"The Essence of Things" looks for the images of reduction in design. This extensive illustrated catalogue about the eponymous exposition focusses on industrial design, starting with an overview the wide horizon of the theme. In detailed research and descriptive representations, it contemplates the meaning of technologic and economic requirements as well as the dialogue of design fine arts and the essential ethic trademarks, which are demanded of design. It investigates the inconspicuous heroes of everyday life, questions humans as the measure of things and finds a purpose in omission as a paradoxical intervention.

Colourful images and descriptions of more than 160 objects accompany the bilingual texts by Dirk Baecker, Martin Hartung, Wiebke Lang and Mathias Schwartz-Clauss.
