rumkugelbahn

a 'sweet' representation of Vienna Design Week

  • commissioned by

    Vienna Design Week

rumkugelbahn was designed and build as Vienna Design Week Embassy during the DMY Design Festival in Berlin 2010. Since then it was shown as well in Vienna and in Prague.
The playful installation is a kind of big marble run, but instead of marbles, little rum-chocolate balls find their way through the tracks. On their way through the installation, the little chocolate balls touch, roll- and jump through and bump into various design objects from different projects and designers from past editions of Vienna Design Week. By following the chocolate, the audience automatically looks at the included objects and watches narrowly the installation.
In the end one receives, as a little reward, the chocolate ball.
