Fascination Design.

FASCINATION DESIGN – The new do-it-yourself exhibition in the Mercedes-Benz Museum. Immerse yourself in the world of automobile design.

The FASCINATION DESIGN team at the Mercedes-Benz Museum has an exciting workshop to offer you: whether in sketching, drawing or design. Realise your own idea of the car of the future. You need no previous knowledge. The only requirement is that you enjoy creative work. An ideal studio space in a stimulating atmosphere, plus high-quality materials, are at your disposal.

At various stations you will be accompanied and assisted by highly knowledgeable team members. At the sketching table you can produce drawings and plans for your own, personal car model. Or have you perhaps always wanted to design your own steering wheel?

Try out the different design stations, and make your ideas a reality. Depending on your interests, you have a free choice of how many and which offers to take up. The accompanying exhibition shows over 100 original, high-quality exhibits from Mercedes-Benz designers, and encourages experimentation. 30 free workspaces for participants are available from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday, in the Mercedes-Benz Museum's Fascination of Technology area. Registration is directly on arrival. Waiting times may occur on occasion. Children aged under 14 years may only visit the Museum accompanied by their parents or under adult supervision of equal status. We look forward to pleasurable hours and imaginative creations.

A girl called Mercedes.

This stop-motion animation was made by three students from the Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design – Annarita Matuschka, Eduard Losing and Dirk Michael Flach – plus Stefan Heller, a freelance artist and animated film maker. Their short film, which lasts around two minutes, invites the viewer to see the history of the Mercedes-Benz brand in a new dimension. The stars of the short film include the inventors of the automobile Carl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler along with two female protagonists: Bertha Benz, who made the world’s first long-distance car journey with her sons in 1888, and Mercédès Jellinek, who gave her name to Daimler’s car brand in 1902. The individual scenes are told with skilfully drawn figures, along with buildings and scenery. The creative use of scissors, pen and paper has brought the two-dimensional protagonists to life. When it came to creating the animation, the most important tools were the film makers’ own hands and their voices which feature on the accompanying soundtrack. They also used various models which they built themselves and a computer, and the music was specially composed. From the screenplay to post-production, the film is the result of intensive teamwork.

Hungry for History.

“Hungry for History” is the work of Marco Erbrich and Florian Greth from Flyvision Media, both of whom were students at the Film Academy in Ludwigsburg until 2014. Erbrich and Greth’s film plays with the aesthetic of classic monster films. In it a gigantic shiny silver creature suddenly appears in a series of historic film sequences from the company’s archives. The Museum-shaped monster has a huge appetite for iconic Mercedes-Benz-branded vehicles. The succinct story lasts around a minute in length and all becomes clear in the final shot. The monster grew out of a digital animation of the Museum’s façade.
