The arched halls of the Bavarian National Museum intervened by a further collaboration between Stefan Diez and the porcelain company Rosenthal. MOBILE was, although not a product, a clear message on approaching industrial design. The project allowed Stefan Diez to experiment in an early stage with the museological frame.
This collaboration with Rosenthal, which followed both TEMA and GENIO, turned into a public exhibition of Rosenthal’s products and was shown during the Design Parcours Munich 2004. The event took place at the Bavarian National Museum, home to one of the greatest collections of cultural history in the region. Stefan Diez decided to suspend cutlery from a mobile hanging in one of the historical interiors, rendering the products visible from all sides. Alarmed to prevent anyone from removing its parts, forks, knives, and spoons hover between the lamps from which they hang and the polished table surface. As a design project, the mobile and its parts were made from lasercut and powder-coated sheet metal.
