GACC (German American Chambers of Commerce) will hold a half day conference on “The Future of Mobility – How German Design will Move Us.” This half-day Design Event will take place in Los Angeles at the Pacific Design Center, West Hollywood on August 13th, 1pm – 8:30pm.
Design has long since crossed the border from being only aesthetically innovative. These days it has proven to be essential as a provider of solutions for the challenges of our time.
Germany has been an important influence on international design since the German Bauhaus school (1919-1933). The school favored simplified forms, rationality, functionality and had an influence on art, architecture, and industrial production design that was unmistakable.
With Germany’s 2011 decision to abandon nuclear energy completely, Germany has become an example of an economy based upon renewable energy.
This August conference promises to highlight current trends in mobility solutions, discuss their impact on human behavior, and will explore electrical cars, e-bikes and airplanes. German and American design experts will introduce their ideas and applications during this half-day conference, which invites to meet and mingle with the renowned designers at a special networking reception after the program.
The spotlight during this conference will be on the new BMW i3 model with eDrive, which will serve as an example as a sustainable vehicle designed for urban areas, and which is driven purely by electric power to meet the demands of sustainable and emission-free mobility.
