Sound of Design

App

The sounds design objects make are often just as characteristic as their design. And so from 21 February, 2019 visitors will able to listen to the sounds of various exhibition items from our collection thanks to the web-app Sound of Design. Using mobile devices or their home computers they will be able to delve into the world of design noises. Sounds range from historical telephones via the engine noises of iconic cars through to the clacking of a keyboard.

We are adding sounds to our collection so as to integrate this acoustic dimension of our exhibition items into our presentation – above all with a view to the planned display area. By publishing this archive in our Web-app it will form part of the multimedia experience visitors can enjoy while also infusing life into objects that might otherwise seem remote museum pieces. By way of introducing Sound of Design we are launching a topical focus on the era of the economic miracle (1950s/1960s), in which new electrical devices and with them diverse sounds entered people’s everyday lives.
