In the Experimental Design Master Studio, current and future living environments are critically questioned and redesigned. We investigate processes and translate a norm-critical, post-disciplinary and post-anthropocentric stance into an experimental design practice. Research-based engagement with current social and environmental challenges such as climate change, social inequality, demographic change, and technological transformations of our living worlds is fundamental to students' work.

Dongzhu has a bachelor’s degree plus working experience in the field of furniture design. She has been passionate about material explorations, and the intricate symbiosis between humans and objects in our living environments beyond the realm of furniture. Deborah is a floral and experimentaldesigner, whos projects include research about biomaterial like bioluminescent bacterias and plant colors as well as afabric design collection inspired by the microstructures of flowers. Together we are doing a master in experimental design at the HGK in Basel, Switerland. Through the fascination for plants, hydroponics and sustainability we founded LUE.
