divided the space into two distinct sections: on the ground floor five installations exhibit different living scenarios created specifically for the house, with a particular focus ontechnical materials and sustainability; while on the upper floor a retrospective of the german designer’s work offers a survey of his project developments,many of which have already explored the themes observed in the five domestic settings below.

 

the project has been sponsored in part by the numerous company’s which aisslinger has previously collaborated, who have helped in realizing the interventions and products which are displayed within. curated by katja blomberg, ‘home of the future’ is on show until june 9th, 2013.

immediately, as one approaches the building, they are met by a 1970s sports car parked in the driveway. covered in blue textile panels of varying tones, aisslinger brings forth ideas of up-cycling and tuning in which the vehicle’s colorful outfit stands as a reminder of the possible further use of old cars–in this case, freshened up aesthetically like ‘car fashion’–and how these practicescan be applied as a means of prolonging the life cycles of products in general.

 

aisslinger puts emphasis on the role of the designer as a redesigner.the façade of the museum is also ‘renewed’ by a fabric modification, wrapped in color fields which mask the historic architecture of the buildingwith a pixelated color gradient.

the seating landscape is composed of uniform honeycomb structures which together, display a colorful transformation–a place of refuge and escape, an opportunity for a ‘mind reset’.

the kitchen is the heart of the home–a gathering place in which to share food and stories.aisslinger expands the role of this space as more than just one of preparing food. he proposes that here, more emphasis should be put on growing and harvesting what we eat. this installation consists of a simple counter and an arrangement of hothouse shelves which turn the kitchen into an agricultural laboratory that is all about production that is complete with an aquaponic system, a cycle used in fish farming and vegetable cultivation.

 the proposed ‘textile bathroom-biotope’ integrates plants in a natural water cycle that is self-sustainable requiring no additional sources.the fabrics used to support the vegetation are conceived as fog collecting materials which have the ability to filter drinking waterfrom morning mists. an environment where ‘hard’ surfaces are generally preferred, aisslinger turns the bathroom into a ‘soft’ environment,with a washbin and bathtub which are both made from fabrics that can be rolled-up.

  • I would love to try those rooms. The shower and kitchen look interesting. I’m not sure how comfy the seating arrangement is, but it’s worth a try. The outside is beautiful, too.
