How a 100 year old spirit might shape the way we interact with each other in the near future.

How can we utilise this spirit to foster a new, sustainable design culture for the next 100 years to come?

Hermann Klöckner was born and raised by a science teacher and an inventor in the German country side.
After studying Design at the Berlin University of the Arts and developing several patents in the field of meta materials, he focused on interaction design, e.g. in collaboration with the known Design Studio ART+COM for museums and international clients, merging digital and physical aspects into holistic narratives like kinetic sculptures and hybrid experiences.
In addition to commercial work, Hermann Klöckner conducted several Guest-Professorships at the China Academy of Arts in Hangzhou and worked on several research projects in the field of hybrid UX and mobility.
Today, Hermann Klöckner is lucky to teach and research with international students in the historical Bauhaus-Building aiming to transfer the „Bauhaus-Spirit“ into a sustainable design culture for the 21st century. He is also a partner at the data culture studio CAVORIT.
