The book documents the Design Reaktor Berlin, an interdisciplinary research project on experimental product design cooperations between university students and small or medium-sized businesses in Berlin.
This is a book you want to spend time with.
Grafik Magazine, April 2009
Effectively creating five separate booklets bound into one package, onlab maintained a sense of clarity and functionality across the booklets, highlighting the common thread running through the project by linking sections of the book. Designed as both an in-depth read and an overview, the booklets are punctuated with large quotes, offering a digested read for people flickering through the book. This is, however, a book you want to spend time with, a typographic treat and an accomplished piece of paper engineering.
The book won the German Prize for Young Book Designers 2009: “The cohesion of this documentation of an experiment is determined by the subject matter of reactor and the very powerful, homogenous and harmonious typography.”
