In the design process, the actual realisation of projects and ideas is often preceded by a simulation that can be understood as a test run whose parameters are defined as precisely as possible. In this way, errors can be uncovered in advance, prototypes can be tested, and adequate visualisations arrived at.


Especially for potentially dangerous situations, simulations play an important role as training and preparation for possible realities. Beyond such practical applications, however, simulation has also developed into an art form in its own right, with a unique aesthetic due to its obvious artificiality and deliberate non-completeness.

In our next issue we will also be reviewing Jonas Rehn’s dissertation “Gesunde Gestaltung” [Healthy Design] that deals with the influence of objects and spaces on the health and healthy behaviour of users, as well as speaking to the designers from the start-up Convercycle about the frame geometry of their cargo bike.


Nº 282 will be out on 21 February 2019.
