Dr. Hauschka presents Symbiotic Habitat by dieDAS
Dr. Hauschka is pleased to present Symbiotic Habitat, an installation of unique works by the first fellows of Germany’s dieDAS - Design Akademie Saaleck, a recently launched academy dedicated to innovative, sustainable, and socially relevant design, architecture, and craft. Guided by the partners’ shared pioneering spirit and commitment to engaging the natural world with humility and respect, the presentation explores possibilities for crafting a mutually beneficial coexistence with nature while spotlighting works from the next generation of craft and design.
Featured emerging talents include Marginal Studio, Pollyanna Moss, Carolina Pacheco, Sasson Rafailov, Daniel Tish and Basse Stittgen.
Within an immersive, mycelium-wrapped space, the young talents’ objects engage in dialogue with the innovative bio-material backdrop, calling to mind questions—and possible guideposts—as we navigate the path forward in rethinking and rebuilding our relationship to nature, in pursuit of a truly symbiotic dynamic. The presentation features a constellation of Mogu tiles composed of mycelium—the vegetative structure of mushrooms—and agro-industrial residues.
Symbiotic Habitat is curated by dieDAS Artistic Director, biomaterial expert, and Mogu founder Maurizio Montalti.
