Free lecture: “What is Design?”

The term “design” is often used in all kinds of contexts: From “designer chair” to “design thinking” and “designed by Apple in California” to “designer drug” or toilet paper “with design”. But what exactly is design anyway?


In this lecture, the concept of design will be explained by a long-time designer and misconceptions about the term design will be dispelled.

The lecture will last approximately one hour and is intended for anyone with an interest in industrial design, usability, and questions of aesthetics

Participants are encouraged to bring their own questions. These are not only allowed but encouraged!

Why a free lecture?

Every person has his or her passion. Mine is design and everything that has to do with it. I also like to get to know new people and their points of view, so the format of a lecture is a wonderful way to combine the two.

Registration & Dates

The lecture is usually held once a month, on the last Thursday at 6:00 pm. If there is a lot of interest, it will be conducted more often. However, registration is mandatory in any case as space is limited to five people. You will be given the details when you register.

To register, please write an email with your contact details.


The lecture will take place at the premises of Nuberodesign at Albrechtstrasse 2 in Winterthur. The address can be found on Google Maps.
