CLIENT: Stadt Aachen
June 2014

The city of Aachen recently commemorated the 1200th anniversary of the death of Charlemagne by hosting a three-part exhibition dedicated to the ruler of the Frankish Empire. The trio of exhibitions held under the title of “Karl der Große. Macht Kunst Schätze” (‘Charlemagne. Power, Art and Treasures’) was also accompanied by the presentation of the city’s new museum, the “Centre Charlemagne”, to visitors.

The new museum uses four epochs to demonstrate to visitors how the history of the city of Aachen is inseparably linked to the history of Europe as a whole.

Its exhibition is divided up into four parts, each focusing on a different epoch and combining historic and artistic exhibits with multimedia presentations.

235 MEDIA was involved in the concept development and exhibition planning for the museum and was responsible for the implementation of the media planning, the detailed planning of all media installations and the screen design.

In collaboration with Dr. Ulrich Hermanns Medien Ausstellung Transfer and cultural institution of the city of Aachen.

The development of the interactive table shown here for the catering industry was one of the pilot projects of 235 MEDIA ® evolution, intended to optimally combine elements from art, design and technology. The product qualities of the system are geared to the needs of gastronomy with regard to aesthetic-sensory quality, involvement, emotion and function, moods, etc. The interactive processes create new moments of experience, which redefine the relationship between space and user, between real and virtual communication levels.

The basic concept includes a menu selection, which can be tailored to different needs. As in a modular system the application is extensible, eg through games, video or camera recordings or the associative visualisation of the proposal. In addition, there are various possibilities to influence the spatial environment: different sensors allow, for example, interactive illumination control or influence on the sound level.

The presentation should provide an idea of the manifold possibilities for the use of interactive tables in the field of gastronomy. In concrete applications these opportunities would be customised to individual needs and space specifications.
