Displaying Futures – How displays influence architecture

Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, is holding its “Displaying Futures”’ symposium in Shanghai, China on November 6, 2014. Focusing on the theme “Building Innovation – Displaying Architecture”, experts will discuss questions concerning the impact of innovative display solutions on architecture as well as the life of the people therein. The Displaying Futures Shanghai symposium is the fourth in a series of annual symposia held since 2011, in which Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, has set out to explore new avenues through an inspiring exchange between designers, artists, communications experts, architects and scientists.

Inspiration for display manufacturers, designers and other experts

The "Displaying Futures" initiative, which was launched in 2011, creates space for interaction, interdisciplinary exchange and mutual inspiration for display and material producers, designers, architects, artists, scientists and experts from other fields. The aim is to develop scenarios beyond pure technical approaches that show how constantly changing human needs with respect to communication and mobility are impacting the properties of displays and how display and material producers can already adapt to these today.

Publication of Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany.
There are two different, unaffiliated companies that use the name MERCK. Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, which operates this website, uses the firm name “Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany,” in the United States and Canada, and also uses “EMD Serono” in biopharma, “MilliporeSigma” in life science and “EMD Performance Materials” in materials business. The other company, Merck & Co., Inc. holds the rights in the trademark MERCK in the United States and Canada. Merck & Co. is not affiliated with or related to Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, which owns the MERCK trademark in all other countries of the world.   To reflect such fact and to avoid any confusion, certain logos, terms and business descriptions of the publications on this website have been substituted or modified, such as by referring to “Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany” instead of “Merck” standing alone.  Publications on this webpage, therefore, slightly deviate from the otherwise identical versions accessible outside the United States and Canada.
