LAPSE IN TIME / catalogue design, photography


For the exhibition ʻLapse in Timeʼ in Lisbon (curated by Hans Maier-Aichen, professor for product design at Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design) we designed the catalogue and the signage of the show.
We asked the exhibiting designers, to send us images of the material and the tools they used to work with to emphasise the character of work-in-progress. We combined those images with photographs of Lisbon and erased all traces of human activity — no cars, no people, no signage.

By combining both levels of imagery, we portrayed Lisbon as an empty stage on the verge of becoming the center of a lot of different events and activities.
