In the frame of the International Workshop Week, we will host the bi-annual event "Querblicke Spezial – Designers present their work" at the Institute of Industrial Design. During this edition of the event, the invited guests will talk about their practices, that challenge and expand our understanding of design, tackling environmental, societal and technological issues.

Andrea Anner and Thibault Brevet started a collaborative practice together. They have been informally working alongside on a number of projects but a common will to explore specific themes emerged. The practice develops around the idea of Non-Industrial Robotics: Three years ago they started experimenting with industrial robotic systems such as robotic arms and industrial automation processes. Together they develop works exploring Human-Machine Interactions through the lens of kinetic and interactive devices. The studio is currently in Residence at Atelier Luma in Arles.

Dr. Nelly Ben Hayoun-Stepanian dubbed the Willy Wonka of Design and Science, award-winning director and designer of experiences Dr. Nelly Ben Hayoun is a critical explorer, and a fearless and passionate provocateur.

She is the Designer of Experiences at the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute, Chief of Experiences at We Transfer, and a member of the Space Outreach and Education committee at the International Astronautical Federation.

Nushin Isabelle Yazdani is an interaction and transformation designer, artist and AI researcher. In her work, she examines the interconnectedness of digital technologies and social justice, artificial intelligence and discrimination - from an intersectional feminist perspective. She creates collaboratively with the communities that are directly impacted by the designed outcomes and seeks to explore design processes that dismantle oppressive structures.
