Writing tables, media modules, presentation furniture, and seating in Textile Board in Cotton White. 

Simon Busse and Ina Bauer developed a sustainable exhibition concept at Württemberg State Library to celebrate the 250 years anniversary for Friedrich Hölderlin.  “Aufbrüche – Abbrüche. 250 Jahre Friedrich Hölderlin” consists of a modular set-up of walls and furniture and combines graphics, furniture design, technology and, last but not least, sustainability to create a holistic spatial experience.

The furniture is specially designed to match the dimensions of the showcases and - depending on need and function - it transforms into desks, media modules or seating.

The modules were made of Textile Board and all furniture was assembled directly on site with specially developed connectors to make it a valuable contribution to resource-saving processing. Thanks to the choice of material as well as to the modular construction, the furniture can also be used again in subsequent exhibitions.
