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.
techneForm operates in much the same way. The graphic composition follows grid logic and only uses a few part typologies, simplifying the project and unifying it as a whole. Using industrial meshes, sheetstock, and powdercoating, this project is utilizing the inherent structural and material properties of these components, rather than fighting them. The resulting project is one that is efficient in its use of materials, colors, and structure.
