Today the audible identity of a project or a product has become a very important design parameter. The sound a product makes contributes to its brand identity as well as its visual or functional design. Christian Schneider is a Frankfurt-based musician and sound designer. In 1999 he founded pearls music, a music studio specialized in acoustic identity and sound design. In his talk “boom tschak bang. Sound Design, Noise Attacks and Music” he gives an insight into the process of producing sound designs and gives examples of the work he did for clients such as Mercedes, Schöfferhöfer, Deutsche Bahn, Milka or Kylie Minogue.

The lecture is preceded by an interactive workshop in sound design (applications, uses, environments, ...) led by Christian Schneider. The workshop takes place in Mudam's Auditorium from 3-5 pm. The main aim of the workshop is to create an acoustic identity for Design Friends!

Monobloc tells the story of the best-selling piece of furniture of all time. Estimates claim there are a billion of these cheap plastic chairs in use all over the world. This unassuming chair threatens our environment and good taste but is indispensable for millions of people to whom a chair is a chair and nothing more. This is the tale of an object viewed through a critical eye on globalisation - a story that spans functionality and beauty, capitalism and sharing, consumption and recycling.
