Design Entwurf 1.0 is to be completed as an individual artistic course in the first stage of the Industrial Design degree course. The course is related in content to the department-wide semester theme Crafts and Industry – Textile: from Fibre to Fabrics to Form.


Fibres for manufacturing textile products either come from nature or are produced chemically. A distinction is made between two groups: natural fibres, which are plant or animal fibres, and manufactured fibres, which are natural or synthetic polymers (made from egg white or cellulose) or petroleum, coal, etc., as well as inorganic fibres (e.g. metal).

Textiles have accompanied mankind from the very beginning, and fabrics and the use of them have a long tradition. - We will take an overview of the broad topic of textiles: What methods has mankind developed to warm ourselves (with fabric), to protect ourselves, to wrap ourselves, and to make textiles usable. To weave, to sew, to felt, to make spatial products, etc.

In recent years, however, new applications and technical innovations have developed in more and more product applications, such as in the furniture and consumer goods sector, in the automotive industry, in the architecture of systems, in the merging of materials or in the development of new techniques for the production of multidimensional fabrics.

Specialisation in technical knitwear is possible, and materials research and integration for recycling and circular economy concepts will also be a topic.

Examination Modalities

Project development, prototype, presentation, and documentation are assessed.


The course has an immanent examination character, a regular attendance at the weekly meetings is required.
Also complementing registration of 3 ECTS with Stefan Diez is required.
