David Weigend


I lead the Lab at the Futurium in Berlin. The Lab provides an 600m3 interactive and participatory space in order to conceive alternative futures, experiment with new technologies and explore current scientific developments. I have a background in future science, economic and design. My Interests lay in the field of speculative (co)design, foresight methodology, game design and science communication.


How to be modern today?

Melt with technology. Love the craft. Look for the real life. Believe in beauty. Print something in 3D. Find yourself. Constantly. Think postmaterialistic. Bring maximum performance. Love communism. Practice capitalism. Think global. Be empathic with the world. Practice utopian thinking. Remain optimistic. Give away your SmartWatch. Buy an electric car. Date a biohacker.
