The Designline is a 4.5 metre long design history, which can either be used as a booklet, or unfolded as a large poster. It shows the history of the design with examples from important epochs and exemplary forms – be it in the shape of a Kidney-shaped table designed by Isamu Noguchi as an example for organic design or the ground plan of Daniel Libeskind's Jewish Museum in Berlin, representative of deconstructionism. Numerous photos and information on historical developments, outstanding works and designers from each epoch accompany the design history, making the designline important both as an example and in terms of product language. The designline is interdisciplinary and synoptic, covering industrial and graphic design and architecture . The documented period begins with the industrial revolution. Sara Hausmann, communication design student at the Folkwang University, and Achim Böhmer, qualified communication designer, live and work in Dortmund. Bernhard E. Bürdek, professor for design theory and design methodology, author of numerous books on product design, teaches at the Offenbach am Main Design College.
