The new, viewer-oriented set design for the ZDF programme WISO combines a clear design concept with a modular, flexible structure.
To develop a new studio set design for this classic amongst consumer magazines.
A modular design that transfers the spectator-oriented brand core of the format into the room with a clear design language.
The result is a sculptural set of five layered modules which, through the use of media technology, gives the room depth gradation and allows numerous camera angles. In addition, the modularity of the studio enables efficient setup and dismantling in the fast-moving world of television.
“TV sets today are much more than decorative accessories and background for the presenters. Rather, they are to be understood as explanatory spaces with a sovereign design for better conveying of the topics. The studio design is a contribution to strengthening the brand identity of ZDF across all channels”.
