ABOUT THE PROJECT

The European Patent Office asked for an exhibition that would present the generally dull subject of a patent application in an interesting and fascinating way. The exhibit explains how ideas are realized and how they can benefit from patent protection. Structured in eight areas, such as medicine, general, mobility and the environment, several patent products were selected to show innovative inventions from garage tinkerers to industry groups. 

ABOUT THE ASSIGNMENT

To conceptually show how ideas rotate in an inventor’s head, a round form was conceived for the exhibition design. Patent objects were integrated into sphere-shaped spaces and a film completed the explanation.
