is a 4.5 metre long illustrated history of design, which can either be used as a booklet, or unfolded as a large poster. It includes examples from important epochs and exemplary forms - be it in the shape of a kidney-shaped table designed by Isamu Noguchi as an example for organic design, or the ground plan of Daniel Libeskind's Jewish Museum in Berlin, representative of deconstructionism. Numerous photos and information on historical developments, outstanding works and designers from each epoch accompany the design history, making the Designline
important both as an example, and in terms of product language. The Designline
is interdisciplinary and synoptic, covering industrial and graphic design and architecture. The documented period begins with the industrial revolution. Text in English and German.
