Elemental Building

Of course the roots of design education still lay in the work at the Bauhaus. In my mind the work of metal smith Marianne Brandt illustrates the visual rules of the school and design fundamentals. This teapot-MT49 tea infuser, was designed by using the shape of a globe, a circle and a square to form the function. The story of Brandt's life is very interesting and sad. She worked a series of collages that seem to be a diary of her life-a visual thinker always.
