Hyundai Motor and Vitra Design Museum present Hello Robot

Hyundai Motor and Vitra Design Museum announce the opening of the Hello Robot. Design at the intersection of people and machines “(Hello, Robot. Design between Human and Machine) at the Hyundai Motorstudio in Busan, South Korea.
The Busan exhibition will be the first in a series of similar events to be held at Hyundai Motorstudio galleries in various cities around the world from 2021 to 2023. The exhibition will feature over 200 exhibits exploring the diversity of forms of interaction between humans and machines, with an emphasis on how design responds to different problems and harmonizes their relationship in a modern context.
“Through the exhibition“ Hello Robot. Design that bridges people and machines ”Hyundai Motor and the Vitra Design Museum are trying to rediscover important concepts such as future mobility, revolutionary customer experience, sustainability and sustainable lifestyles,” said Thomas Schemera, Executive Vice President President and Head of Customer Service, Hyundai Motor. “We will demonstrate our commitment to rethinking people’s daily mobility needs and advancing human progress through increased investment in robotics and innovative transportation solutions,” he added.
Exhibition “Hello, Robot. Design at the intersection of people and machines ”is dedicated to the study of a wide range of robotic technologies that significantly enrich our daily life. It will show examples of designs that affect how people and machines interact. Since its premiere in 2017, the exposition has already been shown in Europe, and now, thanks to the cooperation of Hyundai Motor and the Vitra Design Museum, it is coming to Asia for the first time.
200 exhibits will be on display in six exhibition halls under the titles Science and Fiction, Programmed to Work, Friend and Helper, Become One, Hyundai Motor Group and Boston Dynamics Robot Lab and Hyundai Motor Group Robot Lab: design of the future life with augmented reality ”.
Each exposition is divided into 14 thematic blocks reflecting the current state of robotics and its role in modern society. Each theme clearly demonstrates how design, acting as an intermediary between humans and machines, traditionally and predictably influenced their complex interactions, and also shaped our communication with the outside world and communication with technological equipment. Exhibition “Hello, Robot. Design at the intersection of people and machines ”goes beyond the usual forms and functions, expanding the horizons of conceptual design for visitors. It serves as a timely invitation to reflect on a range of vital issues arising from human progress.
Visitors will be shown unique examples of robotics developed by Hyundai Motor, including a wearable medical robotic exoskeleton and an autonomous robot for serving DAL-e customers. In addition, the exhibition will feature two robots developed by Boston Dynamics (currently part of the Hyundai Motor Group): Atlas, the world’s first dynamic humanoid robot, and Spot, a 4-legged robot whose flexibility and maneuverability allows it to move. on various types of surfaces.
Along with these robots, visitors to the exhibit will be able to enjoy immersive media art and original visual effects developed by Lovot Lab, a company powered by the ZER01NE open innovation platform launched under the auspices of Hyundai Motor. In addition, the exhibition will feature many works created in virtual reality. The authors took inspiration from prototypes of robots developed by the Hyundai Motor Group Robotics Lab and creatively reimagined them using augmented reality technology.
After the premiere in Busan, the exhibition “Hello Robot. Design at the intersection of people and machines ”will open at Hyundai Motorstudio in Beijing. Hyundai Motor Company and Vitra Design Museum will host new joint exhibitions at Hyundai Motorstudio galleries around the world.
Hyundai Motor’s partnership with the Vitra Design Museum, launched in July 2021, will last until the end of 2023. In close cooperation, the parties will conduct several projects dedicated to topical issues and problems of our time, as well as covering the topics of technologies of the future, mobility and sustainable development.
