The unconventional Path to Inspiration

DECODER unlocks. DECODER connects. DECODER is a driving force. DECODER fosters experiments. DECODER is inquiry, play and art. DECODER makes us better. DECODER is how. DECODER is wow.

Opening our doors to top creatives and innovators from various fields—DECODER is an opportunity for us to collaborate on deconstructing and decoding thought patterns, work processes and communication.

DECODER #003 – When Flowers start to tweet

For the third edition of DECODER, we joined forces with Berlin horticultural project, the Prinzessinnen Gardens, to design an interactive office garden. More than growing vegetables, this is where ideas and concepts for the digital world are cultivated. A place where the flowers tweet when they’re thirsty, if it’s too sunny or shady, if the courtyard’s too loud or if vibrations are disturbing their growth.

DECODER #002 – Small but Powerful

What is a square meter? Why does this unit of measurement exist? And what happens when one builds a house to fit on exactly one square meter? Together with the designer and architect behind Hartz IV furniture and the founder of the 1Sqm House Movement, we resolved to find out. The result: six different houses and six different use cases.

DECODER #001 – Just do it

No guidelines, no restrictions – just do it. The objective of DECODER #001 was to tackle one’s own creative tasks, in a completely open and unconventional way. The first DECODER weekend workshop was led by none other than Eike König, one of the most important and celebrated German communication designers.

The world is made up of codes. How does one run a company? How does one find ideas? How are property prices determined? At the DECODER workshops we try to understand these codes, question and decipher them.
