Also Henning Brehm told us more about the work of fake designer as we was in his office “Schein-Berlin”. For remember “Schein-Berlin”, a design office in Berlin, are Henning Brehm, Jan Hülpüsch and the photographer Daniel Porsdorf.
The work of a fake designer is real interesting, but this designer must like variety and also like to have a look in all the other fields of design. They must work really fast there, and they should be free of perfection and egoism, what is quite normal for a designer. There is no place and time to make the products really new and special. No they must work only with the feeling that you could find this product exactly in this way today in a supermarket. So the team of “Schein-Berlin” for example prepares the product range of the early evening series GZSZ (good times, bad times”) and also it works on fake stuff for movies like “V for Vendetta” or “The good German”. This job of a fake designer is so fast-paced and stressful, because it is often necessary to design a new fake product directly on the spot and also in a short time. Stickling for details and perpetual window-dressing are not asked for but rather good knowledge of products, inventiveness and speediness. This kind of job is not everyones cup of tea, but anyway interesting, time-consuming and full of action. Also have a look on the website of “Schein-Berlin” and Henning Brehm for more information and knowledge about the work of them.
