Architecture & Interiors
If it’s possible for the outside of a museum to upstage the show within it, Werner Aisslinger has no one but himself to blame. The German product designer, whose show Home of the Future is currently on view at the Haus am Waldsee in Berlin, sees the future of home life as one that portends re-invention more than invention. The show’s various installations address this notion, but Aisslinger goes a step further by making the historic building itself part of the exhibition. He’s constructed a colorful textile skin for the building’s facade, wrapping it in bright, color-blocked fabric by Kvadrat, transforming and remaking the museum entirely, if only temporarily. We’d actually say that’s pretty inventive.
