The “Ulm Stool”, which was designed by Max Bill, became the icon of the educational program of one of the leading design schools in post-war Germany. And while such an attribution is overwhelming for a single object, it is also a huge honor. The design duo chmara.rosinke (Ania Rosinke and Maciej Chmara) was commissioned by the recently established Design Campus at Schloss Pillnitz to develop a series of multifunctional furniture and an interior that reflects the mission of the location. A counterpoint to the architecture of the early 18th-century baroque palace on the river Elbe, the former summer residence of the Saxon royal court, which is now home to the Kunstgewerbemuseum of the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden. The campus brings together the museum, a summer school, all-year-round labs, and an international and transdisciplinary network of partners and sees itself as a research and development platform, whose role is to address the most urgent design challenges of our time. Every summer it becomes a “school of utopias”, a temporary design studio for participants and experts from around the world.
