This project contemporizes not only the aesthetic attributes of the Bauhaus but also the theoretical underpinnings of the movement. The goal of Bauhaus was to create “good design for everybody.” This was achieved by embracing industrial manufacturing materials and methods in new ways, making the constraints of manufacturing into opportunities for new aesthetic discovery.
This graphic composition follows grid logic and only uses a few part typologies, simplifying and unifying the project. Using industrial meshes, standard sheet sizes, and powder coating, techneForm highlights inherent material properties rather than fighting them. The resulting project is one that is efficient in its use of materials, colors, and structure.
