form Nº 285. Design and Prosthetics

In Germany alone, 7.8 million people live with severe disabilities. In form 285, prosthetics will be our main theme; we will be looking at physical limitations and how to alleviate and overcome these through design. The topic is wide-ranging, since a smartphone can also be seen as a prosthesis. And didn’t Sigmund Freud state as early as 1930 that humans were trying to become a “prosthetic God”? So it’s high time to find out what’s new in prosthetics.

As always there are three selected articles complemented with additional visuals from this issue that you can read online on our website.

We sift through the pages of Augmented Books, that give new life to supposedly declining medium. We talk to the self-proclaimed cyborg Enno Park about what it means to be human: I’m a Cyborg, but That’s OK. We also had the honour to talk with Florian Hufnagl, the long-time director of the The Design Museum in Munich and one of the most renowned design experts worldwide, shortly before his death.
