Six German designers were invited by Design Quartier Ehrenfeld (DQE) to run the workshop "More than Design" in the context of Istanbul Design Biennial.
Jörg Mennickheim worked with his group out of turkish and german students on a lighting object for the well-known Tünel Passage. The workshop offered an opportunity to rethink the unique design-production models of Istanbul, especially of small-scale production in old neighbourhoods where crafts are still prevalent, such as Şişhane and Galata with their unique networks which make it possible to create, design and produce on the spot as part of an instantaneous process. The products are showcased in the exhibition course of the new Design Biennial from octobre 13th to decembre 12th 2012.
