The definitive expression of funkiness came in the early seventies in form of the 'Pimp Look'. For example, enormous flares in the trouser legs served to focus the eye on the contrasting ultra-light fit around the crotch and bottom, while the use of expensive materials like snakeskin underlined the dressing up. 
Unfortunately, in the early seventies the white media was still focused on the mainly white, middle class Hippies, and failed to take note of the sartorial magnificence of this important style.

Hochschulgebäude Nr. 3 und erstes Ziel des Bauhaus Labs zur Recherche: die HfG Ulm, gebaut von Max Bill, 1953-55. Heute ist hier das Archiv der schon 1968 geschlossenen Schule untergebracht. Über die HfG wurde schon so viel publiziert – wir haben uns in der Ausstellung daher vor allem auf den internationalen Austausch mit dem NID und die Lehre konzentriert, die sich immer mehr von der des Bauhauses distanzierte. Der Gestalter sollte nicht als Künstler verstanden werden sondern als rational planender Koordinator, der wissenschaftliche Methoden im Entwurfsprozess anwendet – für intuitives Arbeiten blieb so wenig Platz. 
Das Gebäude spiegelt den rationalen Ansatz der HfG wieder, aber ich finde, dass es trotzdem eine warme Atmosphäre hat. 
Wie prägt Architektur den Menschen bzw. hier – die Studierenden und Lehrenden einer Designhochschule? Ich bin gespannt auf den Neubau der Folkwang...

Ecstatic to have visited the upcoming Clarice Cliff sale @christiesinc today! Her colors, patterns, and shapes make my ceramic tableware heart sing, especially since I've been under the weather for the last two days. Thank you to @natalievoorheis for sharing her expertise and enthusiasm for all things related to this sale too! Self-motivated and influenced by modern art and design, Cliff's ceramic vision was truly her own and brought functional artistic designs into many British middle class homes. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #claricecliff #artdeco #artdecoceramics #ceramics #tableware #1930s #design #designhistory #britishceramics #decorativearts #artdecostyle #pottery #color #designinspiration #vintagedinnerware #patterninspiration #colorinspiration #colorlove

At the beginning of the 20th century the textile industry lacked artistic pattern design made by craftsman. Designing for the manufacturing industry would have required such a wide range of knowledge that was not possible to obtain at home. To keep up with foreign manufacturing, Lakatos Goldberger organized the first textile art dept. in the School of Industrial Design.

I'm looking forwards to the biggest single #auction of @grimajewellery on 20th September at @bonhams1793 . Grima was in my opinion one of the few British #jewellery #designers we can call #masterjeweler and hit his heyday between #1960 and #1970 . This #citrine #diamond and #gold #bangle has an estimate of £12-£18,000 and is a good example of his quirky #style . So if you seriously collect jewellery head down to the sale or visit the #london boutique in #mayfair but make an appointment first. #designhistory #britishdesign #grimajewellery #throwbackfriday #avantguarddesign #luxurydesign #jewellerycollector #jewellerylover #jewelleryaddict #luxuryauction #modernism

1923.
Bauhaus poster by Joost Schmidt.
.. Founded in Germany in 1919, the Bauhaus — the school of building — rose from the ashes of World War I, in a hopeful period of artists and machinists creating together.

However, in part in fear of loss of the purpose of art in an increasingly industrial society, in which the ethos of arts and crafts had become unhinged from that of manufactured things. 
The school sought to fuse design with industrialization, to put into practice the new modernist ideals: to create beautiful functional things, which could be mass produced for the betterment of everyday life

18th century neoclassical architecture sourced its inspiration from ancient Greece and Rome. Around the 1770's this collided with the romantic design movement "Sturm und Drang" characterised by emotive sculpures intended to promote awe or terror. .

So good when you read a book with such soul. Exploring the green belt around British cities - neither town nor country. Living close to it was, as Grindrod writes, 'like being caught forever on the stairs'. Great subject, lovely writing.

Poster artist Adolfo Hohenstein in his studio ca. 1900.
.
Though born in Russia of German parents, Hohenstein (1854-1928) understood the Italian spirit so thoroughly that he is often called the "Father of the Italian Poster".
.
In 1874, Ricordi, the music publisher of Verdi and Puccini, established an in-house printing operation to promote its music.
.
They installed the most advanced German lithographic presses and hired the brilliant Art Nouveau master, Hohenstein, to train a staff of Italian artists.
.
By the turn of the century, a brilliant stable of talents had emerged under the tutelage of Hohenstein at Ricordi, including Leopoldo Metlicovitz, Marcello Dudovich, and Achille Mazan.

Flyer for National Park Service staff to attend a Typographic Seminar by Massimo Vignelli, "a designer of international repute." July 13th, 1977. Day one Massimo would start with a description of his approach to modern typography and end with "a critique of the design system currently being utilized by the Division of Publications." Sounds like this seminar may have laid the groundwork to transition to the Unigrid?

The Ettore Sottass exhibition at the @metbreuer, curated by @chrisalexlarsen, is one of the most thorough exhibitions I've seen. It brings context to the often impenetrable designs through interesting juxtaposition of objects, and tells the complete arc of Memphis and Post-Modern design. Very encouraged to see a decorative arts exhibition lauded so completely and exuberantly across the board. 🔲🔸❌🔷➕🔰

A man by the name of William Addis developed the modern, mass-production-ready toothbrush in the 1700's— it was made of boars' bristles attached to a bone handle! While we try to recommend more up-to-date toothbrushes, we know nothing replaces consistency and technique when it comes to dental habits. #history #designhistory #dentalcare #dentalhabits #trivia #oralhealth #dentalyeg #yegdentists
