Design Reactor Berlin

Design Reactor Berlin is a research project of the Udk (Berlin University of Arts). Their aim is to encourage collaborations between small companies and designers, in order to investigate strategies and prospects for post-industrial locations, based on Berlin as an example. The catalogue was done by Onlab and won the German prize for young book designers 2009. Grafic magazine wrote something more about the book.

“Effectively creating five separate booklets bound into one package, onlab maintained a sense of clarity and functionality across the booklets, highlighting the common thread running through the project by linking sections of the book. […] Designed as both an in-depth read and an overview, the booklets are punctuated with large quotes, offering a digested read for people flickering through the book. This is, however, a book you want to spend time with, a typographic treat and an accomplished piece of paper engineering.”
