Cover Story: Journey Through the Past
Be it graphic or product design, the ideas we present in this issue look like objects straight out of the past. Although they’re state-of-the-art! Renowned Vienna-based essay writer Wolfgang Pauser asks whether “retro” is possibly the only possible response to an over-technological present. Ginger Ostle analyses the Mod style of the new Mini Scooter E and HD Schellnack reports on the handcraftsmanship trend in graphic design. Moreover, we present the new corporate design for the Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau, created by Eike König’s Hort. Gerrit Terstiege talks to Peter Saville about the subject matter chosen for what is now a famous LP cover, which quite literally floated right before his eyes.
