Ist das Ei faul, hilft auch das Brüten nichts* (You can’t hatch a chick from a rotten egg)
A workshop with language games and drawing pencils (in German)
For 4th
– 10th grades, vocational schools and secondary schools

As a design object, an egg is perfectly formed. Starting with the egg, we shall be looking during our tour at the question of how the characteristics of design objects can be described. After a dialogue-based tour of the exhibition in the Toni Areal we shall, with the language we use, approach your personal favourite objects in the exhibition. We think that we know the things around us, but is it really easy to name them, describe them or explain why an object is well designed? In the second half of the workshop we approach the designed (lat.designare= to mark) objects with our pencils and round off our tour with drawings.
