We take an honest approach to design, disregarding anything that could possibly detract from making of our beautiful suits, this is a belief inspired and upheld by Dieter Rams and the Ulm school of design.
The Ulm Model at Raven Row has been curated Peter Kapos, lecturer at Camberwell College of Arts and director of Das Program and features an eclectic mix of the student’s works from 1953 to 1968.
The Ulm School of Design (HfG Ulm) in Southern Germany pioneered an interdisciplinary and systematic approach to design education – known as the Ulm Model – that was to become universal. This is the first exhibition in the UK to represent the achievements of the school, including the foundation work in drawings and models by the students as well as the radical designs famously commissioned from the school by corporate clients such as Braun and Lufthansa.
I would highly recommended this to anyone interested in design and along with the unveiling of the New memorial honouring Frank Pick at Piccadilly Circus station earlier this month and the opening of the New design museum on November 24th there lots to see and do this month.
