What will mobility look like in the future? This question is explored in a new exhibition: “Simply Move”. Staged by bayern design, the Center of Excellence for Design of the State of Bavaria, in cooperation with Munich Airport, Simply Move covers topics ranging from self-driving cars and vertical take-off taxis to Munich Airport’s unique innovation center LabCampus. Visitors can experience the nine exciting future visions in the Terminal 2 check-in area.
Along with such participants as BMW, Lilium and the German Aerospace Center, the exhibitors presenting their future mobility concepts include LabCampus, a 100% subsidiary of Munich Airport. In the future, this interdisciplinary innovation campus might be the place where some of the concepts featured in the exhibition are adopted and implemented. What’s more: The 500,000 square meter campus offers companies, research institutions, start-ups and creative people ideal conditions to collaborate on the development, testing and presentation of new products. In cooperation with the renowned Senseable City Lab of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), LabCampus is being turned into a smart city, providing ideal conditions for testing innovative mobility solutions. Autonomous driving, e-mobility, sharing and pooling concepts and innovative micromobility ideas will become a reality here.
“Simply Move” marks the start of a five-part exhibition series highlighting innovative design achievements and products from Bavaria. Visitors can see it in the exhibition space in the south departure area of Terminal 2 until February 27 2019. After “Simply Move”, the focus will shift as of March to “Digital Nature”, an exhibition dedicated to ways of complementing or extending the natural design of the human body through digitalization and other innovative concepts. Other themes of the series, which will continue until early 2020, will be “Discoverers”, “Well Connected” and “Smart Living”.
