‘Relaxed or serious, round or angled?’ Charles E. Osgood’s semantic differential is a type of a rating scale and origins in psychology. It uses bipolar adjectives as a basis of valuation.

‘die ungeheure form / the monstrous form’ is a research project, which Moritz started with his diploma thesis. It’s the designation for a form the designer is not able to integrate into his concept of design. The title describes a form which appears to be non-designable. For the designer this form is monstrous. He attempted to fathom the barriers of designability: when is a problem a design problem? For this purpose he developed a 13-step-matrix which sorts design problems in relation to their grade of fuzziness. For every grade he designed a theoretical object. The research will continue on the project website.
