Design, architecture and advertising studio Bayern Design has launched an exhibition in Terminal 2 (T2) at Munich Airport, Germany, showcasing mobility solutions for the future, all designed and developed by Bavarian companies.
The Simply Move exhibit includes BMW with its ConceptLink smart motorcycle; Lilium with a vertically launching E-Lufttaxi; EVUM Motors with the robust aCar electric vehicle; Hyve with its ePaddle for skaters; Mecuris with a range of 3D-printed prosthetics; the PG Bugatti Bike, which weighs less than 5kg (11 lb); the German Aerospace Center’s ROboMObil self-driving vehicle, which fuses robotics and electro-mobility; TUMCREATE, with its e-mobility concept Gemini; and N + P Industrial Design and AVA with various smart vending machine concepts for eating on-the-go, regardless of your mode of transportation.
Munich Airport hopes that its LabCampus smart city concept might serve as the place where some of the concepts featured in the exhibition are eventually adopted and implemented. The 500,000m2 (5,380,000ft2) innovation hub will look to offer companies, research institutions, startups and creative individuals the ideal conditions to collaborate on the development, testing and presentation of new products.
Simply Move marks the start of a five-part exhibition series highlighting innovative design achievements and products from Bavaria. Visitors can see it in the exhibition space in the south departure area of T2 until February 27, 2019. After Simply Move, the focus will shift to Digital Nature, an exhibition dedicated to ways of complementing or extending the natural design of the human body through digitization and other innovative concepts.
