In 2015 the display collection of the former research and training centre of the sugar industry – Berlin Wedding’s Sugar Museum – was incorporated into the German Museum of Technology’s permanent exhibition. When designing the new exhibition site, gewerkdesign chose to include a few memories and references to the former sugar museum; for example, the specimens of beetles harmful to the sugar beet that have been preserved in fluid or the former sugar institute’s research material on sugar cane.
The second part of the new exhibition is dedicated to sugar compounds used for purposes other than sweetening food; for instance, as building matter, for energy storage or for coding and transmitting information. The room is surrounded by a large wall containing texts, lighting and life-sized illustrations of people who have a very special relationship with sugar.
